plot axes on a different figure window

3 views (last 30 days)
I have one plot in one figure and 5 plot buttons in other figure. The way the program works is that each time i push a plot button it would create a plot with 5 different axes. I got the program to work however I would have to use axes(handles.Axes1) and that did not work for me since the plot figure was always up and I was unable to select any other figures. The way I fixed that is by using
cah = get(hObject,'CurrentAxes');
to get the axes or the handle. But when I try to create the new axes it creates the new axes on the second figure or the button figure.
h_ax = axes('position',[xpos, cpos(2), cpos(3)*.01666, cpos(4)]);
Is there a way to have the axes created on the first figure(plots) instead of the second figure?
Thank you

it did work... however now the figure is always on top of the others and i am unable to make changes or input values on the other windows/figures... is there a way to avoid that?

h_ax = axes('parent',hObject,...
'position',[a b c d );
