Send RasMol script commands to Molecule Viewer window


evalrasmolscript(FigureHandle, Command)


FigureHandleFigure handle to a molecule viewer returned by the molviewer function.

Any of the following:

  • String specifying one or more RasMol script commands. Use a ; to separate commands.

  • Character array or cell array containing strings specifying RasMol script commands.

  • String specifying a file name or a path and file name of a text file containing Jmol script commands. If you specify only a file name, that file must be on the MATLAB® search path or in the MATLAB Current Folder.


evalrasmolscript(FigureHandle, Command) sends the RasMol script commands specified by Command to FigureHandle, the figure handle of a Molecule Viewer window created using the molviewer function.


  1. Use the molviewer function to create a figure handle to a Molecule Viewer window.

    FH = molviewer('2DHB')
  2. Use the evalrasmolscript function to send script commands to the molecule viewer that change the background to black and spin the molecule.

    evalrasmolscript(FH, 'background white; spin')
