we have extracted a value from GUI using
id1=get(handles.id1,'String');
Now i want to check if the value is a number. How do i do this?
If the value is a number that is converted to a string using the above line, how do I convert it back to a number?

"...how do I convert it back to a number?"
Convert to numeric:
num = str2double(id1)
"Now i want to check if the value is a number"
isn = ~isnan(num)
