Is it possible to programmatically suppress figure roll-over menu (zoom, rotate, etc)?

7 views (last 30 days)
When a Matlab Figure is open, a roll-over graphical menu appears when the cursor is in a certain area. (See image. Suppress the contents of the red box.) Is it possible to programmatically suppress it regardless of cursor position? If so, how?

ax = gca; % your axe handle if you can get it other than gca

Not exactly the same it removes also the figure toolbar which is not the axes interactive icons you hightlight and appears when the mouse hanging over this area (what an anoying feature IMO).

This should work, but it also suppresses the fixed toolbar above the figure
f = figure;
f.ToolBar = 'none';

From Axes Properties documentation:
Data exploration toolbar, which is an AxesToolbar object. The toolbar appears at the top-right corner of the axes when you hover over it.
The toolbar buttons depend on the contents of the axes, but typically include zooming, panning, rotating, data tips, data brushing, and restoring the original view. You can customize the toolbar buttons using the axtoolbar and axtoolbarbtn functions.
If you do not want the toolbar to appear when you hover over the axes, set the Visible property of the AxesToolbar object to 'off'.
ax = gca;
ax.Toolbar.Visible = 'off';
For more information, see AxesToolbar Properties.
