Not sure I have understood fully..But here is my code


dcm_obj = datacursormode(figure);

In addition I have my updatefcn.m in my matlab directory as below..

function txt = myupdatefcn(empt,event_obj)
% Customizes text of data tips

pos = get(event_obj,'Position');
txt = {['Time: ',datestr(pos(1))],...
['Amplitude: ',datestr(pos(2))]};

the o/p is the same graph with timestamp on x axis and data on y with data tip a number and data instead time and data.
