Grid layout managers and scrollable containers do not support axes, polaraxes, geoaxes, or charts (such as heatmap, geobubble, or stackedplot) that can be the child of a figure
You can display it on figure not on the axes. But you want to display it on the UIaxes. I would recommend to contact MATLAB support.
cdata = [45 60 32; 43 54 76; 32 94 68; 23 95 58];
xvalues = {'Small','Medium','Large'};
yvalues = {'Green','Red','Blue','Gray'};

Place Uipanel in the position you want heatmap.
h = heatmap(app.Panel1,tbl,xvar,yvar);

Can you try this in console
f = uifigure;
g = uigridlayout(f,[1 1]);
p = uipanel(g);
p.Layout.Row = 1;
p.Layout.Column = 1;

the previous solution is working with a different panel.
I figured out that UI axes is superimposing the HeatMap plot.
I tried to disable the UI axes , but still the blank thing is superimposing Heatmap.
Is there a solution by which I somehow delete/disappear the UI Axes when HeatMap plot is selected?

I have the same problem with the heatmap function and App Designer. So I tried the Accepted Answer but it just does not work on my side.
I added a blank panel and tried different versions of the code such as:
So I don't understand what I did wrong...
heatmap(xvar,yvar,tbl) works fine outside of the App Designer.
Thanks in advance for any help!

If you can't update then you may have to pop up a separate figure window and display the heatmap separately.
