cla

Clear current axes

Syntax

cla
cla reset
cla(ax)
cla(ax,'reset')

Description

cla deletes from the current axes all graphics objects whose handles are not hidden (i.e., their HandleVisibility property is set to on).

cla reset deletes from the current axes all graphics objects regardless of the setting of their HandleVisibility property and resets all axes properties, except Position and Units, to their default values.

cla(ax) or cla(ax,'reset') clears the single axes with handle ax.

Tips

The cla command behaves the same way when issued on the command line as it does in callback routines — it does not recognize the HandleVisibility setting of callback. This means that when issued from within a callback routine, cla deletes only those objects whose HandleVisibility property is set to on.
