Display Pixel Values in Image - Alternative to `showPixelValues()`

10 views (last 30 days)
I would like to display an image and its pixel values in a similar manner to showPixelValues().
What I need is to be able to display it on an Axes Object on my own.
Namely something like:
hFigure = figure();
hAxes = axes();
DisplayImagePixelsValues(hAxes, mInputImage);
% Now set the properties of the axis.
Are there any alternatives to `showPixelValues()`? Something with more user control.
Thank You.
According to answers it seems I wasn't clear.
I don't want to show data of a current axis or something.
I want a function which the input is a matrix (Small one) and the output is a regular axis object with result of an image with text of the pixels values.
From there I'd like to be able to customize this axes to my wishes.

How about impixelinfo()?

Hi, I looked into that. But I'd prefer having something which displays in a Figure Object (For exporting purposes). Has anyone implemented something like showPixelValues() in low level?

The existing File Exchange contribution you linked to, does an imshow() without any parent, so it will display inside the current axes.
However, I discovered recently that if you imshow() and the current axes is at the default position, that imshow sets up conditions so that the axes will typically be deleted on the next graphics operation. You can avoid that by setting a non-default Position for the axes.
In any case you can easily edit the File Exchange Contribution to add a 'Parent' property to the imshow() calls and other calls.
