Matlab App Designer get axes name from button click

8 views (last 30 days)
I have a matlab app with over 20 UIAxes. I want to mouse click on a particular axes (e.g. app.UIAxes2). Once I do that I want gca to return the title of UIAxes2. Is this possible.
essentially when I mouse click the UIAxes, I want gca to return the handle of that particular UIaxes. Can someone help me out?

I would add a tag (under "Identifiers") to the UIAxes. Then:
function UIAxesSelectedCallback(app, event)
selectedAxes = event.Source.Tag;
If you just want a handle to the axes, that's as simple as
function UIAxesSelectedCallback(app, event)
thisHandle = event.Source;
