uitabgroup

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

Syntax

h = uitabgroup()

h = uitabgroup(property, value, ...)

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

Inputs

parent
Handle of a container object, which could be a figure, frame, uipanel, or uibuttongroup.
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 in all tabs. Valid values are 'regular'(default) and 'italic'.
Type: string
'fontname'
Specifies the name of the displayed font in all tabs.
Type: string
'fontsize'
Specifies the size of the displayed font in all tabs.
Type: scalar
'fontweight'
Specifies the weight of the displayed font in all tabs. Valid values are 'normal'(default) and 'bold'.
Type: string
'parent'
Specifies the parent.
Type: scalar
'position'
Position and size of h. Value is specified as a vector of form: [left top width height]. If 'units' has a value of 'normalized', values must be between 0 to 1.
Type: vector
'selectedtab'
Handle of the uitab child that needs to be selected. By default, the last tab added is selected.
Type: scalar
'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 uitabgroup created.

Example

Create 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)

% Keeps the first tab created as the selected tab
set(h, 'selectedtab', tab1);

% 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]);
