    Create a push button and wait until the user presses it. Then display a message.

    Create a push button with the text Continue and a callback that calls the uiresume function when you click it. When program execution begins, display a message in the Command Window. Pause program execution until you click Continue or close the figure window. Then display a new message.

    fig = uifigure;
    btn = uibutton(fig);
    btn.Text = 'Continue';
    btn.ButtonPushedFcn = 'uiresume(fig)';
    
    disp('This text prints immediately');
    uiwait(fig)
    disp('This text prints after you click Continue');

    A "Continue" button display in the lower left corner of a figure window."

    Create an alert dialog box and wait until it receives a response before allowing program execution to continue.

    Create a line plot in a UI figure and display an alert dialog box. Specify a CloseFcn callback for the dialog box that calls uiresume on the figure when the dialog box receives a response. Pause program execution until you click OK in the dialog box or close it. When program execution resumes, display a message in the Command Window.

    To run this function, save it to a file named resumeInFunction.m on the MATLAB path. Run resumeInFunction, and then click the push button. MATLAB displays a message in the Command Window.

    function resumeInFunction
        fig = uifigure;
        fig.Position = [500 500 500 350]; 
        ax = uiaxes(fig);
        plot(ax,1:10)
        
        uialert(fig,'A line plot was created in the axes.', ...
            'Program Information','Icon','info','CloseFcn',@alertCallback)
        
        uiwait(fig)
        disp('Program execution resumed')
        
        function alertCallback(src,event)
            uiresume(fig)
        end
    end

    A 2-D line plot with an alert titled "Program Information" that reads, "A line plot was created on the axes."
