Is it possible to add a custom tab to the Simulink toolstrip ?

6 views (last 30 days)
I would like to know if users are allowed to add a tab to the Simullink toolstrip. In the latest versions of Matlab, classic menu functions are being migrated to the new Simulink toolstrip. I have a custom rolling menu filled with custom functions and would like to migrate its funcitons to a custom tab. Some Add-on/Apps can already do so :
Are users allowed to do the same ?

I would suggest you to go through a previously answered MATLAB Answer which may help you solve your query.

Thank you for your answer,
Yes I saw that question and thought there might be a new solution since it's 8 y/o.
Just to be clear, I am asking if I can define a cusotm toolstirp tab with custom buttons linked to custom callbacks, not a custom tab of existing Matalb/Simulink button.

I have the exact same need and the linked answer does not provide any solution.
When can we expect a properly documented approach to add Tabs to the Simulink Toolstrip ?
Is there an undocumented way ?
The MATLAB toolstrip is already editable, through undocumented APIs unfortunately.

Since R2021b, you can create custom toolstrip and share them with your colleagues. More details in the documentation:
