Matlab - I stuck with a sand-clock after the opened window have been shut down.

I wrote an application with Matlab that opens a window, display things, and wait the user to press some push-buttons, as a result of one push-button the application than opens a new window
something like :

h = newApp(Data) ;
waitfor(h) ;
% new display new things, and wait for more push-buttons...

when I open the newApp window, the cursor is looking like a sand-clock while inside the oldApp window, but it stays as sand-clock and does not changed back to arrow when I close the newApp window.

can any one help me with that one ?

The cursor doesn't automatically change to an hourglass when you open a new matlab window, so you should be able to identify some code somewhere that is specifically changing your cursor, and then find out why it is not getting changed back on window close.

Failing this, if you post sufficient m-code to replicate your problem, I'll find the answer for you.

Hi gordon
I rechecked the code I've called, and found the following command
oldFigure = watchon ;

I couldn't find any help on that command.

I've used watchoff, after closing the new figure, and the hourglass cursor was back to the regular pointer.

Thanks again
