MATLAB: How to restore the original content of an edit control

MATLABmatlab gui

  • When I start editing a value in an edit control and change my mind, is there a way to restore the original content? Neither Esc nor Ctrl+Z seems to work.
  • When I submit the edited value to a callback and the callback figures out that the content is invalid, is there a way to restore the original valid content (other than fiddling with UserData)?

  • No, the Uicontrol have no "memory". If you want to restore the content, you need to save the content before the potential modification, and then set() it back into place.
