Accepted Answer

Open the figure using “openfig” and return the “Figure” object as an output argument, such as "fig". Then use “fig” to access the underlying objects in the figure.

fig = openfig('MySavedPlot.fig')

For example, if the figure contains a line plot, you might want to get the X and Y data for the line. You can get the X and Y data using the XData and YData properties of the "Line" object. You can access the "Line" object through the "Children" property of the axes. You can access the "Axes" object through the “Children” property of the figure.

ax = fig.Children

ln = ax.Children;

X = ln.XData;

Y = ln.YData;

my plot in matlab file. actually the curve is hyperbolic. X data is heigh

Y is velocity

so I want to find E=1/2 mv^2.

I have m data it is ok to find one by one Y data. by using Data Cursor. I want find many Y data from this plot.
