how to write a struct to a ui table in appdesigner
Edited: Ankit on 9 Sep 2022
You can follow following steps:
S.Name = ["Chang";"Brown";"Ruiz"];
S.Smoker = ["Y";"N";"Y"];
S.SystolicBP = [124;122;130];
S.DiastolicBP = [93;80;92];
fields = fieldnames(S)';
T = struct2table(S); % converting struct to table
app.UITable.Data = T;
app.UITable.ColumnName = fields;
What is your use case? In case if structure is also a structure you can use struct2table. In this case you need to first convert it cell (struct2cell) and then to table using cell2table.
But my question is do you want to show the table completely - this is difficult. You can extract the data and display it on table.

structDef = struct("field1",0,"field2",0); % definition
defaultTbl = repmat(struct2table(structDef),10,1); % default empty 10row table
app.UITable.Data = defaultTbl; % copy table to uitable Data property
app.UITable.ColumnName = tbl.Properties.VariableNames; % copy variable names(table) to column names(uitable)
data1 = structDef; % empty struct copy
data1.field1 = 333; % example field data
data1.field2 = 666;
targetRow = 3;
app.UITable.Data(targetRow,:) = struct2table(data1); % write struct data to table row
Another example to show the diffs between table and uitable, because there's only a struct2table() function.
