The ability to create a pushbutton with more than one line of text is not directly available in MATLAB.
As a workaround, create an image of multiple lines of text and then display the image on the pushbutton. For example, the attached files below create a button with multiple lines of text by first creating an RGB image of the text and then replacing the button's CData with the image. Each line of text is specified as an element in a cell array in the 'Strings' variable in the file multilinebutton.m. The "createButtonLines" function has many comments which describe the numerous options available.
A related function "CreateButtonLabel" is available on the MATLAB Central File Exchange at the following location:
