How to change ax.View in app desginer?

13 views (last 30 days)
Hi folks,
on my GUI im creating with App Designer I have an axes called app.UIAxes. And I have a drop down listing different viewing angles. What I want to do is the following:
By selecting a view I want to display on my axes, I enter a callback where I want to change app.UIAxes.View.
function changeView(app, event)
chosenView = app.DropDown.Value;
switch chosenView
case 1
view(app.UIAxes, [0 90]);
case 2
app.UIAxes.View = [30 30];
end
end
As you can see I tried two different ways to change the view of the axes but none of them is changing anything. after the callback the view stays the same as befor, no changes... Why? What am I doing wrong?

Problem is solved:
If you enter items data it's stored as char. So therfor you have to cast from char to double or compare a string.
In my solution I cast a double out of char and then the switch-case works fine:
function changeView(app, event)
chosenView = str2double(app.DropDown.Value);
switch chosenView
case 1
view(app.UIAxes, [0 90]);
case 2
app.UIAxes.View = [30 30];
case 3
set(app.UIAxes, 'View', [90 0]);
end
end
All three cases can be used to change the view!

yep that is exactly what I meant by comparing a string ;-)
