I'm trying to collect key presses and I need to see which key they pressed but MATLAB keeps giving me the numerical code as opposed to the character. How do I get the character as output instead?

It would be good if you provide us with a snippet of the code you are using right now.
With the current information provided, I can suggest 2 things:
  • Convert the numeric value to a character using char()
  • Use get(gcf,'currentcharacter') to get the actual string

I've been using
[KeyIsDown, secs, KeyCode] = KbCheck;
