how to create used input struct names

10 views (last 30 days)
Hi. I created a struct,
data = struct()
I would like to add fields to it based on user input from app designer.
For example user writes a number '125' as input, then I want to create field called 'laserDist123mm' and add it to data struct.
data.laserDist123mm = 199;
equal to something.
is there any way to do this?
I want to add the new fields dynamically...

You could use setfield as
data = setfield(data, 'laserDist123mm', 199)
or as you have shown
data.laserDist123mm = 199;
which will add the field dynamically to the structure.
