set(handles.parameterW,'string',{['stiffness = ',num2str(A),' Nm/deg,',' Damping = ',num2str(B),' Nm/(rad/s)']});
Current output:
stiffness = 1 Nm/deg, Damping = 0 Nm/(rad/s)
Output i required:
stiffness = 1 Nm/deg,
Damping = 0 Nm/(rad/s)

"But, i don't know, how to use inside set(handles.parameterW.....)"
Change FPRINTF to SPRINTF

set(handles.parameterW,'string',{['stiffness = ',num2str(A)+newline+' Nm/deg,',' Damping = ',num2str(B),'
or
set(handles.parameterW,'string',{['stiffness = ',num2str(A),\n' Nm/deg,',' Damping = ',num2str(B),'

Hi Vinothkumar,
It is my understanding that you want to insert a newline in a string. The example code is given below:
set(handles.parameterW,'string',{['stiffness = ',num2str(A),' Nm/deg,', newline,' Damping = ',num2str(B),' Nm/(rad/s)']});
Hope this helps.
