Plotting Commands area Creates stacked areas in an axes and returns handles of the areas. axes Create a new axes or set current axes by passing a handle argument. axis Sets the scaling and range of x, y and z axis's (x by default). Called with out arguments, axis will turn autoscaling on. bar Creates bars in an axis and returns handles of the bars. cla Clears the current axes or axes specified by handle. clf Clears the current figure or figure specified by handle. close Close the current, or a specific, or all figure window. contour Creates 2D contoured surface in an axes. contour3 Creates 3D contoured surface in an axes. figure Creates a new figure for plotting. fill Creates 2D filled in polygons of range x and y and color c. gca Returns a handle to the current axes object. gcf Returns a handle to the current figure. get Returns the value of the named property p from the graphics handle, h. If property name is omitted, all properties of h will be returned. Graphics Object Properties Properties for the graphics object in OpenMatrix. grid Turn on/off grid lines in a plot. Toggle the states if no argument is used. hist Creates a histogram in an axis. hold Turn on/off the "hold" state of axes. Toggle the states if no argument is used. When the "hold" state is on, new plotting data will be added into current axes. isaxes Returns true if x is an axis handle; returns false if otherwise. isfigure Returns true if x is a figure graphics handle; returns false if otherwise. ishandle Returns true if x is a graphics handle; returns false if otherwise. ishold Returns true if the next plot will be added to the current one; returns false if otherwise. legend Update legend text of axes. Turn on/off the legend of axes. Toggle the states if no argument is used. line Add a curve in current axes or a specified axes. loglog Plots a given dataset in 2D axes with logarithmic scales for x and y axes. mesh Creates mesh in an axes and returns handles of the mesh. meshgrid Construct a grid of points from coordinate vectors. plot Plots a given dataset in 2D axes. plot3 Creates 3D lines in an axes and returns handles of the lines. polar Creates a line plot in polar coordinates. scatter Creates dots in an axes and returns handles of the dots. scatter3 Creates 3D dots in an axes and returns handles of the dots. semilogx Plots a given dataset in 2D axes with logarithmic scales for x axis. semilogy Plots a given dataset in 2D axes with logarithmic scales for y axis. set Sets property values for graphics handles. stem Creates a stem plot in an axis and returns the stem handles. subplot Sets up a plot grid with rows by cols subwindows and sets the current axes for plotting to the location given by index. surf Creates surfaces in an axes and returns handles of the surfaces. text Creates a textbox at coordinate x,y with text 't'. title Puts a title on the plot. xlabel Annotates the x-axis. xlim Set and query range of x axis. ylabel Annotates the y-axis. ylim Set and query range of y axis. zlabel Annotates the z-axis. zlim Set and query range of z axis.
