Create figure window
h = figure(...)
For a list of properties, see Figure Properties.
figure creates a new figure
window using default property values. This new figure window becomes
the current figure, and it displays on top of all other figures on
the screen. The title of the figure is an integer value that is not
already used by an existing figure. MATLAB® saves this integer
value in the figure's
a new figure window using specific property values. For a list of
available properties, see Figure Properties. MATLAB uses
default values for any properties that you do not explicitly define

h = figure(...) returns
the handle to the figure object.
To create a figure window that is one quarter the size of your
screen and is positioned in the upper left corner, use the root object's
to determine the size. The
value is a four-element vector:
[left bottom width height].
scrsz = get(groot,'ScreenSize'); figure('Position',[1 scrsz(4)/2 scrsz(3)/2 scrsz(4)/2])
To position the full figure window including the menu bar, title
bar, tool bars, and outer edges, use the
in the same manner.
You can add your own title to a figure by setting the
and turning off the
figure('Name','Simulation Plot Window','NumberTitle','off')
You can set default figure properties only on the

The current figure is the target for graphics output. There
are two ways to make a figure
h the current figure.
Make the figure
h current, visible,
and displayed on top of other figures:
Make the figure
h current, but
do not change its visibility or stacking with respect to other figures:
