Fit buttons to full screen

I want to visualize an interface made in app designer but when I maximize the interface to see it full screen the buttons do not fit and I do not know how to solve it.

In App Designer, set the buttons' Units property to 'Normalized' instead of 'Pixels' (or whatever other value they currently have).

Controls created via App Designer (i.e. web-based) do not have the Units property. Panels do have this control, but when you try to set their Units to normalized Matlab issues an error. In short, App Designer [still] does not support normalized units.
As a workaround [until MathWorks enabled true normalized units], you can set a custom app.UIFigure.SizeChangedFcn callback to compute and update the button's position/size whenever the figure is resized. It's ugly but it should work.
Alternatively, use the standard (non-web-based) Matlab GUI, using either GUIDE and/or programmatic functions (figure, uicontrol, uipanel etc.). The buttons and panels created with uicontrol and uipanel (respectively) have true normalized units.
