This will be similer to figure properties option available if graph is plotted in a matlab script.
Like shown in below figure...we can change the lineWidth and color of chosen line graph if we plot it using matlab scripts. I want give option like this in my app developed using matlab app designer

Hi Vinayak,
You can customize the plot in a app developed in MATLAB app designer by setting the properties of the plot. For example,
- Let us assume that a line is plotted on the UIAxes in app designer as follows,
plot(app.UIAxes, 1:2:10, 1:5:25);
- The properties of the plotted line can be set as follows,
% get the handles to the plotted lines
h = app.UIAxes.Children;
% get handle of a single line plot
line1 = h(1);
% change the properties of the line plot based on user input.
line1.Color = 'r';
line1.LineWidth = 2;
User input can be taken from a 'edit field' or 'drop down'.
Here is a link to a similar question.
Hope this helps
