How to make figure window change size

1.571 visualizzazioni (ultimi 30 giorni)
The figure window stopped responding to commands. The figure window size does not change when I try to resize it using set(gcf, [ four values]) which I have been using for sometime now. I have entered all the usual commands I normally use (from the command window) but it has no effects. It seems the window size is fixed so I need to make flexible. This started a day ago. How can I make it work again?
I use R2016a.
Thanks in advance.

As I understand, you are trying to resize your window using the following command:
>> set(gcf, [ four values])
However, you forgot to specify the name of the ‘Position’ property. For example, here’s how to set the figure to be 500 pixels by 400 pixels:
>> set(gcf, 'Position', [100, 100, 500, 400])
You can also save a handle to your figure and set the Position property using dot notation:
f = figure;
f.Position = [100 100 550 400];

'Position' refers to the inner part of the figure. How can I adress the whole Window size?
scr_siz = get(0,'ScreenSize') ;
figure(floor([scr_siz(3)/2 scr_siz(4)/2 scr_siz(3)/2 scr_siz(4)/2])) ;
The example above creates a figure in the upper right corner, but the menu and control elements are out of the screen boundaries.
