h = vfill(xbounds,ColorSpec,varargin) creates fill objects bounded by the values xbounds. ColorSpec defines the color of the fill objects. Optional varargin can be used to set edgecolor, transparency, etc.

Syntax

hfill(scalarValue)
hfill([ystart yend])
hfill([ystart1,yend1,ystart2,yend2,...,ystartn,yendn])
hfill(...,ColorSpec)
hfill(...,ColorSpec,'PatchProperty','PatchValue')
hfill(...,'bottom')
h = hfill(...)

Description

hfill(scalarValue) places a horizontal line along y = scalarValue.

hfill([ystart yend]) fills a horizontal shaded region bounded by ystart and yend.

hfill([ystart1,yend1,ystart2,yend2,...,ystartn,yendn]) fills multiple horizontal regions.

hfill(...,ColorSpec) defines the face color of the patch(es) created by hfill. ColorSpec can be one of the Matlab color names (e.g. 'red'), abbreviations (e.g. 'r', or rgb triplet (e.g. [1 0 0]). ColorSpec may also be 'gray'.

hfill(...,ColorSpec,'PatchProperty','PatchValue') defines patch properties such as 'EdgeColor' and 'FaceAlpha'.

hfill(...,'bottom') places the newly created patch(es) at the bottom of the uistack.

h = hfill(...) returns handle(s) of newly created patch objects.
