a = set(obj)

b = set(obj, name)


Sets the attribute value of a plot object. Plot objects include line, plot area, plot window, and text objects. set(obj, name1, value1, ..., nameN, valueN) sets the attribute values you specify for the plot object referenced by obj. If you do not specify an attribute name and value, LabVIEW returns all attributes and possible values for the plot object referenced by obj. If you do not specify an attribute value, LabVIEW returns all possible values of the attribute specified by name.



Name Description
obj Specifies the reference to the plot object.
name Specifies the name of the attribute. name is a string.
value Specifies the value of the attribute.


Name Description
a Returns the names and possible values of the attributes. a is a string.
b Returns the possible values of the specified attribute.

X = [0:0.01:1];
Y = X.*X;
obj = plot(X, Y);
set(obj, 'Color', 'b', 'LineStyle', '--');

obj = axes;
b = set(obj, 'NextPlot')

t = 0:0.1:2*pi;
obj = plot(t(1), sin(t(1)));
hold on
obj1 = plot(t(1), sin(t(1)), 'ro');
axis([0, 2*pi, -1, 1])
for i = 2:length(t);
     xx = get(obj, 'XData');
     yy = get(obj, 'YData');
     set(obj, 'XData', [xx, t(i)], 'YData', [yy, sin(t(i))]);
     set(obj1, 'XData', t(i), 'YData', sin(t(i)));
