AW: vrf Matlab graph object gui controls/ hints and tips

Question asked by VRFuser on Jun 22, 2006
One more hint for Matlab use:
There are just a few matlab samples within VEE, but hundrets of examples within matlab.
Just open a matlabscipt box in VEE, then go to the help menu for matlab. There you read a lot of hints and samples. Just copy these text-samples  and paste them to the VEE-matlabbox ( Ctrl-C and CRTL-V after marking with the mouse ), and then the sample is available in VEE....
Simple, but for a beginner not easy to find .

Hope it helps,

Thanks very much for that, exactly what I needed. I spent some time on Matlab today, you can do some nice things with Matlab script.
