Scrollable checkboxes inside uipanel GUIDE

5 views (last 30 days)
I have a uipanel created in MATLAB figure which vertically lists the .txt files present in the current directory using checkboxes.
The problem is that when there are large number of files; more than which can be fitted in the panel, the panel isn't able to show them.
Is there a way to attach a scrollbar with the uipanel to scroll through all the files?
Picture is also attached.

You can't do it with a simple Matlab component, but you can use 3rd party scrollable panels or write your own if you really want.
I wrote my own from components, but there is now one in the excellent GUI Layout toolbox which I use regularly for building apps and made use of components from in building my own scrolling panel (I think it either didn't exist in that toolbox or there was something I didn't like about it when I wrote my own, but the toolbox is high quality so their scrolling panel shouldn't cause you any problems).
