Справка Scilab >> Графики > handle > relocate_handle


Move handles inside the graphic hierarchy. This function is obsolete.

Calling Sequence

relocate_handle( movedHandles, parent )



Vector of relocated handles.


New parent of the handles.


The relocate_handle function allows to move handles from their current locations in the graphical hierarchy to another. All the moved entities are relocated under the same parent handle specified with the parent parameter.

Since not every handles are compatible with each others, some restrictions exist when relocationg handles. For examples, it is not allowed to move an axes handle under a polyline. More information about compatibility can be found in the graphics_entities page.

This routine is particularly useful to move an object from an axes entity to an other or to move axes from figures handles.


x = 0:10 ;

// plot a first polyline
plot(x,x^2) ;
axes1 = gca() ;
poly1 = gce() ;

// plot a second in an other window
scf() ;
plot( x,x )  ;
axes2 = gca() ;
poly2 = gce()  ;
poly2bis = copy( poly2 ) ; // make a copy of the polyline

// put both polyline in the same window
relocate_handle( poly2bis, axes1 ) ;
