I am trying to pull a number out of the string in the postion below and input into a second function to be used to solve an equation
this is what I currently have
function[] = FinalProject()
global vendor;
vendor.W1 = 0;
vendor.LengthWDisplay = uicontrol('style','text','units','normalized',...
'position', [.034 .80 .09 .095],'string','Input length W','horizontalalignment','right');
vendor.W1 = uicontrol('style','edit','units','normalized','position',...
[.15 .80 .09 .05],'string','edit','horizontalalignment','right');
function [] = solve()
global vendor;
W1 = str2num(vendor.W1.string);
If i need to explain this more then I can

It looks like you are trying to build an app programmatically. If you haven't already done so, I recommend looking at this example.
Without more context, I'd recommend you use app designer.
