Just type and execute:
and have fun with it, don't forget to read the documentation
doc guide
The other way is to do it all on one function with subfunctions and lots of code, start with guide and when you feel comfortable using it you can do all with code, no .fig file required.

Beside using GUIDE, you can create a GUI manually also. Some examples can be found in the toolboxes, e.g. read the sources of MSGBOX, LISTDLG and HELPDLG. A minimal example:
DlgH = figure;
ButtonH = uicontrol('Sytle', 'PushButton', 'Position', [10, 10, 100, 22], ...
'String', 'Button', 'Callback', 'disp(clock)');
[EDITED]: Please use "Style" instead of the typo "Sytle"!
You will get a more specific answer, if you explain your demands with any details.

@Mohammad: Well, this is called a typo. Read the documentation of UICONTROL or inspect the list of its properties by "set uicontrol" to find out, that it should be "Style" instead of "Sytle". I expect a certain level of cooperation.

I just have created this Figure
M = figure('units','pixels','position',[500 500 200 50], 'menubar','none','numbertitle','off','name','Mohammad', 'resize','on')
do you think I can use of "Set" to change the background or something else I should add to this ?
my mean , for example how can I make a bigger figure? can I re-size it , not manually

I would recommend instead using
m = load('clown');
m2 = ind2rgb(m.X,;
Otherwise you "use up" your one and only figure colormap on a frill. Keep in mind: you can only have one colormap per figure.
