int2str versus str2int?

I am trying to create a uicontrol edit text box, and get the user
input string to be read as a value: The user will actually put in a

function edit2_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)

guidata(hObject, handles)

This seems to give as a string, thus reads its ASCII
value when I try to use it in calculations.

The 'int2str' function converts a number to a string, is there a
function that does the reverse?

Thanks heaps,

Use STR2DOUBLE. You may also want to use ROUND to get integer values.

WOW, that was quick!

Thankyou so much for your help, I didn't see that in the help/doc
files before. It also led me to str2num(), which will probably be
just as good for an integer. should round it off to get to an integer

Thanks again,
