Hello,
I have two cameras named 'Logitech Webcam Pro 9000' and I used both cameras simultaneously using code:
cam1 = webcam(1);
preview(cam1);
cam2 = webcam(2);
preview(cam2);
But on both previews, the same name is coming i.e. 'Logitech Webcam Pro 9000' so I can't differentiate between cam1 and cam2. I need to write the name cam 1 and cam 2 on the preview. I used
cam1.Name = 'left cam',
but it shows the error that Name is read-only property and can't change.
So what should I do to named both previews separately?
Thanks.

I guess there are two basic options here:
  • create a wrapper class which lets you change the name, or
  • alter the name after the fact: get the figure handle and change its name.

Sir can you please provide me the sample code for the 2nd option?
