How to disable title of ButtonGroup

6 views (last 30 days)
I have an app I've created using App Designer. Included is a Button Group that I would like to Enable and Disable with a checkbox. So far this is pretty straightforward. I can disable everything in the ButtonGroup using set(app.ButtonGroup.children,'enable','off'); However, this disables everything except for the title of the button group. This results in a grayed out box with a black font title. How can I disable the title as well, or at least change the font color so it looks disabled?
It's worth noting that this machine doesn't have the latest version, so I can't use ButtonGroup.Enable

Hi David,
You can change the ForegroundColor property of the ButtonGroup to make it appear as disabled.
Hope this helps!

That's perfect, thanks! Any idea what color the default disabled text is? I tried [0.7 0.7 0.7] which is close enough to not be noticeably different, but I'd rather be exact if possibly.
