Hey
I want to create a table next to a graph
Is it possible?
Example code:
clc, clear
LastName = {'Smith';'Johnson';'Williams';'Jones';'Brown'};
Age = [38;43;38;40;49];
Height = [71;69;64;67;64];
Weight = [176;163;131;133;119];
T = table(Age,Height,Weight,'RowNames',LastName)
%I want to see a picture next to the table in fig
figure(1)
subplot(121);
u=uitable('Data',T{:,:},'ColumnName',T.Properties.VariableNames,...
'RowName',T.Properties.RowNames,'Units', 'Normalized', 'Position',[0, 0, 1, 1]);
% It does not work :(
subplot(122);
x = 0:pi/100:2*pi;
y = sin(x);
plot(y,x)
% I want like this but With a table
figure(2)
subplot(121);
x = 0:pi/100:2*pi;
y = sin(x);
plot(x,y)
subplot(122);
x = 0:pi/100:2*pi;
y = sin(x);
plot(y,x)
TNX :)

A table object can't be put in a figure and, AFAIK, it's not possible to redirect command window output to a figure other than by preparing an image independently of the content desired.
But, you can put the uitable on subplot; you used wrong coordinate system -- I reoriented it to a 2x1 format instead of 1x2, but if your data fit more better the other way, you can easily revert.
hAx=subplot(2,1,1); % set subplot area
hUI=uitable('Data',T{:,:},'ColumnName',T.Properties.VariableNames,...
'RowName',T.Properties.RowNames,'Units', 'Normalized', 'Position',hAx.Position);% set table on top
delete(hAx) % no need for the axes
hAx=subplot(2,1,2); % make the other axes
plot(x,y) % and plot into them
results in Your table doesn't have enough data to take up the whole area of the axes, but you can see the outline of the area the top axes laid out.
I didn't try with nexttile; I presume same thing will happen.

You didn't keep the two axes handles but wiped out the first...look at my code more carefully.
