I know my question could sound strange at the first glance. Here I would like explain my question in more details. My MATLAB code goes as follows.
x = linspace(0, 2*pi, 11);
fig1 = figure('Name', 'A');
fig2 = figure('Name', 'B');
ax = subplot(1,2,1);
plot(x, sin(x.^2));
I have two figures, named A and B. The parent of ax will be fig2 by default. The question is that how to set the parent of ax to be fig1 rather than fig2 explicitly when I create ax? I know I could change the parent of ax after I create using ax.Parent = fig1, i.e.,
x = linspace(0, 2*pi, 11);
fig1 = figure('Name', 'A');
fig2 = figure('Name', 'B');
ax = subplot(1,2,1);
plot(x, sin(x.^2));
ax.Parent = fig1;
Thank you!

ax = subplot(1,2,2,'Parent',fig1)
