A rotate interaction allows you to rotate a chart without having to select any
buttons in the axes toolbar. To enable chart rotation, set the
Interactions property of the axes to a
rotateInteraction object. When this interaction is enabled, you can rotate
a chart by dragging it.
To enable multiple interactions, set the
Interactions property to an
array of objects.
r = rotateInteraction creates a rotate interaction object.
Create a surface plot. Get the current axes and replace the default interactions with the rotate and data tip interactions. Then hover over the surface to display data tips. Drag to rotate the plot.
surf(peaks) ax = gca; ax.Interactions = [rotateInteraction dataTipInteraction];
In most cases, the axes have a default set of interactions which depend on the type of chart you are displaying. You can replace the default set with a new set of interactions, but you cannot access or modify any of the interactions in the default set.
