Package app with multiple GUIs (GUIDE)

Asked by Patricia Haro on 8 Aug 2019
Latest activity Commented on by Patricia Haro on 13 Aug 2019
Recently I shared my first application in Mathworks that consists of a GUI that calls another GUI’s. When I have installed the app and tried the pushbuttons that call the other GUI’s, this error message appears: Undefined function or variable; and users who have downloaded it, reports the same error message.
I tried to put the other GUI’s in a “private” folder and change the search path, but the error message still appears.
I'm working with Matlab 2018b
Any help is greatly appreciated!

I launch the other GUIs using pushbuttons in the main GUI, and the other GUIs was included through the dependency analysis. The package app also include some files that the dependency analysis don't recognize.

Presumably your error message tells you which 'function or variable' is undefined. Is it the GUI you are trying to launch or something else?
Yes, the message tells me the name of the GUI that I´m trying to launch, but that GUI was included throughe the dependency analysis.

Hi Patricia,
In the Callback of the push button paste only the name (without any extension) of the next GUI where you want to navigate (See example below).
function pushbutton1_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
Also, in the Application Compiler under the “Files required for your application to run” tab add all the necessary .m files required to run the application.

Hi Subhadeep,
Thanks for your answer.
That's exactly what I did when I used the package app tool in the Add-Ons section. But when I tried the installation file, the main GUI does not recognize the other scripts. This is the error message:
