How to move or relocate the figure window and message box?

76 views (last 30 days)
Hi,
I have 3 windows
1) Area Information
2) figure 1 with histogram information
3) Input Dialogbox
Here is the snapshot of that. My trouble is that, I couldn't able to move the 1 and 2 windows. I could able to move only window 3.
This is the code I used:
%code for Window1
regionData=regionprops(imageThresh,'basic');
minArea=min([regionData.Area]);
maxArea=max([regionData.Area]);
message=sprintf('Minimum Area = %d \n\nMaximum Area = %d',minArea,maxArea);
h=msgbox(message, 'Area Information' );
set(h,'Position',[350 499 150 70])
% code for window2
figure('name',sprintf('Histogram Information - %s',baseFileName),'NumberTitle','off');
hist([regionData.Area],20);
%code for window 3
prompt = {'Enter Minimum pixel area(default value is 2) - ',...
'Enter Maximum pixel area(default value is 100) -'};
dlg_title = 'Max/Min Pixel Area Selection';
num_lines = 1;
def = {'2','100'};
options.Resize='on';
answer=inputdlg(prompt,dlg_title,num_lines,def,options);
close;
Is there any method such that I can move all the 3 windows. I means to relocate the windows on the screen using the mouse cursor.
Thanks in advance.

The reason you can only move window 3 is because by default an inputdlg is Modal (i.e. you cant access any other GUI until that one closes.
To change that add the following to your options struct:
options.WindowStyle = 'normal';
answer=inputdlg(prompt,dlg_title,num_lines,def,options);
