Good morning, i am trying to compile my .exe file using matlab compiler 6.3 (2016b). in my GUI i was used to dock several data in different figures with subtab (see picture), but when i compile the app, the docking is lost. I tried reading on internet to put the DockControl 'on' for my hfig but it doesn't work.
Do you have any solution? Thank you so much

The ability to dock figures in deployed programs is available, but is intentionally blocked by the Matlab compiler. I think this limitation is regrettable, unnecessary, and completely self-defeating for MathWorks, but over the past decade I was not successful in convincing them to the contrary.
Luckily, there are several technical workarounds that do not require extensive recoding using tabs, which is the official "solution" offered for the limitation.
I will not post any workarounds publicly, but anyone with a legitimate business need to dock figures in compiled (deployed) applications is welcome to email me (altmany at gmail).
