Selecting a row of image pixels as ROI from GUI

Does anyone know of a way to use GUIDE to allow a user to select a 1-dimensional row (vector) of pixels in an image as a region of interest (i.e. the straight edge of an object)? I have an edge detected (logical) version of the colour image, and want to use the user's selection to find the closest edge coordinates that correspond to that image.
Many thanks in advance for any help you can throw my way.

Make a GUI with pushbutton and axis
Display the image on that axis
The button callback will be something like this
This will allow you to get the coordinates of the pixels, x is a vector with the vertical positions and y is a vector with the horizontal positions, number is the number of points you let the user mark on the picture.
If you want the user to decide how many points he wants do something like this
while button==1
plot(x,y,'rx') %mark the point
if button==1
xx=[xx x];yy=[yy y];
This will save the points the user selected into xx and yy vectors until the user presses another button than 1 (left mouse button on my system)
