i have created a GUI (Example.fig) with two objects --> popupmenu and edit text. The user can choose a number from popupmenu and insert a number in edit text. Then in another Example_second_Mfile.m the result should be calculated. Problem: the value of variables, which i created in Example.m of GUI, is unknown by running of Example_second_Mfile.m! how can i call the value of variables in Gui with "function varargout = Example_OutputFcn(hObject, eventdata, handles)" in Example_second_Mfile.m?

And was the suggested FAQ method of writing the stuff out to a .mat file okay for you? If not, why not? then, what about some of the other methods like getappdata()?

If you just want to calc the result once you've inputted the values, you can do:
In function pushbutton1_Calculate_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles), add the following lines:
Result = Example_second_Mfile(Multiple,Input);
msgbox(['Result = ',num2str(Result)]) % to see the result somewhere!
and modify the Example_second_Mfile as:
function Result = Example_second_Mfile(Multiple,Input)
You could also add Result=str2double(Multiple)*(Input); directly into the pushbutton1_Calculate_Callback

Many Thanks for your Help! I actually want see the variable "Result" in Example_second_Mfile and workspace. Zip data is a simple example of my main Program. I use many functions, which I defined in different M-files. With a GUI(hier Example)
1- I want to get inputs (such as variables Input,Multiple) and use them in two different long M-files with many functions.
2- In the last M-file I plot results an want to show them in axes-Object of GUI(hier Example).
3- Furthermore i would like show some result as String in List-Object of GUI
Note: With Pushbottun1_Calculate I get just Inputs. Drawing and listing of results in GUI should be happened without activated Button.
