|MATLAB Function Reference|
Saves a Handle Graphics object hierarchy to a file
saves the current figure to a file named
saves the objects identified by the array of handles
h to a file named
filename. If you do not specify an extension for
filename, then MATLAB adds the extension .
h is a vector, none of the handles in
h may be ancestors or descendents of any other handles in
overrides the default behavior, which does not save nonserializable objects. Nonserializable objects include the default toolbars and default menus. This allows revisions of the default menus and toolbars to occur without affecting existing FIG-files and also reduces the size of FIG-files. Passing the string
hgsave ensures that nonserializable objects are also saved.
Note: the default behavior of
hgload is to ignore nonserializable objects in the file at load time. This behavior can be overwritten using the
all argument with
saves the FIG-file in a format that can be loaded by versions prior to MATLAB 7.
Full Backward Compatibility
When creating a figure you want to save and use in a MATLAB version prior to MATLAB 7, use the
'v6' option with the plotting function and the
'-v6' option for
hgsave. Check the reference page for the plotting function you are using for more information.
