Is there a way to save the position property of the last active figure?
Regards, Adi
Edit: OK, Thank you for answering so quickly.

What is "last"? The last one before closing the Matlab session? The position of a dialog before closing?
For the later you can define the CloseRequestFcn and DeletFcn such that "get(FigureHandle, 'Position')" is used to get the position and store it in the format you want.

Hi Adi,
sure you can save the position of the figure.
% get current figure paper position
position = get(gcf,'PaperPosition');
Now you can save the position in a .txt file or in .mat or whatever

I assume the 'Position' property is meant.

OK Jan then
position = get(gcf,'Position');
