Hey, all, thanks for reading this,
I set up a GUI uitable with some data, and I would like to use that data in another callback function. I was wondering, how do I select data on a column by column basis in other callback functions and assign it locally to variables?
Thanks for your advice

% i am not sur that i have understood
data=get(handles.uitableName,'Data')
%data is a cell array, then extract any column you want
c1=data(:,1) % the first column

data=get(handles.uitableName,'Data') If we do this, it extract all the data from table.Is there any way that i can extract selected data (highlighted) only?

Hello,
You need to assign a CellEditCallback function to the table. You can do it both programmatically and from the guide. Once you change something on any editable column, it should go that function. You can get all the data from
get(eventdata,'Data')
You can also get other information via
Indices.Indices
Indices
This would be something like:
mytable_CellEditCallback(eventdata,Indices)
get(eventdata,'Data')
Indices.Indices
Indices
end
Don't forget the assign the function first.

Thanks, I tried this and it worked out pretty well. I ended up keeping
data=get(handles.uitableName,'Data')
%data is a cell array, then extract any column you want
c1=data(:,1) % the first column
because it was a bit simpler. I will keep this in mind, though.
