Hi Walter

Thanks a lot for your reply, this was very helpful.
However, the refreshdata method doesn&#8217;t seem to work with multiline plots.

%% Example:
y = rand(100,3);
h = plot(y); set(h,'YDataSource','y');
>> ??? Error using ==> refreshdata at 58
>> Could not refresh YData from 'y'.

How can this be and is there a way to work around it?
