# Matlab GUI: changing multiple lines static text

• MATLAB
hi,
I'm ran into a problem while creating a Matlab GUI and I can't seem to find out why.
I'm trying to get multiple lines in one static text. I set the 'max' property on 12 and then wrote the following code to test:

Code:
A='a';B='b';C='c';D='d';E='e';F='f';G='g';H='h';I='i';J='j';K='k';L='l';

set(handles.text1,'String',[A;B;C;D;E;F;G;H;I;J;K;L]);
that seems to work fine, but when I change A to for example 'this is a test', I get an error saying there's something wrong with my set instruction.
I can't seem to be able to display more than one letter for each string.
Can anyone help me with this?

A={'blah blah whatever'};
