I am trying to add kind of a context menu after LEFT pushing a button on a specific tab of my app, but it seems not to be allowed. Suggestion for a workaround?
I tried uicontextmenu and this link hint (and here) but nothing happens when I push the botton:
function ButtonAddPlotPushed(app, event)
cm = uicontextmenu(app.UIFigure); %
m1 = uimenu(cm,'Text','Menu1');
m2 = uimenu(cm,'Text','Menu2');
m3 = uimenu(cm,'Text','Menu3');
pos = app.ButtonAddPlot.Position(1:2)
My GUI is something like this:
I need something like this:
I can't use a toolbar instead, because I need it just below the "Output Visualization" tab, while the toolbar is added on the top of the app:

Is there a way to open the DROP DOWN menu by code? It would be enough to open it when clicking on the image as a callback, but I can't find a way

You could try setting up 'HitTest' property of the Image to 'off' that way your UI could register its clicks and hopefully you could call the contextmenu.

Thank you for your answer! How can I implement this solution in the app design? I am not able to find the HIT TEST property on the Inspector or elsewhere, I was looking for something like that. How do I set it?

This work for me, hope it helps.
properties (Access = private)
cm % Description
function startupFcn(app)
% Create ContextMenu = uicontextmenu(app.UIFigure);
% Create Menu1 = uimenu(; = 'menu1';
% Create Menu2 = uimenu(; = 'menu2';
function ButtonPushed(app, event)
open( ,event.Source.Position([1 2]))
