Hi, I'm a newbie of the matlab environment, especially for GUI. I'm writing this little script and I need that the user can enter the NAME of a variable (saved in the workspace and already "evalin" in GUI) in an editable text box. So, that's the issue: how I can recall the VALUE of that variable (which is a MATRIX) and use it in the script? Thank you!

Thanks for your comment Adam, but that's what I need. I run a similar procedure using just a script in the workspace and there you can easily use the input command to ask the user. But I have troubles with GUI.

Thank you, but how I can save the matrix? I mean, If I try to save, uisave just save the name of the variable (entered in the text box) and not the variable itself.
