Generate a triangle from a set of specified set variables.

3 views (last 30 days)
I need to generate a triangle that will be able to be user controlled with input length of base in pixels and both base angles in degrees.
sides = 3;
t = (1/(2*sides):1/(sides):1)*2*pi-pi/3;
x = x_size*sin(t);
y = x_size*cos(t);
axis square;
this is the code I used.

See this snippet. Adapt as you see fit:
% Ask user for two floating point numbers.
defaultValue = {'45.67', '18.91'};
titleBar = 'Enter a value';
userPrompt = {'Enter Angle 1 : ', 'Enter Angle 2: '};
caUserInput = inputdlg(userPrompt, titleBar, 1, defaultValue);
if isempty(caUserInput),return,end; % Bail out if they clicked Cancel.
% Convert to floating point from string.
usersValue1 = str2double(caUserInput{1})
usersValue2 = str2double(caUserInput{2})
% Check for a valid number.
if isnan(usersValue1)
% They didn't enter a number.
% They clicked Cancel, or entered a character, symbols, or something else not allowed.
% Convert the default from a string and stick that into usersValue1.
usersValue1 = str2double(defaultValue{1});
message = sprintf('I said it had to be a number.\nI will use %.2f and continue.', usersValue1);

Why don't you have a user interface where you let the user control the width with a slider? See this framework. Put your code in the slider callback. First get the slider value, then use it in the rest of your code that draws the triangle.

Since the representation doesn't require that.I just need a code that can be user controlled to input base and two base angles to generate the triangle thats it
