following these two discussions:
I decided to try and create my own graphic component. I essentially want it to be a draggable picture with a title.
I tried to follow the instructions here
but encountered some problems.
my first problem is it needs to have something equivalent to a "buttonupfunction" and a "buttondownfunction", and I am not sure how to do this. I am pretty sure it can be done because uiknobs have similar properties.
google has failed me. will be thankful for any assistance

Are you talking of a figure or uifigure? Instead of a dragable image it is much easier to use a dragable axes, which displays an image.
"but encountered some problems" - then please post the code and explain the problems.
