Hello, i want make some program that show the text from listbox to static text. there's 2 listbox which have some value. and the smallest value between the two listbox will show in the static text for some time. Some example, in listbox1 theres '4' & '8' and in listbox2 theres '5' & '6'. so then in the static text will show 4 for some time (exmple for 5 sec) and then after the time it will show 5 for some time too and then 6 and lastly 8. Anybody can give me same idea or maybe some program that can be used for this kind of program.

Sounds like a job for a timer object.

if you dont need a generalized solution:
for i=1:2 % else replace 2 with numel(handles.TagAnyListBox.string)
handles.TagOfyourStaticText.String=handles.TagFirstListbox.String{i};
wait(5);
handles.TagOfyourStaticText.String=handles.TagSecondListbox.String{i};
wait(5);
end
handles.tagStaticTxt.string=[];

I try wait function but it said undefined function. So is there something I should add?

replace wait with pause then
for i=1:2 % else replace 2 with numel(handles.TagAnyListBox.String)
handles.TagOfyourStaticText.String=handles.TagFirstListbox.String{i};
pause(5);
handles.TagOfyourStaticText.String=handles.TagSecondListbox.String{i};
pause(5);
end
handles.tagStaticTxt.string=[];
you have to place this whereever you want it to have, i cant guess when you want this to happen. if you want it to happen right after you opened yout GUI place it in the opening function. and dont forget to replace the TAGS. i cant know how you named your listbox or static txt
