save several plots in seperate files within a live script

9 次查看(过去 30 天)
hello there,
i have a live script which plots the results at its end. it creates a new figure and title and so on. now i want to save all the figures. the figures are being created in a function, cause there is a lot of different data, but more or less the same plot.
i have found 2 solutions so far, whcih sadly dont work.
the first solution i used had the problem that it doesnt save it according to the names. they just have no name and there are overwriting each other. another problem is, that out ofnowhere it gave me the error that the folder is incorrect. i made another folder for the plots and the folder does exist, matlab knows the folder i added it.
the 2nd solution gave me the following error message

thats odd, i had that error seen before i had sent the post, dunno what happened
% Error using
% Unable to create output file '.\.png', Invalid argument.
% Error in print (line 71)
% pj = pj );
% Error in saveas (line 181)
% print( h, name, ['-d' dev{i}] )
needed to comment it out, otherweise its not displayed.
exportgraphics is new for me, thanks. want to save them as jpg or png, not as fig.

"the 2nd solution" works fine for me. You have probably edited the code wich resulted in an error. Note that you can copy and paste the itire solution (try that in a new .m or .mlx file) and do not have to change anything to get it to work.
Code from "the 2nd solution":
path = pwd ; % mention your path
myfolder = 'myfolder' ; % new folder name
folder = mkdir([path, filesep, myfolder]) ;
path = [path, filesep, myfolder];
for k = 1:10
temp=[path, filesep, 'fig', num2str(k), '.png'];
Your error-message seems to indicate that you have put a wrong path into the saveas()-function. Check the documentation for it for further information.
If you path is '.\.png' like the error-message suggests, your path is missing a filename. A valid path for example would be:
But you have to change the filename during the loop. Otherwise your file will be overwritten (this is also done in the solution above).

Recommended style changes:
mypath = pwd ; % mention your path
myfolder = 'myfolder' ; % new folder name
folder = fullfile(mypath, myfolder);
if ~isdir(fullfolder); mkdir(folder); end
for k = 1:3 % <--- Enter right amount of figures (3 in this case)
figure(k); % select figure
temp = fullfile(path, "fig" + k + ".png");
saveas(gca, temp);

i said in a response that i did post the error, but for some reason its not been posted, it was there before i had sent the post. thats why i posted it later, but commented out, or else it would post it. i dont know what i did wrong, pretty new to that, so sorry for the inconvience.
i did tried compose and exportgraphics so and it works nicely.
function plot_PEM_gas_flow_result(Sim_CA,Sim_AN,VariableName,unit)
%plot a variable from Flow-Field Calculation for anode and cathode within
%one diagram
yyaxis left
plot(Sim_CA,'DisplayName',' Cathode')
yyaxis right
plot(Sim_AN,'DisplayName',' Anode')
grid on
str = compose(VariableName + ".png");
i also used your code just now and it works just fine. im still wondering though, why there is no name? i mean it now has one, becuase you catch the case if there is no name. isnt the name the title of the graph ? i thought so.

Don't confuse Name and Title. The name is given to the figure when it is initialized (see following Code). The Title is the "Title" of the Axis-object, which is a child of the figure-object. If you would initialize all figures like seen below, the code from the solution1 should work. But by default no name is given to a figure.
fig1 = figure("Name", "myName");
ans = 'myName'
fig2 = figure;
ans = 0×0 empty char array
And nice to see that you found a way it works for you
