The present code is a Matlab function that provides programmatically generation of a custom made datatip on a given Matlab figure (e.g. 2D and 3D lines, 3D surfaces, etc.). The function is very suitable for dynamic (animated) plots. The user can:
1) set the datatip position anywhere on the plot via data indexes;
2) set a custom X, Y and Z datatip labels;
3) hold the previously placed datatips.
Two examples are given in order to clarify the usage of the function. For convenience, the input and output arguments are given in the beginning of the function.
Warning: One must uncomment the code line 55 for Matlab R2014a and earlier.
