When using MATLAB on windows platforms one could write MEX files to access the WIN32 API functions. However such a tutorial is difficult to find.
I decided to post an example with a commented C-MEX file that will demonstrate how to accurately find the windows handle of a MATLAB figure window and then do some API command on it.
For simplicity I selected the 'ShowWindow' API because it can be used to solve the 'common' figure maximization problem. (maximizefigure.m sample included)
