I have 2 questions.
1) Can checkboxes be implemented into the UItable when building a gui.
2) If so, can rows and checkboxes be added dynamically to the UItable.

1) Yes
2) Yes
you can change the column format of the table at any point, using the ColumnFormat field of the uitable:
T = uitable('Data',{'a',false;'b' true},...
'ColumnFormat',{[] , 'numeric'},...
'ColumnEditable',[false true]);
pause(1)
set(T,'ColumnFormat',{[],'logical'})

2 I suppose, it's not specific to GUIDE - you can run it in the command line or paste it into a script and run it. It shows a table being created, and then the second column being converted from numeric data to logical checkboxes.

I meant literal checkboxes from the GUIDE program

To do it in GUIDE, you right click on the table, select Table Property Editor, then in the Columns tab there is an option to select what data format each column will take: make it 'logical'.

Also, how could I install another push button "Remove Row" to delete all new created rows. Is there a way to implement add/remove buttons with GUIDE?
