This example demonstrates how you can build a GUI with dynamic positioning of UI components (no distortions).
It is a simple GUI with an axis, slider, and a push button. The slider changes the coefficient in the equation:

y = sin(C*x) + cos((10-C)*x)

And it plots the equation. The push button resets the coefficient to 4.

The figure has a ResizeFcn defined so that every time the figure is resized, it re-positions the components. It keeps the size of the push button the same, and the slider and the axis fill the rest of the screen.

Try:
Resizing the figure window, and notice the size of the UI components.
