I have a GUI with a save button, and I would like to open a dialog box where the user can enter the filename and select the format of the file (pdf or png)

You can use this code inside the Callback function of your save button:
[filename, pathname] = uiputfile({'*.pdf';'*.png';'*.*'},'Save as');
if isequal(filename,0) || isequal(pathname,0)
% user selected cancel button
% user selected a pathname and filename
% you can use these variables to save what you want
% in that path and by that name
you can also specify a path as default:
[filename, pathname] = uiputfile({'*.pdf';'*.png';'*.*'},'Save as', 'C:\untitle.png');
