cla deletes all graphics objects that have visible handles from the
current axes. The handle is visible if the
property of the object is set to
'on'. The next plot added to
the axes uses the first color and line style based on the
properties of the axes. If axes do not exist, then this command creates
Clear Current Axes
Plot two sine waves. Then, clear the line plots from the axes.
x = linspace(0,2*pi); y1 = sin(x); plot(x,y1) hold on y2 = sin(2*x); plot(x,y2)
cla clears the line plots and resets the
LineStyleIndex properties of the axes to 1. Subsequent plots start from the beginning of the color order and line style order. For example, plot another sine wave.
y3 = sin(3*x); plot(x,y3) hold off
Clear Specific Axes
Starting in R2019b, you can display a tiling of plots using the
nexttile functions. Call the
tiledlayout function to create a 2-by-1 tiled chart layout. Call the
nexttile function to create the axes objects
ax2. Add plots to both axes.
tiledlayout(2,1) ax1 = nexttile; surf(ax1,peaks) ax2 = nexttile; contour(ax2,peaks)
Clear the surface plot from the upper axes by specifying
ax1 as an input argument to
Now, reset all properties for the axes, including the camera properties that control the view, by using the optional input argument
Clear Axes and Reset All Axes Properties
Create a line plot and set the axis limits.
x = linspace(0,2*pi); y = sin(x); plot(x,y) axis([0 5 -2 2])
Clear the line plot from the axes and reset all the axes properties to their default values.
cla reset resets all properties of the current axes, except for the
