How to display Multiple Statements in a GUI Edit Box

7 views (last 30 days)
I am a new user of Matlab; I am facing this problem that whenever I write into an edit box using 'set' command, result of last 'set' command is only displayed in the edit box. For example set(handles.edit1,'String','This is first statement'); set(handles.edit1,'String','This is second statement'); then only " This is second statement" string displayed in the edit box; where as I want both in the edit box. Please Guide me in this regard

String = {'This is first statement'};
set(handles.edit1 , 'String' , String);
String = {String{:},'This is the 2nd statement'};
set(handles.edit , 'Max' , 2) % To accomodate multi line text
set(handles.edit1 , 'String' , String);
