# uitab

Creates a tab in a tabbed frame for interactive graphical control objects in a figure.

## Syntax

h = uitab(parent)

h = uitab(parent, property, value, ...)

## Inputs

parent
Handle of a container object, which is a uitabgroup.
Type: double | integer
property, value
'createfcn'
Function that is triggered when h is created. If value is a function handle, it must be a function that takes at least two arguments. The first argument is the handle of the uicontrol. The second argument is the event data to the uicontrol, which is ignored for createfcn. If value is a string, it must represent a function handle or a function name. If value is a cell, it must contain the function name/function handle in the first cell element and parameters to pass to callback function in the additional elements. After it is executed, createfcn cannot be interrupted.
Type: cell | functionhandle | string
'deletefcn'
Function that is triggered when h is deleted. If value is a function handle, it must be a function that takes at least two arguments. The first argument is the handle of the uicontrol. The second argument is the event data to the uicontrol, which is ignored for createfcn. If value is a string, it must represent a function handle or a function name. If value is a cell, it must contain the function name/function handle in the first cell element and parameters to pass to callback function in the additional elements. After it is executed, createfcn cannot be interrupted.
Type: cell | functionhandle | string
'enable'
Specifies if h is enabled. Valid values are 'on'(default) and 'off'.
Type: string
'fontangle'
Specifies the angle of the displayed font; applies to all tabs in this group. Valid values are 'regular'(default) and 'italic'.
Type: string
'fontname'
Specifies the name of the displayed font; applies to all tabs in this group.
Type: string
'fontsize'
Specifies the size of the displayed font; applies to all tabs in this group.
Type: scalar
'fontweight'
Specifies the weight of the displayed font; applies to all tabs in this group. Valid values are 'normal'(default) and 'bold'.
Type: string
'iconpath'
Path to the icon to be displayed next to uitab name.
Type: string
'parent'
Specifies the parent (uitabgroup).
Type: scalar
'position'
Position and size of h. Value is specified as a vector of the form:
[left top width height].
If 'units' has a value of 'normalized', values must be between 0 to 1.
Type: vector
'title'
Text to be displayed on h.
Type: string
'tag'
User-defined string to tag graphical control objects.
Type: string
'units'
Specifies units of measurement. Valid values are 'pixels'(default) and 'normalized'.
'pixel'
Indicates that h has a fixed size and position specified by 'position'.
'normalized'
Indicates that h is resized if parent is resized.
Type: string
'userdata'
User-defined numerical data.
Type: complex | mtx | scalar
'visible'
Specifies if h is visible. Valid values are 'on'(default) and 'off'.
Type: string

## Outputs

h
Handle of the uitab created.

## Example

Creates a tabbed frame, with tabs containing uicontrol elements:
% Creates a tab group in the current figure
h = uitabgroup(gcf())

% Creates individual tabs
tab1 = uitab(h, 'title', 'My tab 1')
tab2 = uitab(h)

% Creates uicontrol elements in individual tabs
edithandle = uicontrol(tab1,'style','edit','string','169','units','normalized','position',[0.1 0.15 0.15 0.15]);

lst10 = uicontrol(tab2, 'Style','listbox','units','normalized', ...
'String',{'data1','data2','data3','data4','data5','data6','data7'},'max',3,'min',0,'value',[2,3],
'visible', 'on', 'units','normalized','position',[0.1 0.1 0.15 0.15]);
