Simple MATLAB question

  1. Sep 29, 2007 #1
    What command would you use to maximize the plot window? I'm trying to use an m-file to create a movie by plotting something, then using M(k) = getframe, but I don't know how to maximize the window from an m-file, and if I just click on the thing on the top right corner of the window, it expands, but the image remains the same.

    You can use the figure command to control the size of the plot window. First, you find the size of your screen, as a vector in the form of [left, bottom, width, height]. Then, you set the size of the figure window for the property 'Position'. The property value for position is in the same form as the screensize property. For example,

    fullscreen = get(0,'ScreenSize');
    figure('Position',[0 -50 fullscreen(3) fullscreen(4)])

    These two lines if placed before your plot command will generate a plot window of the specified size. Subsequent images will then expand to fit the window.

    Thank you, that's what I was looking for.
