Hello Everyone,
I am looking to design an interactive plot for a function f(x,y). I would like to add a slider for x and y that would change the plot in realtime. I am also open to do this using GUI. Let me know what might be the better approach to this problem. Plot should be f vs x or f vs y.

khush - I think the best approach is to use GUIDE to create your GUI with an axes and two slider (one for each of x and y). The callback for the slider could then be used to update the function as drawn on your axes. See to get you started on creating your GUI.

The GUIDE design environment will be removed in a future release of MATLAB, I recommend using App Designer instead.

App Designer is the recommended enviroment for building apps in MATLAB. To get started, you can watch this video:
