hello guys,

just wondering if anyone knows how to output the contents of a .dat or .txt file into a text box in a matlab gui.

i've used the following to create a .dat or .txt file.

fiw = fopen('watermarks.txt','wt');
fprintf(fiw,'\n watermark # %d = %s position = %d',kk,str,POSITION(kk));

i'm currently outputing to the command window using :

disp(sprintf(' watermark # %d = %s position = %d',kk,str,POSITION(kk)));

Thanks in advance

Ron

If the text you wish to write to the text box is in String format then just set the handles for that textbox. For example:

If you have a textbox called textbox, and the String that you wish to write to it is in the variable var, then to write the String to the text box you would write:

set(handles.textbox,'String'
,var);

When the function to create/update the textbox/GUI is called the text will be written to the textbox.
