Is There A Way to Rename the "app" Component In appdesigner?

30 views (last 30 days)
When you start appdesigner, the canvas window contains a single UIFigure. You can access the UIFigure via syntax like "app.UIFigure..." So the main component I think is the "app" component (or main 'object', I'm not sure I have the correct phrasing). I want to rename the "app" component to "A" such that I would then access the UIFigure via syntax like "A.UIFigure...".
Is it possible to rename "app" to "A" and how is it done.
Thanks in advance.

I called Mathworks technical support and asked them about this. Their response below.
Hello Michael,
I am writing in reference to your Technical Support Case #03859399 regarding naming of the app designer's main component.
Unfortunately, there is no way to change the name of the app's main component.
I will close this case but please let me know if you have any follow-up questions regarding this.
