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

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
ScreenSize property value is a four-element
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
Use dot notation to query or modify
a particular figure's property. For example,

f to inches.
Figures can be docked in the desktop. 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:
