How to call matlab built-in common functions, such as open, save as, in GUI?

1 view (last 30 days)
I'm new to GUI. I had this:
f = uimenu(h0,'Label','File');
uimenu(f,'Label','Open P-file','Callback','open');
uimenu(f,'Label','Save','Callback','save');
uimenu(f,'Label','Quit','Callback','exit',...
'Separator','on','Accelerator','Q');
The 'open' doesn't popup the path-file selection window; However the 'exit' works too good. It not only closes the figure, but also closes the entire matlab.
How to call matlab common functions like: open, save, save as, print, etc...
and not to 'exit' the entire matlab?
Thanks.

If you want to close the figure, do not click on Exit, but on Close. If you want to save something inside the GUI, use uisave, if you want to print the figure, use printdlg and if you want to open files interactively, choose uiopen.

@Jian: the "list" is the MATLAB documentation itself. Learn to browse the Contents on the left-hand side of the page, and discover that the documentation is arranged by categories... it really is useful to get to know your way around it!
For example, here is the list of user-interface dialog boxes and related functions.
