How is DefaultFigurePosition set for apps?

9 views (last 30 days)
I have set my DefaultFigurePosition to a particular setting. Ordinary plot figure windows obey the setting, opening in the desired location. However, apps (both from GUIDE and appDesigner) open at a different location. Where is the default figure position of app figure windows controlled from?

Possible workaround for this would be by using “Component Browser” to set the “Position” parameters for “app.UIFigure”.
Additionally, you can also set the position using
set (app_instance.UIFigure , 'Position', [20, 20, 640, 480]);
All the above methods will set the “position” for the current App only.
Hope this helps.

Thanks. Any idea what to do for GUIDE apps?
I tried putting,
in the OpeningFcn, but it seems to get overriden by gui_mainfcn.
