Using Character and Numeric Variables in Text
Any string variable is a valid specification for the text
String property. This section illustrates how to use matrix, cell array, and numeric variables as arguments to the
For example, each row of the matrix
PersonalData contains specific information about a person (note that all but the longest row are padded with a space so that each has the same number of columns).

MATLAB concatenates the three separate strings into one.
Since the result is a valid string, you can specify it as a value for the text
