getpoints

Return points that define animated line

Description

example

[x,y] = getpoints(an) returns the x and y coordinates for the points that define the animated line specified by an. Create an animated line with the animatedline function.

[x,y,z] = getpoints(an) returns the coordinates for the 3-D animated line specified by an. If the line does not have any z values, then getpoints returns z as a vector of zeros the same length as x and y.

Examples

Create an animated line with 10 points. Then, return the points stored in the animated line.

h = animatedline(1:10,1:10);

[x,y] = getpoints(h)
x = 1×10

     1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9    10

y = 1×10

Input Arguments

collapse all

AnimatedLine object. Create an AnimatedLine object using the animatedline function.

Output Arguments

First coordinate values that define the animated line, returned as a vector. For Cartesian axes, the first coordinate is x-axis position. For geographic axes, the first coordinate is latitude in degrees.

Second coordinate values that define the animated line, returned as a vector. For Cartesian axes, the second coordinate is y-axis position. For geographic axes, the second coordinate is longitude in degrees.

Third coordinate values that define the 3-D animated line, returned as a vector. For Cartesian axes, the third coordinate is z-axis position.
