How to steer uiprogressdlg from external function

I am building an App wit appdesigner in which a rather complex function is called. The function is at the moment not within the app. Due to its complexity, it is a standalone function file. First of all, its 1500 lines of code would make the app code extremely long. Furthermore, working within the normal matlab interface enables me much more do to optimisations and tests on the function. Within the app it is much more difficult to look at intermediate values etc.
Within the function, I use the waitbar a lot to show progress through all the different calculation steps (as calculations can take multiple hours). Now for the app, I assume it is best to use uiprogressdlg for that purpose. In the end, this app must be deployed standalone to non-Matlab users.
However, I don't seem able to steer the uiprogressdlg from the external function. Is there a way to do this? Or is my only option to integrate the function fully within the app?
