Im working with handles to create a GUI that will be using several different axes. Can the edges of the axes be removed? I've been searching through the axes properties and I havent seen anything. Can someone please help!
Thanks in advance, Matt

So something like:
axes('box','off','xtick',,'ytick',,'ztick',,'xcolor',[1 1 1],'ycolor',[1 1 1]);
line([0 1],[0 1])

The only way to remove the edge of the axes is to set the axes visibility to be off. That will also make the tick marks invisible, along with any grid lines.

Matthew, If you have the Image Processing Toolbox, go to File->Preferences->Image Processing->IMSHOW Display and uncheck the "Axes visible" box. That will eliminate any black line around the edge of your images if you use imshow() to display your image.

This took me too long to figure out. The axes are objects with lots of fun properties including visibility
ax.XAxis.Visible = 'off';
