Hello can someone tell me how to change the color of only a part of the text?
app.c = uilabel('Parent',app.Panel,'Position',[5,50,105,25],'Text',([char(9723) 'measurement ' '15' ': -X']));

The FontColor property of uilabel affects the entire label.
There is no built-in method of coloring parts of labels.
As a workaround, you could contiguously position several labels containing parts of the full label and set the colors of each partial-label accordingly. You'd likely need to use a fixed width font to get the spacing right but even with a fixed width font, this will be tricky. To set the FontName to your systems default fixed width font see this answer.
