How to enable Data Tips in App.Designer in r2019b

21 views (last 30 days)
I'm trying to include datacursor on my ui.axes in App.Designer but it just never shows.
I'm using Matlab R2019b Update4.
This is how it looks:
Do any of you have an idea how to fix this?
Thanks in advance!

Did they add this funcionality in R2019b? Because as of version R2019a, Matlab App Designer UIFigures did not support mouse interactions. I recall they wanted to add it in an upcoming release, check in "Graphics support for App Designer" help page or something alike unless you are sure.

In R2019b, data cursor mode is 'on' by default.
As I can see from the image attached that any plot is not there in the figure.
First plot something and then click on the curve, you can see the data at that point.

Hi Nishant,
I am having a little similar but a different issue. I can add a new datatip to my image displayed on a MATLAB app. But I am unable to place multiple datatips, which is a requirement for my app. Usually on a MATLAB figure, I can simply place as many datatips I want, but in the AppDesigner environment, I can only place one datatip at max. Can you please help me figure out how to place multiple datatips? Thank you.
