figure

create a figure

Syntax

f = figure(num);
f = figure("PropertyName1", Propertyvalue1, ..., ..., "PropertyNameN", PropertyvalueN);

Description

This routine creates a figure. If an ID is given, the figure corresponding to this ID is created. Otherwise, the window is created with the first free ID, that is the lowest integer not already used by a window.

Arguments

num

ID of the window to create. If not specified, the first free ID is used.

PropertyName{1, ..., N}

character string: Name of a property to set, among all existing ones.

  • 'dockable', 'toolbar' and 'menubar' properties can be set only at figure's creation.
  • 'resizefcn': when it is set at figure's creation, the callback is first executed while building the initial figure. Hence it must already be defined and callable.
PropertyValue{1, ..., N}

scilab object value to give to the corresponding property.

f

handle of the newly created window.

Examples

// Create figure having figure_id==3
h=figure(3);
// Add a text uicontrol in figure 3
uicontrol(h, "style", "text", ...
             "string", "This is a figure", ...
             "position", [50 70 100 100], ...
             "fontsize",15);

// Create figure having figure_id==1
figure();
// Add a text uicontrol in figure 1
uicontrol("style", "text", ...
          "string", "Another figure", ...
          "position", [50 70 100 100], ...
          "fontsize", 15);

// Close current figure (ie figure 1)
close();
// close figure 3
close(h);
