What does "variant Num1 in GUI1" exactly mean? Is this the tag of an uicontrol, a variable in the application data set by guidata() or a field in a struct stored in the UserData?

In GUI1:
function edit1_callback()
num1 = get(hObject,'string');
In GUI2,how can i use handles.num1 ? Thank you!

I prefer to store and share data with the function setappdata and getappdata. This is, in my opinion, more clear and better structured.

If you used GUIDE, you need to use guidata() on the figure number for GUI2 in order to get GUI2's handle structure in GUI1. Then you can change things in the normal way. For example,
handles2 = guidata(GUI2_figure);
set(handles2.Num1, 'Value', get(handles.Num1, 'Value'))

So where to put above command? Thank you very much!
