How can i set up my GUI pushback button to call my application created in app designer (XXX.mlapp)?
I am trying to use a push button to call my app and i cant seem to get it to work.
% --- Executes on button press in pushbutton1.
function pushbutton1_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
If someone can show the exact code to call the application that i would be great. I have read mutiple threads and have been getting nothing but errors.

You should be able to run it just using its name, the same as you would from command line

I recommend using MATLAB appdesigner to create GUIs with interactivity.
The first thing to do would be to include the target application in the MATLAB path.
You can execute any application on the MATLAB search path using the "!" expression before its name. Check the first answer to the question on the MATLAB answers page below:
Next create a GUI using MATLAB appdesigner and drag and drop a "button" element on the canvas. Add a callback function to the button element's on press event and include the command "!<name of application>" in it. This will open the application every time you press the "button" element. Refer to the following documents for more information.
