# gdrawnow

Below is a demonstration of the features of the `gdrawnow` function

## Contents

## Syntax

`gdrawnow;`

## Description

The `gdrawnow` function is similar to the `drawnow` command but also activates the `vcw` widget if present for the current figure window. Note that activation of `vcw` also hides the axis interactive toolbars.

See also: `drawnow`

## Examples

```
clear; close all; clc;
```

## Calling `gdrawnow` equivalent to `drawnow`

Some example data

[X,Y,Z]=peaks(25);

figure; %Opens default MATLAB figure without vcw button surf(X,Y,Z); %Visualize something in an axis axisGeom; %Set axis options for geometry viewing gdrawnow; %Fully equivalent to drawnow

## Calling `gdrawnow` to drawnow and also activate existing `vcw` button

cFigure; %Opens a cFigure window which contains the vcw button surf(X,Y,Z); %Visualize something in an axis axisGeom; %Set axis options for geometry viewing gdrawnow; %drawnow + vcw activation

## Calling `gdrawnow` to drawnow and activate `vcw` repeatedly

This example shows repeated calls to `gdrawnow` for a figure window e.g. when creating subplots.

cFigure; for i=1:1:2 for j=1:1:2 q=sub2ind([2,2],i,j); subplot(2,2,q); hold on; surf(X,Y,Z); colorbar; axisGeom; gdrawnow; %drawnow + vcw activation end end
