Displaying a table in a figure

Posted by Michelle Hirsch,

I’m often asked how to include a table of numbers in a figure. While it’s possible to use an array of edit boxes, I’ve always recommended using an ActiveX spreadsheet control as an easier (and more professional looking) solution. Thing is, when I went to actually do it… read more >>

I do a lot of seminars and talk to a lot of people about what they are trying to do in MATLAB. One of the more common questions is how to get a surface plot from their data when the data is not on a regular grid. Zain, here at... read more >>

Instrument Drivers

Posted by Michelle Hirsch,

You all know that Release 14 was just released (which will probably put me out of the File Exchange business since the new features make my most popular files irrelevant). One of the things I’m most excited about is the introduction of Instrument Drivers to the Instrument Control Toolbox…. read more >>

Interactive Movie Player
