Hello I'm searching for a command in my GUI(with guide) to save the data in a file which is named by user Input. I would like to have a pushbutton and it opens a window where the user just have to insert the name of the file.
See my Code:
function save_as_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
result.data=getappdata(handles.data,'results_data');
result.data_new=getappdata(handles.data,'results_data_new');
save ('','result') %here user should Input Name of file but in my GUI

Hi Valentino,
use uiputfile for this task, something like
[fName, pName] = uiputfile('*.mat');
if fName==0
% user pressed cancel
return
end
save(fullfile(pName, fName), 'result');

EDIT: corrected the typo, thanks

Thank you! it works fine, you just got a typing error in the first line.
[fName, pName] = uiputfile('*.mat');
if fName==0
% user pressed cancel
return
end
save(fullfile(pName, fName), 'result');
