I created an animation in app designer with a while loop, I want to be able to pause it and also resume it from the point it was stopped.
I have a set of toggle buttons: pause and resume, I can make it stop when I push pause but I can't make it continue with resume button after the break happens in the loop, I would really appreciate any advice on what I'm doing wrong
while time < 50
% Animation
g = get(app.PauseButton,'Value');
h = get(app.ResumeButton,'Value');
if isequal(g, 1)
elseif isequal(h, 1)

If you use break, loop will be exited.

Instead of using break, why don't you try using the sleep command with a parameter of 0.3 to see how the animation looks. That should resolve this.
java.lang.Thread.sleep(duration*1000) % in sec!

Hi Krishan, thanks for taking the time to answer, I replaced the break for the java.lang.Thread.sleep(duration*1000) and I got a message: No method 'java.lang.Thread.sleep' with matching signature found. Is there a sleep command like you mentioned for matlab? I tried with uiwait and uiresume but I'm working on UIAxes and it says "input argument must be of type figure"
