Building a GUI to read, modify and write an Excel file. 1/4 2

Posted by Doug Hull,

This is the first in a series of videos that will go through the process of planing and implementation of a simple GUI. Realistically, I would not plan out a GUI this simple, but the idea is to show what my planning process is on a simple example. The purpose of this GUI is to:
  1. Select an Excel file and read it into the MATLAB workspace
  2. Modify the data that came from the file. In this case by multiplying by a scalar
  3. Write the modified data into an Excel file with a name derived from the original filename
The first video is all about the planning of the GUI.

The second video creates the low-level functions needed to implement the functionality

The third video creates a single m-file that runs the low-level functions

The final video implements the simple GUI discussed here, calling the functions created above.

Doug, The video link is mixed up with last week's video, but only in the main blog page If you first go to you get the correct video.

Naor, Thank you for pointing this out. I have noticed this only occurs for Internet explorer. We are investigating a solution. Thanks, Doug
