Can you pause a figure without pausing the code execution?

13 views (last 30 days)
I am using the following code to display an image.
splash = imshow('splash.png');
pause(5)
delete(splash)
After 5 seconds I want the figure to delete. Using pause though holds the execution of the matlab script for x amount of seconds. Is there a command/way you can hold the figure, in my case, for 5 seconds while having the script run in the background uninterrupted?

You can use timer() with a one-shot event to delete the figure.
