Advanced hline and vline

Draws horizontal/vertical lines in graphs. Accept axes handle and allows user to specify label posit

I needed to draw some vertical markers to my plots in GUI, so I checked out Brandon Kuczenski's hline/vline submission. However it doesn't accept axes handle as an input argument.
Getting around by switching with 'gca' causes weird behavior due to uncertain timing in GUI. So I reverse engineered the basic idea in his code and added in a few degrees of freedom. I hope this will help other MATLAB GUI programmers.

I haven't done any extensive testing as I'm busy with with my project on hand. Please send any suggestions, bug reports to Thanks!

I'd add at the end:
if (nargout == 0), clear lineHandles; end




Added textHandle as an optional output and yLimits for vline() and xLimits for hline() as optional inputs.


Refactored to enable linePropertiesList, textPropertiesList, isLineColorSynchronizedWithText
