Plot in UIAxes and demo of slider, knob and Gauge in App Designer in MATLAB

This video shows how to plot a voltage-current-resistance AC current equation in the MATLAB’ App Designer tool.

This video use the Slider, Knob, Gauge and UI Axes to demonstrate the plotting of the equation.

  1. I precisely wished to thank you very much once more. I am not sure the things that I would have created in the absence of the type of creative ideas provided by you over such a area of interest. Previously it was a very depressing circumstance in my view, but seeing a new well-written tactic you dealt with the issue took me to cry with joy. I’m happy for your guidance and in addition sincerely hope you find out what a great job you are accomplishing instructing many others with the aid of your webpage. I am certain you’ve never got to know all of us.
