Example -- Generating M-Code to Reproduce a Graph

Suppose you have created the following graph.

You then use the Property Editor to modify the graph to look like the following picture.

You can generate code to reproduce this graph by selecting Generate M-File from the Figure menu. MATLAB creates a function that recreates the graph and opens the generated M-File in the editor.

This feature is particularly useful for capturing property settings and other modifications made using the plot tools GUI.

Data Arguments

You must supply the data arguments t and exp(-alpha*t).*sin(5*t) to the function. Generated functions do not store the data necessary to recreate the graph.


Attempting to generate code for graphs containing a large number of graphics objects (e.g., greater than 20 plotted lines) might be impractical.
