Reorder rows of UITable in app designer

32 views (last 30 days)
Guys I need help, if possibile, about what I'm asking in title.
I have an UITable in app designer which contains 5 rows (and it just has 2 columns). What I need to do is change the order of rows if necessary. For example, I'd need to exchange row 1 with row 4, so that each one take the place of the other row. All this when my app is running. I mean, I launch the app created with app designer and which displays the table I mentioned and while it's running I change the rows as said before (if necessary).
I have looked for infos surfing on web, but I haven't found any infos about this.

Hi Massimo. It is my understanding that you have created a UITable in MATLAB App Designer and you would like to swap a specified pair of rows dynamically while the app is running. Here is how you can achieve it.
% store row-1 and row-4 data in variables
row_1 = app.UITable.Data(1,:);
row_4 = app.UITable.Data(4,:);
% swap the rows 1 and 4
app.UITable.Data(1,:) = row_4;
app.UITable.Data(4,:) = row_1;
Here are a few helpful resources related to UITable in MATLAB App Designer.
