# MATLAB

From Rizzo_Lab

To access the lab version of MATLAB log on to ringo.ams.sunysb.edu and type the following:

matlab -nojvm

This opens MATLAB without using the java interface (the virtual machine).

## Making large plots

First create a new figure, maximize it. Add these commands after the plot() and before making labels and printing. This will create a 1000 x 1000 px plot

set(gcf,'Position',[1 1 1000 1000]); set(gcf,'PaperPositionMode','auto'); set(gca,'FontSize',12);

Note that if you have a multi-paneled graph each panel have its own handle.

## subpanel in a panel

figure(1) h = uipanel subplot(1,1,1,'Parent',h),plot([1:.1:10],sin([1:.1:10]/10*pi)) h2 = uipanel('Parent',h,'position',[0.4108 0.4096 0.2090 0.2157]) subplot(1,1,1,'Parent',h2),plot([1:.1:10],sin([1:.1:10]/10*pi))

make the background white.

set(h,'BackgroundColor',[1 1 1]) set(h,'ShadowColor',[1 1 1]) set(h2,'ShadowColor',[1 1 1]) set(h2,'BackgroundColor',[1 1 1])
