Dear all,
I want to add a keyboard short cut to a menu. Is that possible?
My sample code as follows:
again = true;
CellCount = 0;
while again && CellCount < 500
choice = menu('Select the Image You Want.', ...
if choice ==1;
figure, imshow('cameraman.tif');
% or press a in the keyboard
if choice ==2;
figure, imshow('circles.png');
% or press b in the keyboard
if choice ==3;
figure, imshow('coins.png');
% or press c in the keyboard
Is there a way to make such a keyboard shortcut?
Any help will be appreciated.

If you are using a uimenu you can, but 'menu' that you are using is basically a dialog box and it is not recommended to use (in R2016b at least) with 'dialog' recommended instead.
If you write your own menu in GUIDE or programmatically then you can support any keyboard shortcuts you want, but the built in dialog or menu are very simplistic so don't support this option.
