How do I call another .m file to run some calculations

3 views (last 30 days)
I'm using app designer and I need to call another .m file to run some calculations for me. The .m file I will be calling requires two inputs (x and y) and it should send back to outputs (xhat and yhat). Could someone please provide some code on how to do this? Thanks

Sorry, I'm a bit lost (new to matlab). Could you write out how it should look? Everything I'm trying with the link is still giving an error

In app designer somewhere when you want to call your function, make sure you have your data ready, and the function is on your path (place it in the same folder as your app).
% Some Callbacks and code later, you come up with x & y
x = [1:5]
y = [1:5]
[xhat, yhat] = MyOutsideFunction(x,y)
In a seperate .m file, you have your function, but I'll make a dummy function
function [xhat, yhat] = MyOutsideFunction(x,y)
xhat = x * 100;
yhat = y * 100
end % function end
