The reason the text area is displayed in a new figure is that the uicontrol function is not supported in App Designer. There is a component named TextArea which can be used in App Designer to create a text box.
For more information, refer to the documentation pages of text area component.
Hope this helps!

Thanks very much. Using " fb=uitextarea(app.UIFigure) ", I have created the textareas by loop
" fb=uitextarea(app.UIFigure);
fb.Position=[327+32*j 335-24*i 29 20];
fb.BackgroundColor=[0.6 0.8 0.1];"
