Define an Object Deletion Callback
You can create an object deletion callback that executes code when you delete the object.
For example, create an object deletion callback for a figure so that when you delete the
figure a dialog appears asking if you want to delete all the figures. Copy the following
code to a new function file and save it as
figDelete.m either in the
current folder or in a folder on the MATLAB® search path.
function figDelete(~,~) yn = questdlg('Delete all figures?',... 'Figure Menu',... 'Yes','No','No'); switch yn case 'Yes' allfigs = findobj(get(groot,'Children'),'Type','figure' ); set(allfigs,'DeleteFcn',); delete(allfigs) case 'No' return end end
Then create two figures and assign the
figDelete function to the
Delete one of the figures and choose an option on the dialog that appears.
