How use pcshow in GUI
13 views (last 30 days)
Hi you all!
I would need to use pcshow in a GUI (app design). I tried something like this:
p=pcshow(app.UIAxes, [ptCloud.vertex.x ptCloud.vertex.y ptCloud.vertex.z], ptCloud.vertex.Scalar);
p=pcshow([ptCloud.vertex.x ptCloud.vertex.y ptCloud.vertex.z], ptCloud.vertex.GKI,'Parent',app.UIAxes);
but it doesn't work.
I also tried scatter3:
p=scatter3(app.UIAxes, ptCloud.vertex.x, ptCloud.vertex.y ,ptCloud.vertex.z, 36, ptCloud.vertex.Scalar);
but it does not work either (the app crashes without giving me any error with this last one).
How can I pass the ''app.UIAxes"? Is there a guide to learn by myself?
Thank you in advance

The error message indicates "Functionality not supported with UIAxes". Also, the documentation for the Parent property in pcshow, also states,
App designer uses UIAxes by default. You could try replacing the UIAxes with regular axes within the startup function of your app though I've never tried that so I'm not fully confident that it would work.
Alternatively you can generate the figure outside of the app in an independent figure using regular axes.
Lastly, perhaps you could substitute pcshow with a different plotting function that is supported by UIAxes. scatter3 or plot3 might work depending on what you're trying to plot, although that doesn't solve the crash problem scatter3 is producing under certain circumstances.
