I know how to design a GUI interface through MATLAB, but I'm not sure how to connect my script to it.
My script is ~110 lines in length.
For a simplified case- let's say, I have this:
% X-axis
x = 1:1000;
% Y-axis
y = sin(x);
% Plotting Sine Wave
plot(x, y)
xlim([0 1000])
ylim([-1 1])
xlabel('Time (s)')
ylabel('Value (unit)')
In my GUI, I want user inputs to be:
x, y, xlim, ylim, etc.
How would I go about doing this?
I haven't found much transparency in how to go about connecting an extensive script into a GUI format.

You can use App Designer to do the same. Firstly, you need to create Edit Fields for all the information that you want the user to input (ex, x,y xlim, ylim etc). You can then create a button and add it's callback to retrieve the values that were input. You can add the functionality of your script within the ButtonPush Callback as answered here.
