Creating MATLAB User Interfaces


Course Number: MTLB-104

Duration: 1 day (6.5 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

MATLAB UI Training Overview

This intermediate-level MATLAB training course, Creating MATLAB User Interfaces, teaches attendees how to create graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for MATLAB programs, using both the interactive AppDesigner tool and direct programming. Students begin with the basics of GUI design and progress to advanced features such as context menus, event notification and handling, backward compatibility across MATLAB releases, and run-time performance considerations.

Note: This course can be condensed to a half-day with fewer examples and less hands-on practice. We strongly recommend the full-day version if possible.

Location and Pricing

This course is taught as a private, live online class for teams of 3 or more. All our courses are hands-on, instructor-led, and tailored to fit your group’s goals and needs. Most Accelebrate classes can be flexibly scheduled for your group, including delivery in half-day segments across a week or set of weeks. To receive a customized proposal and price quote for online corporate training, please contact us.

Objectives

  • Create usable interactive user interfaces in MATLAB
  • Create MATLAB GUIs using both AppDesigner and programmatically
  • Apply design principles in MATLAB GUIs
  • Customize and control the appearance and behavior of GUI elements
  • Understand how to handle asynchronous GUI events in user callback code
  • Understand MATLAB release compatibility and run-time performance tradeoffs

Prerequisites

Attendees should have taken Accelebrate's From MATLAB Scripts to Complete Programs course or have equivalent knowledge. Students must be comfortable using the MATLAB environment and have at least basic programming experience. No prior object-oriented experience or familiarity is assumed or required for this course. However, familiarity with object-oriented MATLAB would be helpful.
