How do I get my string from a handle.text GUI HELP

4 views (last 30 days)
I'm trying to obtain a string value and set it as a variable 'a' ..
So in the opening function I set a particular handles.text to 'TRUE'. One pushbutton sets handle.text to 'FALSE', but I want to be able to read if that value is true or false to stop a loop.
I tried to set them as integers, but Matlab didn't allow me to? For example
set(handles.text, 'String', 'TRUE')
works fine.. but if I try
set(handles.text, 'double', 0)
i'm told it's an invalid property.. is there a property for integers? if not can I read out my text as a separate variable 'a'?

No there is no "double" property for text label controls. Perhaps you want to use the UserData property to store things.

i'm trying to set text as some sort of string data, and then compare it in an if statement.. if that text handle is true, do this, if false, do that. but I cannot get the data from the text handle.

Get String from text handle:
Checking and breaking a loop:
if strcmp(get(handles.text,'String'),'FALSE')
