How can I avoid errors related to a datatip when deleting a figure?
4 views (last 30 days)
I have a figure that contains an axes with a plot on it. When the figure is closed, I save the plot by setting the axes parant to  and then deleting the figure.
If a user has clicked on the line to create datatips, the when I delete the figure, I get errors in MATLAB that seem to be related to the datatip. Based on the error messages, I believe these are related to the context menu of the datatip. Is there a way to avoid getting these errors?
I have tried to set the context menu of the data tip, but it seems that property is not settable:
Warning: You cannot set 'ContextMenu' property of DataTip.
I have included a very short sample that demonstrates this:
%% Create a simple plot
f = figure;
p = uipanel(f,'Units','normalized','Position',[0 0 1 1]);
ax = axes(p);
%% Interactively create a data tip
%% Delete the figure, but not the panel
p.Parent = ;
This generates the following error:
Warning: Error executing listener callback for PostSet event on UIContextMenu dynamic property in object of matlab.graphics.datatip.DataTip class:
Undefined function 'isvalid' for input arguments of type 'double'.
