How to obtain handlers to line objects from a legend object?

34 views (last 30 days)
Is it possible to obtain the line-handlers from a legend-handler? Example:
hLines = plot(x1, y1, x2, y2, ...);
hLegend = legend(hLines, {'Text1', 'Text2', ...});
The figure, axes, lines and legend may now be changed via code or GUI. Some plotted lines are not included in the legend. Is there a way to obtain the lines that corresponds to the legend?
Best regards

In R2014b and later, if you have a legend, hLegend, that is displaying text for only some of the lines you passed in (for example you passed in too few text strings), and you wish to find out which line handles do have entries in the legend, then
hLegend.PlotChildren

Thanks!
This is exactly what I need. It seems to be completly undocumented in R2017b.
