> The print command has a '-noui' option that might be useful for you. It will hide the the uicontrols before printing and then restore them after. I can't tell from your post whether grafico_i is the actual figure on not (print only works with figures), but if it is you can try calling

Thanks for your answer!

I solved the problem making a figure..then the window to save appears automatically (I used saveas function but it also could be done using print) and as the user saves the image, the figure closes. That's not perfect, but result. I didn't find a way so I could save the image without opening it outside of the GUI..

Even I did what you told me, I would have to open a figure to save the I prefer the way I did, which doesn't envolve hidding the gui buttons...

Again, thanks a lot,
