I have a uieditfield field for text input.
There seem to be at least three ways to indicate to the app that we are finished entering information into this field. The ValueChangedFcn is called when (1) the user presses Enter, (2) the user presses Tab, or (3) the user changes from the app to another program running on the computer.
Is there a way to figure out which of these three events occured? In particular, I'd like to catch (3) and ignore processing the current value of the field for the moment.

I might be wrong, but you could try getting the CurrentKey property of the figure
function editFieldValueChangedCallback(src,evt)
fig = ancestor(src,'figure');
switch get(fig,'CurrentKey')
case 'return'
disp('enter was pressed!')
otherwise
disp('the user changed focus!')
end

Hmmm I am using 2020b.. maybe in 2019a the CurrentKey property of the uifigure was not fully supported.
I am using this simple code btw
f = uifigure();
ef = uieditfield(f, 'ValueChangedFcn', @(src,evt) valueChangedCallback(src,evt));
function valueChangedCallback(src,~)
% Find the figure and get the last key pressed when the ValueChangedFcn is triggered
f = ancestor(src,'figure');
key = get(f,'CurrentKey');
switch key
case 'return'
disp('User pressed enter')
otherwise
disp('User changed focus')
end
end
Maybe CurrentCharacter works in 2019a? (Im a bit lazy to check release notes haha)
function valueChangedCallback(src,~)
f = ancestor(src,'figure');
key = get(f,'CurrentCharacter');
switch key
case {char(10),char(13)} % char(10) for windows and (13) for macs I think
disp('User pressed enter')
otherwise
disp('User changed focus')
end
end
If not, you could still attach a WindowKeyPressFcn callback to the uifigure. Both ValueChangedFcn and WindowKeyPressFcn will trigger when you press enter, and you just have to think on some code something so that the 2 callbacks exchange info.
I hope this helps :)

I beg your pardon, Antonio! I tried your original solution again today in both R2019a and R2020a and it worked perfectly, thank you!! I don't know what I did wrong when I tried this and wrote back yesterday.

After typing in the edit field, if you click anywhere outside the edit field, editFieldValueChanged callback will be triggered.
Add the following line of code in the callback function.
disp("exited from editfield");
So whenever this message is displayed, user has clicked outside the app.
Hope this helps!

HI David,
As of now there is no programmatic way to tell which of the events has triggered the callback.

Thank you! That's disappointing.
