How to resize UI table to fill window?

14 views (last 30 days)
I am outputting a UI table within matlab and it does not fill the entire window, I have to scroll over to see all the colums of data. I have tried to change the Units to "normalized" but that has not changed it. What else can I do?
Thank you for your help!

Hi Logan,
setting Units to normalized is not enough: you have to modify also the property Position:
LastName = {'Sanchez';'Johnson';'Li';'Diaz';'Brown'};
Age = [38;43;38;40;49];
Smoker = logical([1;0;1;0;1]);
Height = [71;69;64;67;64];
Weight = [176;163;131;133;119];
BloodPressure = [124 93; 109 77; 125 83; 117 75; 122 80];
T = table(LastName,Age,Smoker,Height,Weight,BloodPressure)
fig = uifigure;
uit = uitable(fig, 'Data', T, 'units', 'Normalized', ...
'Position', [0 0 1 1]);

In this example, try to have a look to the properties of uit: you will discover a lot of ways of tweaking the appearence of the table:
>> uit
uit =

By the way, never copy program codes as images: copy them at least as text, and preferably as code (by using the appropriate icon). You will get much more help; it is very nasty to have to rewrite codes by hand.
