Share Data in Multiwindow Apps

This example shows how to pass data from one app to another. This multiwindow app consists of a main app that calls a dialog box app with input arguments. The dialog box displays a set of options for modifying aspects of the main app. When the user closes it, the dialog box sends their selections back to the main app.

This example demonstrates the following app building tasks:

  • Calling an app with input arguments

  • Calling an app with a return argument that is the app object

  • Passing values to an app by calling a public function in the app

  • Writing CloseRequestFcn callbacks to perform maintenance tasks when each app closes
