To call the the getpercentage function successfully, you need to feed it the property variables as an input, so add "app" as an input.
function [] = getpercentage(app)
%Update text of Edit field
for ii = 1:100
percentage = num2str(ii);
app.PercentageEditField.Value = percentage;
Then simply call the function within a call back.
function PercentageEditFieldValueChanged(app, event)
Is there a reason why you want to iterate through 100 values for the editfield? If it is for testing purposes, you could use TestCase.
For example:
tc = matlab.uitest.TestCase.forInteractiveUse;
for ii = 1:100
percentage = num2str(ii);

Thanks a lot, I should, this is second times I got suggest to use uiprogressdlg, first time when i asked mathworks about why Matlab live script doesn't have clear output option for particular to disp statments in live script,
Ex: if I'm running log values from a loop because when it goes overbound we can't see current log value on display usually.
