How to create a second command window in my GUI?

2 views (last 30 days)
I have a GUI currently showing a Welcome Screen and I have a button showing "Press button to start". However when user presses the button, i want a second window showing another screen for the user to use. So how do i create a second command window?
I saw one way in some forums is that we create a second app/GUI, then they call back the first app's command. But I am not sure if this is possible?

Why burden the user with a useless screen they have to click on? Why not just start immediately? Why have an initial screen that they just have to immediately dismiss to get to the main program?
Anyway, you can just call your second GUI by name, in code, after they click the button.

Just let the main GUI (with welcome message and push button) to launch another MATLAB session
system('matlab -r ...')
with -r option of an mfile that runs whatever task to perform. There you have a second command window.
