Adding text from calculation in app designer

2 views (last 30 days)
I am having some with creating text on a figure and writing the text coming from a variable in app designer.
The app figure displays this:
The figure I want the text on is called app.UIFigure and I would like the text to display on the bottom left. It should be formatted as:
Vertical Bias:
Horizontal Bias:
Vertical Scale factor:
The variables that calculate these:
Should be displayed after the colon.
The display of all this text will be coded in my call back function for after the user clicks on calculate the text will display.
Any suggestions or modification I should apply?

You need to add the components to the Canvas first. You can then dynamically update the value in the code. I would use the "Edit Field (Numeric)" component (3 of them).
  • Change the labels to be what you want ("Vertical Bias:", "Horizontal Bias:", "Vertical Scale factor:")
  • Make them non-editable (Component Browser > Interactivity and unselect "Editable")
  • In your code, update the Value property of the Edit Fields with the calculated values.
app.VerticalBiasEditField.Value = VB;
