Hi all, Can you help me with GUI? So I need to create checkbox to draw a plot by clicking mouse on it. How can I do it?

Write an if statement that gets the value of the checkbox. When the checkbox's value is 1 then plot. This snip of code would have to be written under the function of the checkbox.
for example if the checkbox's tag is 'checkbox1' then:
if get(handles.checkbox1,'Value') == 1
plot(......)
end

But how do not plot if the checkbox is not highlighted?

The if statement takes care of that. It will only plot when the checkbox is highlighted

Hi Aleksandra,
I am not sure where you are stuck, so I try to be a little more detailed than John.
Use GUIDE to design you GUI with drag and drop. Save the GUI. Then double click on the checkbox and the m-File openes at the callback function of the ckechbox. Then use the if statement as John suggests.
