Abort Matlab Program via callback

6 views (last 30 days)
Hello,
I tried to abort my main matlab function via a callback function of an uicontrol function. A short example how I tried to implement it is given below. The problem is that the "error" in the callback only stops the callback function but not the main function. Is there a simple solution to solve this problem? Thanks for your help!
Example code:
function main
fh=figure;
PanicButton=uicontrol('style','pushbutton','Units','normalized',...
'string','Panic Button','BackgroundColor','r',...
'FontUnits','normalized','FontSize',.8,...
'position',[0,0,1,.2],'callback',{@Panic});
try
for ct=1:20
fprintf('%10.6f \n',ct);
pause(2)
end
catch ME
disp('Hooray! You made it!');
rethrow(ME)
end
end
function Panic(hObject,eventdata)
error('USER:Panic','User has pushed the Panic Button!');
end
