-file display.m-
selectedCar = handles.popupmenu1.Value;
switch selectedCar
case 2
owners = TYPE1;

How cand I call variable TYPE1 from file display.m, display it on edit text and after that re writing it back to same variable on display.m
Thank you!

@Cristian Martin - can you show some of the code or post the two files? I'm just curious as to what data is being written to these files. It may be simpler to just keep the data (that is written to the file) as a variable/property of the handles struct so that you don't have to open the file to read the contents just to write to the edit text control. Unless you are allowing the user to write data to the file via the GUI

When you call an edit text box, the user inputs some text which will then save. If it is a popup window you are using, you should be able to get the outputs from the user. If this is a popup window in the GUI itself, the value you are looking for will look like "handles.popup1.String"
