uigetfile is not supported for code generation. Any alternative for that!

What do you mean by that. Are you trying to use MATLAB Coder, the MATLAB Compiler Toolbox, or something else?

Yes, I am using MATLAB Coder for making my code standalone.
'uigetfile'-the command which is absolutely supported for importing the images from the current folder of MATLAB.

Hi Keshav,
For code generation in MATLAB where "uigetfile" isn't supported, consider these alternatives:
  • Directly input file paths as parameters, bypassing the need for interactive selection.
  • Utilize the file dialog functionalities of your target environment (e.g., WinAPI for Windows) to select files before passing them to your MATLAB-generated code.
  • Develop MATLAB functions that handle file paths as inputs for testing, which can be replaced or modified for actual code generation to avoid "uigetfile".
  • Try "dir" function which is given as alternative to "uigetfile" in the documentation:
