ending a GUI by exiting it, and making an exe file application from it-

alex on 12 Oct 2012
as in the title, I have 2 questions-
1. I've finished my GUI with an Exit pushbutton, and in the callback function I made-
function Exit_callback(~,~)
close fh;% fh=figure name
but it doesnt work, so how can I end my gui with an exit+close the window?
2. I've seen the posibility of making an exe file from a gui- how do I do that?,
and does it only possible for .fig files, because my GUI is just an .m file?

1) Use delete() instead.
% No, don't do this:
close fh;% fh=figure name
% Yes, do this:
delete(fh); % fh = figure handle, not name.
And if you're using GUIDE, use the figure "tag" not the figure "name" like you said.
delete(handles.figMainWindow); % figMainWindow is the "tag" property.
2) You need the compiler toolbox. http://www.mathworks.com/products/compiler/ It will work for a plain m-file with no GUI. You can send your results to the console window or to a disk file (e.g. Excel workbook).
