I am trying to create an event programmatically in App Designer, like a "PushedButton" or a "ValueChanged". Is it possible? I know that I can call the callback function directly, without passing the "event" argument, but I wish I could use notify function.
notify(app.myButton, 'ButtonPushed')
% Error using matlab.ui.control.Button/notify
% Cannot notify listeners of event 'ButtonPushed' in class 'matlab.ui.control.Button'.

Hey @Adam Danz, in a big project I prefer to create just one callback for several buttons (of the same family), using event.Source. If a create a "shortcut" for one of those buttons (an image in a mosaic, for example), I wish I could create an event programmatically.
function ButtonsPushedCallback(app, event)
switch event.Source
case app.Button1; % Execution code related to Button1
case app.Button2; % Execution code related to Button2
case app.Button3; % Execution code related to Button3
case app.Button4; % Execution code related to Button4
function Button1ShortcutCallback(app, event)
notify(app.Button1, 'ButtonPushed')

For push buttons, the event is a ButtonPushedData object with properties Source (button handle) and EventName ('ButtonPushed'). Your switch/case matches the Source with known button handles.
From what I understand, you want to directly call the ButtonsPushedCallback function and provide a known button handle so you can run some code that belongs to one of the cases. If that's correct, when you call ButtonsPushedCallback, if you have access to the app object, you can provide the button handle within a structure with a field named Source.
S = struct();
S.Source = app.Button1;
ButtonsPushedCallback(app, S)

Glad it worked out! You could simplify my answer to create the structure and the field within the same line:
S = struct('Source', app.Button1);
