How to activate drop down menus by clicking instead of hovering

8 views (last 30 days)
Hi guys,
i just started creating a complex GUI and i am not that experienced yet. What i would like to have is a menu bar that contains dropdown menus as well as simple buttons... So for example the Tab 'Model' consists of a dropdown menue whereas the Tab 'Help' doesnt offer any other options. So Clicking help should immediately activate a callback whereas clicking 'Model' shall open the dropdown menu for further choices to be can i realize this??? so far i created this Surface below with the GUIDE environment that automatically implements hovering over the tabs insteand of clicking...
I would be very glad for your help:) Best regards, John

You forgot to attach your .fig and .m files with the paper clip icon. As of now, no one can try anything with your code.

Hi Image Analyst,
so here is my hole GUI attached. It works nice apart from the fact that the menu does behave as described above! i dont know how to solve this issue..would be quite important to have a functioning menu somehow... the Try1_subgui.m ist a GUI that is called when the menu-button settings in Try1.m is activated. It is just the basic so far because i just startet with getting familiar with GUI.
However, every menu that i create with GUIDE behaves this way...this is definately not intended!! i dont know how to fix it or what other options i do have to create a functioning menu-bar.
Best regards, john
