The present code is a Matlab function that provides interactive sliding of a plot along its x-axis using the keyboard arrows. The function is very suitable for organizing of visualization and inspection of data with big number of columns (vectors or matrices), so 2D and 3D plots can be sliding along its x-axis with given span and step-size. The user can navigate through the x-axis via the keyboard arrows as follows:
- left and right arrows allow navigation backwards and forwards along the x-axis, respectively, with given user-defined step-size (hop size; x-axis' advance);
- down and up arrows allow navigation backwards and forwards along the x-axis with 10 times the preset step-size;
- “Home” key – backwards to the beginning of the x-axis;
- “End” key – forwards to the end of the x-axis.
The additional command “slidingtogether” provides simultaneously sliding of several subplots, if there is a need. The “slidingtogether” command could not be used independently but only in conjunction with the developed “slidingplot” function.
Three examples are given in order to clarify the usage of the function. For convenience, the input and output arguments are given in the beginning of the function.
