Suppose your function produces the following figure
axHand = axes;
hold(axHand, 'on')
plot(rand(10), 'o')
and your GUI figure axis is named 'guiAxisHandle'. To copy everything in 'axHand' to 'guiAxisHandle',
copyobj(axHand.Children, guiAxisHandle)
Now you can delete the orginal figure.

In that case, plot directly to the GUI figure (which is the better solution anyway). If your GUI axis is named guiAxisHandle,
plot(guiAxisHandle, Xj(:,1),Xj(:,2), ...)
plot(guiAxisHandle, m(:,1),m(:,2), ...)
But first you'll need to get the handle to your gui axis. To do that, use guidata() and the handle to your GUI.
H = guidata(GUIhandle);
guiAxisHandle = H.axis1 % I don't know what your axis handled is named

thanks again dear adam
I dont know why but the result in axis is just the second plot and nothing plotted for the first plot(which is in the loop)

I don't know what axis you're referring to and I don't know what the first and second plot are nor do I know what loop your're talking about. I assume you made some changes to your code so 1) could you share the updated code and 2) try to explain what you'd like it to do and 3) what's wrong with it?
