How to run a for loop one at a time with each button click?

15 views (last 30 days)
I have a for loop within a uicontrol-defined button. The for loop has to run 3 times, however it runs all the three loops together when the button is pushed once. How can I run the loop one at a time with every button click?
I have the chunk of code pasted here
if buttonA.Value==1
for i=1:3
set(messaget1g1,'String',sprintf('Collect $%d and pay a fine of $%d',...
datat1g1.Button_Pressed(i)='A'; %Data collection but need for loop
datat1g1.Earned(i)=gettrialone(r1(i)); %Data collection but need for loop
datat1g1.Fee(i)=paytrialone(r2(i)); %Data collection but need for loop

At the end of your "for" loop, add a "while" loop that looks for the button value.
if i < 3 (you don't want it to pause the last time)
while ~button_status
(get button_status) % I don't know the exact commands for this
This will cause it to loop indefinitely until the button is pressed.
Make sure that the button status is reset inside the for loop.

Maybe I interpreted your answer wrong but it is breaking the code (no error popping up but the code is not progressing).
