twinkle

is used to have a graphics entity blinking

Syntax

twinkle
twinkle(n)
twinkle(h)
twinkle(h,n)

Arguments

h

handle of the unique graphics entity to blink. By default, the current graphic entity handled with gce() is considered.

n

positive integer number: the number of blinks. Default n = 5.

Description

twinkle blinks n times the graphical entity handled with h. If twinkle() is run while no graphical figure exists, it does nothing and returns. If the handle h is invalid (the entity has been deleted in the meantime), twinkle(h..) yields an error.

Examples

clf
plot()
twinkle     // twinkles the last group of curves plotted in the plot() example
twinkle(3)  // twinkles it only three times

clf
x = linspace(-2*%pi,2*%pi,100)';
plot2d(x,[sin(x),cos(x)]);
e = gce();
p1 = e.children(1);
p2 = e.children(2);
twinkle(p1)       // cos plot twinkle
twinkle(p2,10)    // sin plot twinkle 10 times
twinkle(gca())    // axes twinkle
