Symbols <, > and & are displayed in tooltip in Appdesigner as &lt;, &gt; and &amp;
Is the way to display those symbols correctly? See the test code below.
classdef test_app1 < matlab.apps.AppBase
% Properties that correspond to app components
properties (Access = public)
UIFigure matlab.ui.Figure
EditFieldLabel matlab.ui.control.Label
EditField matlab.ui.control.NumericEditField
end
% Component initialization
methods (Access = private)
% Create UIFigure and components
function createComponents(app)
% Create UIFigure and hide until all components are created
app.UIFigure = uifigure('Visible', 'off');
app.UIFigure.Position = [100 100 640 480];
app.UIFigure.Name = 'MATLAB App';
% Create EditFieldLabel
app.EditFieldLabel = uilabel(app.UIFigure);
app.EditFieldLabel.HorizontalAlignment = 'right';
app.EditFieldLabel.Position = [209 282 56 22];
app.EditFieldLabel.Text = 'Edit Field';
% Create EditField
app.EditField = uieditfield(app.UIFigure, 'numeric');
app.EditField.Tooltip = {'if a>b and c<d, then A&b are real'};
app.EditField.Position = [280 282 100 22];
% Show the figure after all components are created
app.UIFigure.Visible = 'on';
end
end
% App creation and deletion
methods (Access = public)
% Construct app
function app = test_app1
% Create UIFigure and components
createComponents(app)
% Register the app with App Designer
registerApp(app, app.UIFigure)
if nargout == 0
clear app
end
end
% Code that executes before app deletion
function delete(app)
% Delete UIFigure when app is deleted
delete(app.UIFigure)
end
end
end

I am trying the same code but for me, it is showing Special character only, not as &lt;, &gt; and &amp.
function createComponents(app)
% Create UIFigure and hide until all components are created
app.UIFigure = uifigure('Visible', 'off');
app.UIFigure.Colormap = [0.2431 0.149 0.6588;0.2431 0.1529 0.6745;0.2471 0.1569 0.6863;0.2471 0.1608 0.698;0.251 0.1647 0.7059;0.251 0.1686 0.7176;0.2549 0.1725 0.7294;0.2549 0.1765 0.7412;0.2588

can you please check again and if it's not showing Special character to you please share the screenshot of the character you are getting.

Can it be because OS on my laptop is still Win 7?
