Create group object


h = hggroup
h = hggroup(...,'PropertyName',propertyvalue,...)
h = hggroup(ax,...)


For a list of properties, see Group Properties.


h = hggroup creates a Group object as a child of the current axes and returns its handle, h.

h = hggroup(...,'PropertyName',propertyvalue,...) creates a Group object with the property values specified in the argument list.

h = hggroup(ax,...) creates the Group object in the axes specified by ax instead of in the current axes (gca). The option ax can precede any of the input argument combinations in the previous syntaxes.

A Group object can be the parent of any axes, as well as other Group objects. Use Group objects to form a group of child objects that can be treated as a single object.


Plot random data and parented the lines to the Group object.

hg = hggroup;
