Hello,
I want to follow a point by plotting him every time. I want just plot the point not all previous points.
I've tried to use this code, but it gives all points.
x = 1:0.01:25;
y = sin(x);
n = numel(x);
%figure;
for i = 1:n
h=plot(x(1:i),y(1:i),'+r');
xlim([0 25]);
ylim([-1.1 1.1]);
%refreshdata(figure,'base')
pause(0.001);
% drawnow;
delete(h)
end
How can I fix the problem ?

ylim([-1.1 1.1]);
pause(0.001);
delete(h)

Another computationally efficient approach is to create a single line object and update its XData and YData properties
x = 1:0.01:25;
y = sin(x);
n = numel(x);
%figure;
h = plot(nan, '+r');
xlim([0 25]);
ylim([-1.1 1.1]);
hold on
for i = 1:n
h.XData = x(i);
h.YData = y(i);
%refreshdata(figure,'base')
pause(0.001);
end
