Mouse placement of text in two-dimensional view



gtext displays a text string in the current figure window after you select a location with the mouse.

gtext('string') waits for you to press a mouse button or keyboard key while the pointer is within a figure window. Pressing a mouse button or any key places 'string' on the plot at the selected location.

h = gtext('string') returns the handle to a text graphics object after you place 'string' on the plot at the selected location.


As you move the pointer into a figure window, the pointer becomes a crosshair to indicate that gtext is waiting for you to select a location. gtext uses the functions ginput and text.
