COPYAXES - copy a handle object axes inpt

COPYAXES(SOURCE, DESTINATION) - copy axes from SOURCE to DESTINATION

COPYAXES(..., isInSubplot) - if the destination is in a subplot figure
(default false).

COPYAXES(..., isLegend) - if the axes is a legend (only if isInSubplot is
true) (default false)

EXAMPLE: Copy a axes with plot

plot([1:0.1:2*pi], sin([1:0.1:2*pi]));
title('sin function')
xlabel('x')
ylabel('sin(x)')
ax = gca;

figure;
ax_new = axes;
copyaxes(ax, ax_new)

EXAMPLE: Copy a axes with bar

bar(rand(10,5),'stacked');
title('bar stacket function')
xlabel('x label')
ylabel('y label')
ax = gca;

figure;
ax_new = axes;
copyaxes(ax, ax_new)

EXAMPLE: Copy a axes and legend (the legend is an axes object)

plot([1:0.1:2*pi], sin([1:0.1:2*pi]));
title('sin function')
xlabel('x')
ylabel('sin(x)')
lg = legend('sin');
ax = gca;

figure;
ax_new = axes;
lg_new = axes;
copyaxes(ax, ax_new)
copyaxes(lg, lg_new)

EXAMPLE: Copy an axes with a surface in a subplot.
Colormap is a figure property, not axes property.

k = 5;
n = 2^k-1;
[x,y,z] = sphere(n);
c = hadamard(2^k);
surf(x,y,z,c);
axis equal
title('sphere')
xlabel('x label')
ylabel('y label')
zlabel('z label')
ax = gca;
colormap([1 1 0; 0 1 1])

figure;
ax_new = subplot(2,2,1);
copyaxes(ax, ax_new, true)
colormap([1 1 0; 0 1 1])

EXAMPLE: Copy a surface in a subplot

[x,y] = meshgrid([-2:.4:2]);
Z = x.*exp(-x.^2-y.^2);
fh = figure('Position',[350 275 400 300],'Color','w');
ax = subplot(1,2,1);
set(ax, 'Color',[.8 .8 .8],'XTick',[-2 -1 0 1 2],...
'YTick',[-2 -1 0 1 2]);
sh = surface('XData',x,'YData',y,'ZData',Z,...
'FaceColor',get(ax,'Color')+.1,...
'EdgeColor','k','Marker','o',...
'MarkerFaceColor',[.5 1 .85]);
view(3)

ax_new = subplot(1,2,2);
copyaxes(ax, ax_new, true)

EXAMPLE: Copy an hist in a subplot

x = -4:0.1:4;
y = randn(500,1);
figure;
ax = subplot(1,2,1);
hist(y,x)

ax_new = subplot(1,2,2);
copyaxes(ax, ax_new, true)

EXAMPLE: Copy an pie in a subplot

x = [1 3 0.5 2.5 2];
explode = [0 1 0 0 0];
figure;
colormap jet
ax = subplot(1,2,1);
pie(x,explode)

ax_new = subplot(1,2,2);
copyaxes(ax, ax_new, true)

EXAMPLE: Copy an figure in a subplot

load earth
figure
ax = subplot(1,2,1);
image(X); colormap(map)

ax_new = subplot(1,2,2);
copyaxes(ax, ax_new, true)
