I have a GUI that plots 4 axes in a GUI and I would like to clear those with a button. Tried cla(findall(0,'type','axes')) but it does not do anything. what is wrong with this command?

Hi Christof,
I think your code should work. Please make sure you are using the right figure handle.

cla clears all the children from an axes. And I assume this is what he is talking about, because nothing is happining. You can even use just cla and it should work for one single axes with multiple plots on. If he has the wrong current figure nothing will happen.

Gerd please read the question again, Christof got 4 axes and he wants to clear them all, his code finds all the axes objects but fails because cla just clears the first axes returned by findall.
