Not enough input arguments error

So I'm writing a code which accesses all of the .csv files in a specific folder, and then applies a specific type of curve fit to the data. I got all this to work perfectly fine, but now I want to make a GUI for the code. I'm running into an issue I don't really know how to solve. Here is the code I've reworked for the GUI so far:
%Generate the primary window
function main_window
main_window = figure('Position',[300 300 1000 500], 'MenuBar', 'none', 'ToolBar', 'none',...
'NumberTitle','off','Name','Curve Fitting for SORA Science Team')
clearvars -except main_window
t = uicontrol(main_window,'Style','text',...
'String','To use this curve fitting application, simply select a folder containing your desired .csv files. This program will automatically apply an 8-term Fourier Series as the fitted curve, though if this is not sufficient you can launch the curve fitting toolbox and manually fit the curve. Once all of your data sets have been curve fitted, click the integrate button to produce compare data sets.',...
'Position',[10 20 200 200]);
file_panel = uipanel('Title','Files in Session','FontSize',8,...
'Position',[.01 .507 .2 .46]);
file_list = uicontrol(file_panel,'Style','listbox',...
'Position',[10 60 176 150],'Value',1);
load_file_btn = uicontrol(file_panel,'Style','pushbutton','String','Load New Files',...
'Position',[10 10 100 40],'Callback', @load_files);
plot_panel = uipanel('Title','Curve Fitted Plots','FontSize',8,...
'Position',[.22 .07 .77 .9]);
tgroup = uitabgroup('Parent', plot_panel);
function load_files(hObject, eventdata, handles)
Folder_Location = uigetdir;
d = dir([Folder_Location, '\*.csv']);
n = length(d);
All_Files = dir( fullfile(Folder_Location,'*.csv') );
All_Files = {}';
set(handles.file_list, 'String', char(All_Files));
When run the following error is given:
Not enough input arguments.
Error in plot_test>load_files (line 25)
set(handles.file_list, 'String', char(All_Files));
Error while evaluating UIControl Callback
Any idea what the problem might be? It does everything properly but then gets hung up on the last line where I try to print out all of the file names into a list box.

You have
load_file_btn = uicontrol(file_panel,'Style','pushbutton','String','Load New Files',...
'Position',[10 10 100 40],'Callback', @load_files);
By default, MATLAB passes only two parameters to the callback. Your routine
function load_files(hObject, eventdata, handles)
expects 3 parameters.
If you did manage to pass in handles then you would just have postponed the problem, as there is no files_list field in handles
