or any other way to show these messages in my presentation?

message = sprintf(' The name is: %s \n  \n Value 1 is : %.1f \n \n Value 2 is : %.1f \n \n A_Output is:%.5f \n \n SR Output is :%.5f \n \nThe Actual output is  :   %.5f \n\n ',z{1},x,y,A_output,SR,Actual_output);

Unfortunately msgbox() doesn't allow formatting options for the text it displays. I've put in a request for this a long time ago. I'd encourage you to send an email to asking for it also. In the meantime I think you're stuck writing your own little dialog box.

I don't use magbox, but for formatted messages in command window, look at cprintf
