Hi, I have a question.
I'm writing a scripts that converts data files, after that I'm converting them to exe files using deploytool.
Can I add to them a GUI interface, that would choose a loading and saving directory on hard drive?

Put this in your callback
[filedat,pathdat] = uigetfile('*.dat','Select a Data File');
Then you can import the file and do what you want with it.

@ZK: Use absolute file names in fopen(), when the files are in another folder. fullfile() creates such names. A more general idea: always using absolute filenames avoids problems of unexpected changes of the current folder, e.g. from a GUI or TIMER callback.
UIGETDIR searches for folders, therefore you cannot specify, which kind of files you are searching for. Please explain, what you actually want to do.

Thank You, I understands now. I'm using
A = dir(uigetdir('C:\','Select directory of a files'));
What can I use instead of fullfife() to load only files like example '*.a'?

Sure. You can use something like MAGIC to list your files in a listbox to make it convenient for your users to specify files.
