I have a GUI which has START and STOP buttons with functions below. START button starts a live camera stream. However, I cannot break the loop by pushing to STOP button. How can I stop the camera acquisition? It seems like the STOP button is ignored until the WHILE loop ends. The STOP button is not read during the loop process.
I'd be grateful to hear your suggestions to make the STOP button working.
function pushbutton1_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
handles = guidata(hObject);
stop_pressed = get(handles.pushbutton2, 'Value');
disp('START LIVE STREAM button pressed')
% set camera settings:
vid = cameraSetup();
max_frame_no = 10000;
frame_no = 1;
while (frame_no < max_frame_no)
if stop_pressed == 1
img = getsnapshot(vid);
frame_no = frame_no + 1;
function pushbutton2_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
The attached files give an example of a start-stop GUI which works relatively simply. Don't use global variables to pass data around though - they may or may not be contributing to the problem here, but they bring so many problems they are really not worth it and are pretty much never a good solution to any problem.
