When packaging a MATLAB® app into a web app, there are functional limitations to consider. Using certain functions may result in an error or unexpected behavior. The list of limitations and unsupported functionality specific to web apps consists of:
Although you can upload and download files from a local system in a
deployed web app using
uiputfile, you cannot download files while an
external application is writing them. Opening a folder selection dialog
box on the client using
uigetdir is not supported.
WindowState property on a figure has no
effect on a web app.
Graphics root object properties:
listfonts. While these function will execute,
they will not return client-side state information. Only server-side
state information is returned.
Tooltips: Data tips for graphics are not supported.
Web Access: Opening a web page using the
function is not supported.
These limitations are in addition to App Designer graphics limitations. For more information, see Displaying Graphics in App Designer (MATLAB).
