GUI gives error after moving to a different computer
4 views (last 30 days)
I have written a GUI using GUIDE in order to view and analyse 3d quiver plots.
Once I moved it to a different computer (both .fig and .m files), it gives the error:
Undefined function or variable 'addToolbarExplorationButtons'.
Error in matlab.graphics.internal.figfile.FigFile/read>@(fig,~)addToolbarExplorationButtons(fig)
I also can no longer edit it using guide.
other than that, the gui actually works fine if I ignore the error, but I would like to modify it on this computer.

Another possible workaround would be to create a stub of this function
Unfortunately this function is not a builtin, so builtin can't be used to call the original
still here's a solution that should enable keeping the functionality in later versions and the stub in earlier versions is this:
This is a very dirty workaround, but it works for me with R2018b, I don't have an earlier version to test when the file is missing, but I think it should work
Anyway, creatae an .m file function for the misbehaving addToolbarExplorationButtons (probably need to do the same thing with removeToolbarExplorationButtons as well
originalFunctionPath = fullfile(matlabroot, 'toolbox', 'matlab', 'plottools');
if exist(fullfile(originalFunctionPath, 'addToolbarExplorationButtons.p'), 'file')
currDir = pwd;
Hopefully there aren't too many other function calls that GUIDE sneaks in
I'm also not sure that these function are located in the same folders for all versions of matlab, so it may be necessary to check where they are located with your version using
I also have doubts that this workaround would work with published compiled code...
