I use the GUI Layout toolbox to put all my components in layouts and have them resize nicely. It's more work, but I find it way better than alternatives. Resizing GUIs is always a big problem as they usually look awful when maximised, whether the components resize or not, unfortunately. Neither of these methods will scale text size though. There is a setting to do that, though I can't remember it off-hand. I seem to remember it is a bit suspicious though and resized my text differently in different places that just looked stupid.

If your GUI was created in GUIDE(),
  1. open your gui in guide: guide('mygui')
  2. Select tools > GUI Options...
  3. In the "Resize behavior" dropdown box, select 'Proportional'
  4. Save, close
  5. If your GUI is already opened, close it; run your GUI
If your GUI was created programmatically using UICONTROL(),
  1. Set the units of all GUI components to 'normalized (see below)
% h is the handle to the figure hosting your gui
set(findall(h, '-property', 'Units' ), 'Units', 'Normalized' )
If your GUI was created in APP DESIGNER
  1. open your gui in app designer: appdesigner('mygui')
  2. From the component browser on the right, select the main figure (probably on top of the list)
  3. In the UI Figure Properties window below, select 'Resize components when app is resized'.
  4. Save the app; close.
  5. If your GUI is already opened, close it; run your GUI
Now you can maximize the figure and the components should scale to the new figure size.
