Is there a programmable method to count the number of patches or textboxes there are in a given figure, and then put the number in an array?

% All text boxes:
List1 = findall(HandleOfFigure, 'Type', 'uicontrol', 'Style', 'text')
Count1 = numel(List1)
% All patches:
List2 = findall(HandleOfFigure, 'Type', 'patch')
Count2 = numel(List2)

I get the following error:
"Undefined function or variable 'HandleOfFigure'
