Hi! Is it possible for the inputdlg box to respond to the enter button instead of clicking at the ok button? I've got help to fix it when the program is executed in matlab, I'd like to be able to use the enter button when the file is converted to exe file. BR Johan

I guess you tried to compile it? Usually the compiled version should behave like the "uncompiled" version ...

I thought so too, unfortunately I was wrong:/

Create a copy of "inputdlg.m" e.g. as "inputdlg2.m". Search for "uicontrol(EditHandle(1))". Add this line after the following END:
Now the OK button is selected initially and hitting ENTER activates it. If the inputdlg2 files is created in a user folder (recommended!) insert the files MATLABROOT\toolbox\matlab\uitools\private\getnicedialoglocation.m and \private\setdefaultbutton.m also in inputdlg2.m.
Most likely a completely new created dialog file would be much smaller.

@Johan: I assume this depends on the initial values set by the input arguments. Please post the code you are calling INPUTDLG with.

timelength=inputdlg('Hur länge vill du köra programmet? [min]')

Please read "help inputdlg". If you call INPUTDLG without default answers, the empty string is replied and STR2DOUBLE converts it to NaN. Without defining a default answer, Matlab has no chance to know, that a "1" is required.
Use this to define a default value:
inputdlg('question', 'dialog name', 1, {'1'})
