plottools

Show or hide plot tools

Syntax

plottools('on')
plottools('off')
plottools
plottools(figure_handle,...)
plottools(...,'tool')

Description

plottools('on') displays the Figure Palette, Plot Browser, and Property Editor on the current figure, configured as you last used them.

plottools('off') hides the Figure Palette, Plot Browser, and Property Editor on the current figure.

plottools with no arguments, is the same as plottools('on')

plottools(figure_handle,...) displays or hides the plot tools on the specified figure instead of on the current figure.

plottools(...,'tool') operates on the specified tool only. tool can be one of the following strings:

  • figurepalette

  • plotbrowser

  • propertyeditor

    Note:   The first time you open the plotting tools, all three of them appear, grouped around the current figure as shown above. If you close, move, or undock any of the tools, MATLAB® remembers the configuration you left them in and restores it when you invoke the tools for subsequent figures, both within and across MATLAB sessions.

Alternatives

Click the larger Plotting Tools icon on the figure toolbar to collectively enable plotting tools, and the smaller icon to collectively disable them. Individually select the Figure Palette, Plot Browser, and Property Editor tools from the figure's View menu. For details, see Customize Graph Using Plot Tools.
