Loading a pre-running function into a static Text Box.

2 views (last 30 days)
Hey Guys. Really new to MATLAB. I have been trolling through pages and pages of comments and threads trying to find out. Basically, I have a large function (A.m) running which at one point calls another function (B.m). Now B.m keeps track of the progress of A.m. I want to print B.m into a static text box of a GUI made in GUIDE. I can't think of a way to do this. Please help. I'm about to throw my computer out the window.

1) Be sure to pass the "handles" variable to your subfunctions, so they can "communicate" with your GUI as properties (e.g. string, font size, font color, etc) get updated
Typically Callbacks for buttons, etc, look like:
function pushbutton1_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
2) Assuming your static text box has the tag "update_text"
set(handles.update_text,'String',"Insert updated string here"); %sets new property for static_text
guidata(hObject,handles); %updates the figure with new "handles" information
