How to create a dialogbox with two or more input fields BESIDES EACH OTHER?

24 views (last 30 days)
INTRO: Hi, I wrote the script below to make a video with images stored in a folder.
clear all; close all;
prompt = {'ENTER THE PATH:','ENTER THE VIDEO NAME:','ENTER THE NUMBER:','ENTER THE PLAYBACK RATE:'};
dlg_title = 'MAKE VIDEO';
num_lines = 1;
def = {'C:\Users\EMERSON\Desktop\test','test','10','5'};
answer = inputdlg(prompt,dlg_title,num_lines,def);
oldFolder = cd (answer{1,1});
writerObj = VideoWriter('answer{2,1}');
NUMBER_OF_FRAMES = str2num(answer{3,1});
FRAME_RATE = str2num(answer{4,1});
writerObj.FrameRate = FRAME_RATE;
open(writerObj);
for k = 1 :1: NUMBER_OF_FRAMES
filename = sprintf('%d.bmp', k);
thisimage = imread(filename);
writeVideo(writerObj, thisimage);
end
close(writerObj);
mkdir('answer{2,1}');
cd(oldFolder);
As you can see, the input dialog has 4 lines BELOW each other to enter the variables.
QUESTION-1: I would like to have TWO input lines BESIDES instead of BELOW each other. The dialogbox should look like below:
ENTER THE PATH ENTER THE VIDEO NAME
input input
ENTER THE NUMBER ENTER THE PLAYBACK RATE
input input
QUESTION-2: The name of the video is not being used as a string. It saves as answer{2,1}.avi instead of test.avi.
QUESTION-3: Similar to above, I want to create a new folder using the name of the file as the name of the new folder. But it creates a folder named answer{2,1} instead of test.
So I wonder if someone could help me to correct the lines above to do what I want.
Thanks in advance for your help

Hi, questions 2 and 3 are solved by:
FILENAME=strcat(answer{2,1});
writerObj=VideoWriter(FILENAME);
mkdir(FILENAME);
Now only question 1 is pending

inputdlg() is not designed to be able to show prompts beside each other. You would have to make a copy of it and edit the copy to do what you wanted.
