UIEDIT multi-line edit box
UIEDIT invokes a GUI object which is similar to the edit box available
in GUIDE. The major difference is that the edit object in GUIDE does
not allow the user to input more than one line of text.

UIEDIT supports:
- Scrollbars
- Multi-line text
- Copy & Paste

If you are using a version prior to 6.5.1 Matlab 6.5 (R13 SP1)
Please see the following documentation for compatability.;jsessionid=C49Th9nSj1FD1PrK6MyKylJWfCYyMTV8GFDWYvxQt5ZqWpGv5hfN!-660561515?solution=1-1ABWL

h = UIEDIT returns a handles to the graphic object.
SET(h,'property',value) and GET(h,'property') can be used to modify the
current object. Some knowledge of activex controls is required to
modify some of the properties.

Properities are slightly different than most GUI objects. Type get(h)
to see a list of properties.

h = uiedit(gcf,[50,50,460,320]);
set(h,'text','This is a uiedit control example')

Am I correct in my assessment that this function will not work on Mac systems because it is not compatible with ActiveX? If so, that's unfortunate. I could have used this type of uicontrol.

Wow! This should be standard. Then we could use it from Guide.
