My script makes hundreds of clustergrams. Each time the "clustergram" function is called, it makes a figure window, which "pops up" and "steals the focus" of my computer (i.e. interrupts me while i am working on something else).
How can I plot a clustergram without making the figure?
With standard linear line plots, you just have to specify "figure('visibility', 'off');"
This does not work for clustergrams.

Try starting MATLAB with:
matlab -noFigureWindows

Okay, here is the fix (also attached):
Open clustergram.m and comment out line 416.

Wow, it must be a UNIX thing then, because I tried it on 2 different versions and it works for me. Not sure what else I can suggest.
Are you sure you are not accidentally using the built in clustergram? Change the name of the function I attached, like clustergram2 and try again?
