Hello Everybody
Instead of right clicking to export multiple data tips with "Export curser info to workspace", is it possible to use a button to do the same thing?
Or is it possible to access the info of multiple data tips on another way.
Thank you very much Fritz

Here is my solution to my question:
function DataTips
% Example data
x = 0:pi/100:2*pi;
y = sin(x);
figure; plot(x,y);
% Datacursormode activ/inactiv
uicontrol('Units','normalized','Position',[0.3 0.01 0.2 0.05],...
'String','Datacursor Switch','Callback','datacursormode')
% Save button
uicontrol('Units','normalized','Position',[0.1 0.01 0.2 0.05],...
'String','Save Data Tips','Callback',@SaveDataTips)
function SaveDataTips(~,~)
dcm_obj = datacursormode(gcf);
Curser_Info = getCursorInfo(dcm_obj);
save('DataTips.mat', 'Curser_Info');
