How can I use input() in a standalone Executable?

15 views (last 30 days)
Hi,
does anyone has experience with the input() function in a standalone executable under windows 7 64 bit. i make a example to show my problem
function test
if isdeployed
disp(isdeployed)
end
inp=input('EIngabe','s');
disp(inp)
end
If i compile this function with the deploytool and run it under windows the program stops because of the unknown variable "Eingabe". I think the command shell interprets the input as a new variable, that is unknown. Could anyone give me an advice, how to do user input while the exe is running?
thanks a lot.
Christof

I guess this is because input needs the command window. Loren explained how input behaves in deployed programs. http://blogs.mathworks.com/loren/2008/09/17/managing-non-deployable-functions-in-a-compiled-application/
It's probably best to use an inputdlg instead.

Hi Arthur,
thanks for your advice to use inputdlg. That works very good. If i use the command window (start through cmd) an run the test-application it works to. Now i make a more complicatet example (please see below)
function test
if isdeployed
disp(isdeployed)
end
test1=input('EIngabe: ','s');
data=rand(10,1).*rand(10,1);
if strcmp(test1,'j')
h=figure;
plot(data)
end
end
After compilation and running in the command window i never go in the if structure. The error tells me, that 'j' is an unknown command. Why does the command window interprets the output from input() as an command?
Kind regards Christof
