Hi, I have plotted 3 buttons in a figure, 1. one pauses the execution of code, 2. second one should resume the execution (i can resume by pressing any keyboard button but i would like to do this with a button) and 3. third one should exit the loop (end the execution of code). 'break' is not working in this context and for now i have changed the value of loop variable so that condition is no longer met, but that only works for 'while' loop (not for 'for' loops), any better method would be welcome.
uicontrol('Style', 'pushbutton', 'String', 'Pause','Position', [10 10 60 30],'Callback', 'pause');
