i have a large workspace (±400 variables) and i want to write a script for my gui, where i can put in a variable in an edit box, press a button next to it, and then the value of this variable has to appear in an other edit box. I'm really stuck on this, does anybody know how to do this???

one edit box to for the name of a variable, and one edit box where the value corresponding to this variable appears. Also there is a button, which has to run the script that gets de data from the workspace an shows it in the second edit box.

You can use this:
varName = evalin('base', 'varNameInWorkspace');
