Hi, Usama.
Maybe you are seeking for something like this?
In the openingfcn
function untitled_OpeningFcn(hObject, eventdata, handles, varargin)
handles.output = hObject;
files = dir(fullfile(pwd,'Folder01','*.png'));
for x = 1 : length(files)
handles.images{x} = imread(fullfile(pwd,'Folder01',files(x).name));
end
set(handles.listbox1,'string',{files.name});
guidata(hObject, handles);
In the listbox1 callback
function listbox1_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
handles.output = hObject;
index = get(handles.listbox1,'value');
imshow(handles.images{index});
guidata(hObject, handles);
You can also change the image extention by replacing png with another extention
Eq: files = dir(fullfile(pwd,'Folder01','*.jpg'));
And if it is DICOM files
files = dir(fullfile(pwd,'Folder01','*.dcm'));
for x = 1 : length(files)
handles.images{x} = dicomread(fullfile(pwd,'Folder01',files(x).name));
end
I hope this helps.

In openingfcn
function untitled_OpeningFcn(hObject, eventdata, handles, varargin)
handles.output = hObject;
handles.cdir = pwd;
set(handles.listbox1,'enable','off');
guidata(hObject, handles);
In pushbutton callback
function pushbutton1_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
handles.output = hObject;
fn = uigetdir(handles.cdir,'Select directory');
if fn ~= 0
handles.cdir = fn;
img = dir(fullfile(handles.cdir,'*.png'));
for x = 1 : length(img)
handles.I{x} = imread(fullfile(handles.cdir,img(x).name));
end
if length(img) ~= 0, set(handles.listbox1,'enable','on');
else, set(handles.listbox1,'enable','off');
end
set(handles.edit1,'string',handles.cdir);
set(handles.listbox1,'string',{img.name});
end
guidata(hObject, handles);
In listbox callback
function listbox1_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
handles.output = hObject;
index = get(handles.listbox1,'value');
imshow(handles.I{index});
guidata(hObject, handles);

hi, chandra, one doubt, in addition to the listbox and axes.... i have two buttons also.... one named "DELETE" and the other named "RESTORE".....
in the DELETE button when i select a particular item from listbox that name gets deleted from the listbox and the corresponding image gets deleted from the folder....
on click of the RESTORE button all the delete images should get displayed in a figure file and added back to the folder.....
please can u help me do this option.....
i tried, its working when only one image is deleted..... if i delete more than one item, only the last deleted item is getting restored..... can u help me sort it out.....

I don't know how to put images into listboxes. You can put the name of the image files into the listboxes (like Titus showed you) but you can't put the images themselves in with MATLAB only. However, you can put an ActiveX control onto your GUI, and there are third party ActiveX controls that can have images in a listbox, such as ( http://www.atalasoft.com/products/dotimage/winforms). Or you can use Microsoft's "ListView" control: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ie/bb398790.aspx. Scroll down the page about half way until you see the listbox with pictures of bicycles in it.

Hi Usama,
something like the following:
files = dir(fullfile(theFolder, '*.jpg'));
set(handles.listbox1, 'string', {files.name})
