function myGUI
S.f = figure;
S.row = uicontrol('Style','edit', 'Units','normalized', ...
'Position',[0.4 0.6 0.1 0.1]);
S.column = uicontrol('Style', 'edit', 'Units','normalized', ...
'Position',[0.6 0.6 0.1 0.1]);
S.btn = uicontrol('Style','push', 'String','Create table', ...
'Units','normalized', 'Position',[0.5 0.5 0.1 0.1]);
set(S.btn, 'Callback',{@createtable,S});
function createtable(varargin)
rowSize = str2num(get(S.row, 'String'));
colSize = str2num(get(S.column, 'String'));
initdata = zeros(rowSize,colSize);
S.table = uitable('Parent',S.f, 'Data', initdata, ...
'Units','normalized', 'Position',[0.4 0.2 0.4 0.2], ...

I learnt from the MATLAB Documentation, asked questions here and I found the following contribution very helpful: 41 Complete GUI Examples. This book is also advantageous if you want to learn GUI-making. And most importantly, practise a lot!

For a simpler, more interactive way, use GUIDE, so you don't have to figure out dozens of input parameters for uicontrol(). See this tutorial
