I want to use the Menu Bar in Matlab App Designer as a Prefrence Tab, where multiple options can be checked/unchecked without closing the menu.
The default callback seems to always close the Menu when selecting any option.
f = uifigure();
supM = uimenu(f,'Text', 'SuperMenu 1');
subM_1 = uimenu(supM, 'Text', 'SubMenu 1'); % Option 1
subM_2 = uimenu(supM, 'Text', 'SubMenu 2'); % Option 2
Now i know how to toggle the checked option of the uimenu elements on 'Selecting' the respective element, but I do not know of any method to keep the SupMenu open when selecting one of the SubMenu elements.

I have also found this default beahvior frustrating but I do not know a way to keep the menu open after making a selection. I suggest submitting an enhancement request to tech supporting using the link below.

Creative workaround. I suppose the only reason to move the checkbox is to not see it in Design View within AppDesigner.
You may want to look into using tabs
