The following documentation provides an example of using the value of a 'uieditfield' to change the value of a 'uilabel' element. Using a similar approach, you can update the title of a plot since the Title property accepts a string as an input:
For updating the x and y axis limits, you could use an 'uieditfield' that accepts numeric input and use that value to update the axis limit properties. For information on creating an edit field which accepts numeric input, refer here:
To access and change the properties of an axes, you can use the following syntax, 'app.UIAxes.PropertyName'. For more information on the various properties of an 'uiaxes' that you can access/modify, refer to the following documentation page:
