But an error message is thrown without changing the column size;
In this example I simply refreshdata without changing the data and an error is thrown.

X = 1:100;
Y = repmat(X,3,1);
h = plot(X,Y);
set(h,'YDataSource','Y'); set(h,'XDataSource','X')
??? Error using ==> refreshdata at 58
Could not refresh YData from 'Y'.
