Hi guys, I d' like to insert a uifigure in my livescript as in the following image:
The problem is that when I run the code, the uifigure appears in a separate window but I want it inside a box within my livescript.
The image is taken by an example livescript that is given by the mapping toolbox:
Can you help me, pleae

GIFs are image files but I could have been clearer. If you look at other figures in that demo created by uifigure, they are all inserted as images (example below).
The creators of that demo could have been clearer that they were inserting images.

Embedded figures in the Live Editor should be created with the figure() function instead of the uifigure() function.
If, for some reason a uifigure is required or you'd like to embed an existing uifigure, you can copy its content to a regular figure using the example below.
% In Live Editor (r20201a)
fig = uifigure('Visible','off'); % Produced externally, but invisible.
ax = axes(fig);
plot(ax, rand(5))
f2 = figure; % Produced internally
set(fig.Children,'Parent',f2)
delete(fig)
This won't not work for graphics objects that require the use of uifigure.

Mystery solved!
In the example livescript, the images and GIF are inserted as external files!
However, thanks to everyone for your support.
