How can I assign names coming from a string array to the elements of an App?
Example: I have the following string array
CBNames= ["NameCheckBox" "PhoneCheckBox" "AddressCheckBox"]
Now, when trying to change the Value property of the PhoneCheckBox in may App, I would like to refer to it as:
app.CBNames(2).Value=1
But when I try this I receive an error message that says:
Unrecognized method, property, or field 'CBName' for class 'MAINApp'
Is there a way to do this or is this categorically impossible in Matlab?

app.(CBNames(2)).Value=1

You could create a property which stores a vector of handles to your checkboxes.
app.checkboxes=arrayfun(@(el)app.(el), CBNames);
Then, you can manipulate them as a group by doing things like,
set(app.checkboxes,'Value',1)
set(app.checkboxes,{'Value'},{1,0,1,0}')
