Welcome All...
I have GUI with multiple Edit( To Get User Input ).
I wish to ADD Reset Pushbutton in order to clear All input.
How I can do it ?

You will have to hard-code this functionality. You will need to create a pushbutton and then under that new pushbutton function you will have to use "set" to restore all your edit boxes back to blank space or a default value. I.e.,
set(handles.my_edit_box,'String','');
or
set(handles.my_edit_box,'String','some_default_value');

Well, findobj to locate the boxes whose String is to be set
set(findobj('Tag','ResetAllowed'),'String',{''})
This will, however, not work if you are using GUIDE, as GUIDE uses the Tag property for other things.

set(findobj(0,'style','edit'),'string','') %put this in the button callback
%that should clear all edit uicontrols
or
set(findobj(handles.figure1,'style','edit'),'string','')
%should only clear the edit uicontrols from the current GUI

Grateful to you :)
OK..
What About this code , How do I take advantage of it ?
closeGUI = handles.figure1; %handles.figure1 is the GUI figure
% guiPosition = get(handles.figure1,'Position'); %get the position of the GUI
% guiName = get(handles.figure1,'Name'); %get the name of the GUI
% eval(guiName) %call the GUI again
%
% close(closeGUI); %close the old GUI
% set(gcf,'Position',guiPosition); %set the position for the new GUI
