hello, i built an routine in the app designer that starts in a push of a button and i want to create a paues toggle-button for it, i tried to write
while pausebutton.Value==1
but the program just get stuck in the loop..
it worked when i wrote-
for pausebutton.Value==1
but i need it to be a while loop so i can control manually when it will resumed.
any ideas?

one simple altenative i can give is use a property in your app. for example add this to properties:
properties (Access = public)
when you want to start the loop make shore the value is 1 (or True) and in your while loop use this :
while app.flag
in pausebutton pushed function use this :
function pausebuttonPushed(app, event)
app.flag = 0;
that will do it.
if you want the press buttom command rapidly apply to loop and pause it (skip other updates in query of app) use this in the while loop:
while app.flag
drawnow update;
