replot
redraw with new boundaries the current or a given set of axes
Syntax
replot() replot(area) replot(idAxes) replot(area, idAxes) replot(.., tight_limits)
Arguments
 area
row vector [xmin ymin xmax ymax] or [xmin ymin zmin xmax ymax zmax]: new bounds of the area to be replotted.
The default area is [%inf %inf %inf %inf] for a 2D axes, or [%inf %inf %inf %inf %inf %inf] for a 3D one.%nan
can be used to keep a bound as is.%inf
can be used to set a bound to the position of the most marginal graphical component existing in the axes, for the considered direction.
If N axes are identified in
idAxes
,area
may be a matrix with N rows and 4 or 6 columns. The row #i is then related to the axes #i ofidAxes
. Ifarea
is only a vector of 4 or 6 bounds, these ones are used for all axes to be reframed. idAxes
Vector of graphic handles, expected to be of Axes type or to have direct children of type Axes, such as Figures or some frame uicontrols.
idAxes
specifies direct or children Axes to crop. If no axes is found, nothing is done.By default, the current Axes is considered.
 tight_limits
Single word
"tight"
or"on"
or"off"
, or vector of 2 (in 2D) or 3 (in 3D) words"tight"
or"on"
or"off"
. If a single word is provided, it is used for every axis. This option forces the.tight_limits
attribute of considered axes to the specified"on"
or"off"
values. By default, current limits modes are unchanged.
Description
replot
is used to reframe the (set of) axes specified
with idAxes
 or by default the current axes 
with new boundaries defined by
area = [xmin,ymin, xmax,ymax]
or
area = [xmin,ymin,zmin, xmax,ymax,zmax]
.
It changes the data_bounds
attribute of processed axes.
When a specified bound is infinite (%inf and %inf are equivalent),
replot
looks for the most marginal graphical object
and sets the actual related bound to its position, taking also
objects sizes into account. This ensures not clipping any object
that would be beyond the targeted side of the axes.
When the tight_limits
option is provided,
its value is assigned to the .tight_limits
attribute of each considered axes, in an axiswise way.
Examples
xdel(winsid()); plot() // plot demo f = gcf(); replot([1,1,10,2],f.children(1)) // specify axes handle's value replot([3,2,8,4],f.children(2))
// Leaving some bounds as is with %nan: x = linspace(0,360,200).'; clf plot2d(x,[sind(x) tand(x)]) ax = gca(); ax.data_bounds // initial bounds replot([%nan,10,%nan,10]) // only Ymin and Ymax are changed ax.data_bounds // updated bounds
