Show separate figures next to each other, not using "subplot"

38 views (last 30 days)
Hello,
I wanted to know if there is a simple way to show multiple separate figures next to each other, without overlap. I tried using the following code:
clc;
clear;
close all;
f1 = figure('units','normalized','position',[0 0 .3 .3]);
f2 = figure('units','normalized','position',[0 0 .3 .3]);
movegui(f2,[300,0]);
f3 = figure('units','normalized','position',[0 0 .3 .3]);
movegui(f3,[600,0]);
I know that I can modify the "movegui" points, but I wanted to know if another solution exist, where I do not have to manually put in the points, and the separate figures will automatically appear next to each other without overlap.
Thanks.

It is not difficult to set the Position of the figures:
figs = [f1, f2, f3]; %as many as needed
nfig = length(figs);
frac = 1/nfig;
for K = 1 : nfig
old_pos = get(figs(K), 'Position');
set(figs(K), 'Position', [(K-1)*frac, old_pos(2), frac, old_pos(4)]);
end
but I would not call that "simple".
