Pixel Region tool


hfig = impixelregion(...)


impixelregion creates a Pixel Region tool associated with the image displayed in the current figure, called the target image. The Pixel Region tool opens a separate figure window containing an extreme close-up view of a small region of pixels in the target image, as shown in the following figure.

The Pixel Region rectangle defines the area of the target image that is displayed in the Pixel Region tool. You can move this rectangle over the target image using the mouse to view different regions. To get a closer view of the pixels displayed in the tool, use the zoom buttons on the Pixel Region tool toolbar or change the size of the Pixel Region rectangle using the mouse. You can also resize the Pixel Region tool itself to view more or fewer pixels. If the size of the pixels allows, the tool superimposes the numeric value of the pixel over each pixel.

To get the current position of the Pixel Region rectangle, right-click on the rectangle and select Copy Position from the context menu. The Pixel Region tool copies a four-element position vector to the clipboard. To change the color of the Pixel Region rectangle, right-click and select Set Color.

impixelregion(h) creates a Pixel Region tool associated with the object specified by the handle h. h can be a handle to a figure, axes, uipanel, or image object. If h is a handle to an axes or figure, impixelregion associates the tool with the first image found in the axes or figure.

hfig = impixelregion(...) returns hfig, a handle of the Pixel Region tool figure.


To create a Pixel Region tool that can be embedded in an existing figure window or uipanel, use impixelregionpanel.


Display an image and then create a Pixel Region tool associated with the image.
