I'm trying out App Designer in ver. 2019a and attmepting to display a static image.
  1. From Designer View I select "Image" from the Component Library
  2. For Image in the Component Browser, I selected browse and found a .jpg image in the current directory (i.e., same directory in which the app is saved.
  3. When I save and run the app, I get the following stack of errors in the Command Window.
Warning: Error occurred when parsing the ImageSource value.

Here is the code in Code View:
% Create Image
app.Image = uiimage(app.UIFigure);
app.Image.Position = [432 314 100 100];
app.Image.ImageSource = 'IMG_0565.jpg';
% Show the figure after all components are created
app.UIFigure.Visible = 'on';

Apparently, I had something had gone awry on my previous installation. After reinstalling Matlab + associated toolboxes, this issue is now resolved.
