Matlab: How to plot 'text'

  1. Oct 3, 2008 #1
    I want to be able to display continually updated numbers on a plain figure environment. For example, a cheap way to do this is:

    Code (Text):

    figure(1)
    for j = 1:10
      title([ 'Hello'; num2str(j) ])
    end
     
    This prints out a two-liner ('Hello' and a number) in the title portion of the figure.

    I want the same thing, but with no actual white plot. In other words, I just want the gray figure window, and updated figures.

    How would I do this?

    Something like to following

    Code (Text):
    figure(1)
    set(gca,'Visible','off')

    for j=1:10
      text(0,0,num2str(j)
      cla
    end

    should work
