How Can I Save Some Fields of a Struct Using uisave Function?

7 views (last 30 days)
I want to save some fields of a struct using uisave function. The problem is uisave doesn’t have the options that save function provides.
How can I save some fields of a struct using uisave function? If not possible, what is the alternate solution?

How do you want to specify the fields? What about using the save function directly?

Simply use uiputfile instead of uisave then use the returned path with save. It's only three more lines of code.
[filename, filepath] = uiputfile({'*.mat', 'MAT-files (*.mat)'}, 'Save Workspace Variable', 'matlab.mat');
if ischar(filename)
save(fullfile(filepath, filename), '-struct', 'somestructvariable');
edit: you can actually look at the code of uiputfile (simply use edit uiputfile). You'll see it's more or less what I've written.
