waitForFigures

Block execution of a calling program as long as figures created in encapsulated MATLAB code are displayed

Synopsis

objName.waitForFigures();

Description

waitForFigures() blocks execution of a calling program as long as figures created in encapsulated MATLAB® code are displayed. Typically you use waitForFigures when:

  • There are one or more figures open that were created by a Java® class created by the MATLAB Compiler SDK™ product.

  • The method that displays the graphics requires user input before continuing.

  • The method that calls the figures was called from main() in a console program.

When waitForFigures is called, execution of the calling program is blocked if any figures created by the calling object remain open.

Caution

Use care when calling the waitForFigures method. Calling this method from an interactive program like Microsoft® Excel® can hang the application. Call this method only from console-based programs.
