answer = inputdlg(prompt,dlg_title,num_lines,defAns) defAns specifies the default value to display for each prompt. defAns must contain the same number of elements as prompt and all elements must be strings.

answer = inputdlg(prompt,dlg_title,num_lines,defAns,Resize) Resize specifies whether or not the dialog box can be resized. Permissible values are 'on' and 'off' where 'on' means that the dialog box can be resized and that the dialog box is not modal.
