Hi,
Is there any way allow me to do this:
  1. Cilck the push button, something like the uiputfile poped up
  2. I choose certain random path and click 'OK'
  3. this path will be shown as the static text in my GUI
Thanks!

Running this:
[file,path] = uiputfile;
returns the selected or specified file path to path.
You can get the fullfile path by doing:
fullfilepath = fullfile(path, file)
You can put the variable fullfilepath into a static text box since it is a string.

However, we recommend not using path as the name of a variable, as that interferes with using the MATLAB function named path
