MATLAB: I create a new array yet matlab says it exeeds limitations!

arrayexceeds matrix dimensions

Hi, Im creating a large data array to place into a table. It looks like this:

The colorgen equation is something that colors the individual square – found herehttp://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/25038-how-to-change-each-cell-color-in-a-uitable But i keep getting the error 'Index exceeds matrix dimensions.' Why would it be doing this? This is the first time this variable is created, and rewriting an array is so simple. Does anyone see a mistake here?

  • Hi, so i figured out my problem. the function colorgen (received from the page above) was being declared in a function that wasn't being called yet. Thus I assume matlab did not know how colorgen was being defined.
    I placed the colorgen function in the opening function of my GUI.
