Accepted answer

In the button callback

% Get edit text
edit1String = get(handles.edit1, 'string');
% Display it on a static text label
set(handles.staticText, 'String', edit1String);

You might look at this framework that demonstrates all that for you. http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/24224 You just replace the simple functions with your own code. It has all the essential things like scroll bars, push buttons, radio buttons, etc. and when you click on them they do simple things like display text saying that you clicked on them. You replace that code with useful code that does something you want.

Hi,

For most of the people, the Matlab's GUI editor (GUIDE) is quite annoying. But if you want to learn more about GUIDE, see the link below

This will not help you learn more about GUIDE. It's for people who want to build the GUI themselves without the assistance of GUIDE. Though GUIDE has it's issues, I still think it's better than doing it myself piecemeal.
