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?
