I have started using online Matlab R2020b. I am having difficulty selecting multiple files using uigetfile. I simply try the code from uigetfile help:
[file,path] = uigetfile('*.m','Select One or More Files','MultiSelect', 'on');
But I then get the error:
Index exceeds the number of array elements (0).
Error in matlab.ui.internal.dialog.FileChooser/updateFromDialog (line 215)
obj.PathName = filepaths{1};
Error in matlab.ui.internal.dialog.FileChooser/prepareDialog/localupdate (line 95)
I can successfully select a single file without the multiselect option. Can anyone help me solve this?
I am trying to get some old 2010b code working in online R2020b but cannot work out why this is a problem.

Hi Joan
This is a bug in MATLAB Online. Our developers are aware of it and are working on fixing it for a future MATLAB Online release.
Currently we do not have a workaround.
