I have created a program to automatically convert letters into morse code, but for some reason the output is not being saved, can someone please help me on this? thanks
function varargout = FOPfinal(varargin)
% FOPFINAL MATLAB code for FOPfinal.fig
% FOPFINAL, by itself, creates a new FOPFINAL or raises the existing
% singleton*.
%
% H = FOPFINAL returns the handle to a new FOPFINAL or the handle to
% the existing singleton*.
%
% FOPFINAL('CALLBACK',hObject,eventData,handles,...) calls the local
% function named CALLBACK in FOPFINAL.M with the given input arguments.
%
% FOPFINAL('Property','Value',...) creates a new FOPFINAL or raises the
% existing singleton*. Starting from the left, property value pairs are
% applied to the GUI before FOPfinal_OpeningFcn gets called. An
% unrecognized property name or invalid value makes property application
% stop. All inputs are passed to FOPfinal_OpeningFcn via varargin.
%
% *See GUI Options on GUIDE's Tools menu. Choose "GUI allows only one
% instance to run (singleton)".

This is caused by the very problem I was explaining ... overwriting handles.text_input with something that's not a handle. I would restart the GUI and try it again, after making this change:
function pushbutton2_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
userinput = get(handles.text_input,'String'); % don't forget the 'String'

@Nicholas Mun - without knowing exactly what the input string looks like, I think that you need to replace
output_string = [output_string ' ' morsecode(index)];
with
output_string = [output_string ' ' morsecode{index}];
. Since morsecode is a cell array of strings, then we use the {} to index into the array to extract the string. Note that when you use (), a cell is returned instead (which means that the output_string would be cell array.
Note that you should probably remove the line
fprintf('\n');
as I don't think it serves any real purpose.
