showplottool('off','tool')
showplottool('toggle','tool')
showplottool(figure_handle,...)

Description

showplottool('tool') shows the specified plot tool on the current figure. 'tool' can be one of these values:

  • 'figurepalette'

  • 'plotbrowser'

  • 'propertyeditor'

showplottool('on','tool') shows the specified plot tool on the current figure.

showplottool('off','tool') hides the specified plot tool on the current figure.

showplottool('toggle','tool') toggles the visibility of the specified plot tool on the current figure.

showplottool(figure_handle,...) operates on the specified figure instead of the current figure.

Note

When you dock, undock, resize, or reposition a plotting tool and then close it, it will still be configured as you left it the next time you open it. There is no command to reset plotting tools to their original, default locations.

Create a simple plot and open the property editor.

plot(1:10);
showplottool('propertyeditor')

The Property Editor below a figure window
