How can I update a cell value in a GUIDE table by using a cell with different options from a choice list menu inside the same table?

In a table in Guide: I want to be able to choose a rock(geology) type from the choice list in my first column and automatically update columns 2,3 and 4 for the same row where I have chosen a rock type with a specific constant according to the rock value chosen in the choice list. I want to be able to do this for n rows in the first column. Please see the image I attached.

Alfonso - try using the CellEditCallback for your uitable so that you can respond to the changes in the rock type. In GUIDE, select your uitable and view the CallEditCallback so that it appears in your m file. When you change the rock type, this callback will fire and the eventdata will have the information telling you what the indices of the uitable element that was manipulated (so you will only care about those elements in the first column), what the previous data was and what the new data is. With that you should be able to update the row (obtained from eventdata.indices).

Hello Geoff. I was finally able to use and modify the elements of a cell within a uitable in Guide. All I had to do was access each element of the cell with { }. Then using a switch statement to check the selection made by the user in the choice list that I had created through the table property editor of the uitable1. Thanks for trying to help.
