Hi. I have a simple GUI where a signal is loaded from a file, and then displayed in a GUI axes. I want to let the user click somewhere on the signal, get the x coordinate, and then draw a vertical line at this point. I have been trying to do this using the following code, but it has some issues:
% load signal....
dcm_obj = datacursormode;
c_info = getCursorInfo(dcm_obj);
x = c_info.DataIndex
line([x x], [ min(ylim) max(ylim) ], 'color', 'r', 'linewidth',3,'LineStyle',':')
The issues with this are: 1. once the user clicks on the signal to get the data index (x value), if they click again it does not work since ive exited the waitforbuttonpress section of code. I therefore have to reload the entire signal to choose another x value/draw another line in a new location.
2. If i click anywhere other than on the actual signal, I get an error.
Can someone please help me with this? Id ideally like to be able to click multiple times on the axes displaying the signal and each time it should allow me to get the data index and draw a line there.
Also, is there a way to do this just by clicking somewhere in the axes object rather than having to click exactly on the plotted signal?
thanks for the help!!
