description of the Matplot entities properties


The Matplot entity is a leaf of the graphics entities hierarchy. It represents 2D plots of surface using colors and images (see Matplot and Matplot1).


This property contains the handle of the parent. The parent of the Matplot entity should be of the type "Axes".


This property contains a vector with the children of the handle. However, Matplot handles currently do not have any children.


This field contains the visible property value for the entity . It should be "on" or "off" . By default, the plot is visible, the value's property is "on". If "off" the plot is not drawn on the screen.


This field defines a [mxn] color data matrix using the current colormap. The color associated to color(i,j) is used do draw a small square of length 1 with center at location (x=j,y=(m-i+1)).


This field contains the clip_state property value for the Matplot. It should be :

  • "off" this means that the Matplot is not clipped.

  • "clipgrf" this means that the Matplot is clipped outside the Axes box.

  • "on" this means that the Matplot is clipped outside the rectangle given by property clip_box.


This field is to determinate the clip_box property. By Default its value should be an empty matrix if clip_state is "off". Other cases the vector [x,y,w,h] (upper-left point width height) defines the portions of the Matplot to display, however clip_state property value will be changed.


This field can be use to store any scilab variable in the Matplot data structure, and to retreive it.


e=gce(); // get current entity$:-1:1) // reverse order
