I used to do this by using:
h = uicontrol(...
j = findjobj(h);
je = j.getComponent(0).getComponent(0);
Now I have Matlab 2015a and this is not working. Previously I downloaded findjobj from the exchange. I can no longer do this do to policy restrictions at work.
The situation I have is a figure that is displaying an edit uicontrol to act as a log for an application. I want the editbox to always show the last line. How can I do this? Is there a better control to use or a way to set the slider position to the end?
