Design Advance and Basic Calculator, set buttons visible and invisible in MATLAB AppDesigner

This video shows the steps to design a calculator in MATLAB App Designer. In this video it shows how you can design 2 types of calculator in the same GUI (Basic and Advance). You can toggle the visibility of the buttons by setting the visible flag of the uibutton in the App Designer.

We will be glad to hear from you regarding any query, suggestions or appreciations at: programmerworld1990@gmail.com
