Hey dear MATLABer
I've been practice using MATLAB .mlapp (under R2017b) to build a GUI with multilple edit box, and some action buttons (like 'ok', 'continue' and 'cancel')
Since this GUI will be called by other .m functions, and I need to save and export the user typed numbers inside the edit box. But I am not sure how shall these data's been export, I know the edit box values are can be found in app.Editlabel1.Value, but how shall I save and handle this data outside .mlapp? And I also want to extend .mlapp
I have read one related question (, but seems not helping with my case

thank you @Cris
at this point I think mlapp will be better to create a stand-alone GUI, but not really convenient to use as a addin GUI function. Because I found not only export data, but also hard to import data . I was trying to assign each edit box with some user predefined values, found it's pretty confusing to add.
