dockable figure in Matlab GUI?

Posted on 2008-11-04
Last Modified: 2016-02-10

I have several panels(think they are called figure in matlab).
I want to call those panels and dock it below one of the main panel.
The exact thing i want to do is similar to calling property editor/plot browser from the view menu in line plotting demo of Graphics demo.
I looked at the Line Plotting m file, hndlaxis.m but I didn't see how those property editor or plot browser panels get called.
Any idea??
Can you show me an example how it is done.

    This can be done so easily thanks to MATLAB Central. There are two working samples available for download:
    MATLAB Central - File detail - setFigDockGroup
    MATLAB Central - File detail - Manage and Dock Figures into Group
    In addition, a free powerful toolbox is available here:

    Thanks so much I will check them out when I get home.

    I have one more question.

    You know about the property Editor, browse editor(not sure if this is correct term) one you can call them from the VIEW menu.

    I want to do similar things with my panels.

    Where can I find information how those property editor and browser editor are called from the VIEW menu??

    Thanks so much.
