Limiting UIAxes Interactivity in AppDesigner

53 views (last 30 days)
I'm using three UIAxes to display plots, and I'd like to be able to limit their interactivity such that the zoom in/out, and save/export buttons neither appear nor work. Are there commands to enable/disable these in AppDesigner?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

The first line below turns off default interactivity and the second line turns off the toolbar options.
app.UIAxes.Toolbar.Visible = 'off';

I am not aware of the option to save/export fig in App Designer.
For limiting interactivity:
ax = app.UIAxes; % change to your UIAxes handle
ax.Interactions = [panInteraction];
ax.Toolbar.Visible = 'off';

I tested the solutions here proposed, but in Matlab 2020b I get the following error: Invalid or deleted object. Error in disableDefaultInteractivity (line 12). ax.InteractionContainer.Enabled = 'off';
Do you have any suggestion?

@Ioannis, can you explain what you mean by "functions"? Do you mean interactions? What interactions still existed after executing disableDefaultInteractivity?
