Hello! I am struggling to figure this out for 3 days.. What I am wondering is this. I have a main program and many subprograms. And I want to open subprogram by selecting name of the subprogram from list box and clicking open button. this is my code: packet_list=cellstr(get(handles.listbox1,'String')); temp1=packet_list{get(handles.listbox1, 'Value')}; figure(temp1); please save me from this deep swamp :) Have a nice day.

I cannot guess, what "opening a subprogram" means. What is the contents of the list stored in listbox1? What do you assume as result of "figure(temp1)" and what do you get? Perhaps you want "feval(temp1)"?
