I am trying to figure out the MATLAB command which will set the background color for the background of the GUI itself (to change it from the default grey). I have done some searching and have found some stuff, but this code only seems to change the color of the buttons which I have inside the GUI, not the overall background of the GUI. Any thoughts?
Here's the code that changes the buttons:
set(0,'DefaultUicontrolBackgroundColor',[1 0 0]);

does this do what you want:
set ( 0, 'DefaultFigureColor', [1 0 0] )
you can se the colour of any individual figure:
set ( gcf, 'Color', [1 0 0] )
or its best to keep track of your figures rather than assume gcf will be the one you want:
hFig = figure;
set ( hFig, 'Color', [1 0 0] )
