addToolbarExplorationButtons

Add data exploration buttons to figure toolbar

Description

example

addToolbarExplorationButtons(fig) adds the data exploration buttons to the figure toolbar for the specified figure.

In R2018b, the data exploration buttons were moved from the figure toolbar to the axes toolbar. In most cases, you do not need to use this function. However, if you have code that relies on the buttons appearing in the figure toolbar, you can use the addToolbarExplorationButtons and removeToolbarExplorationButtons functions to control the appearance of the buttons in the figure toolbar.

Examples
