Scrolling Figure Demo

version 1.0 (2.12 KB) by

Make multiple plots in a figure and scroll through them.

This function is an adaptation of a demo published by Steven Lord that let you add a slider to an axes. This function shows you how to set up a slider in a figure that will scroll through tiled axes.

This functionality is very usefull in situations where you have a lot of information to plot but would rather not have a lot of figures open.

The only negative thing that I have noticed is that on slower computers it can take awhile to scroll if there are a LOT of data points on individual plots.

This can also be easily modified to show more than 1 row at a time ... but I'll leave that to you.

I adapted the code as follows:
- create a separate class with all GUI parameters (like cols, rows, aspect ratio, padding, margins, etc);
- change Units from 'normalized' to 'pixels';
- adapt axes position not to the screen resolution & figure dimension, but to the panel dimension, so you can put more information (like control buttons) where you want in the same figure;
