Is it possible to get the path of a file using uigetfile() ?

1 view (last 30 days)
What I want to do is get the path of a file that user selects, lets say an image is in downloads folder (example: 'C:\Users\%UserName%\Downloads\image.png').
So when executing the script the path of file is saved in a string and showed in command window.
Right now I have no succes with the following, I'm I using the correct functions for this?
filepath = fileparts( uigetfile() );
disp(['This is the file path: ',filepath]);

[filename, filepath] = uigetfile();
if ~ischar(filename); return; end %user cancel
fullname = fullfile(filepath, filename);
fprintf('This is the file path: %s\n', fullname);
