camup

Set or query camera up vector

Syntax

camup
camup([up_vector])
camup('mode')
camup('auto')
camup('manual')
camup(axes_handle,...)

Description

camup returns the camera up vector setting in the current axes. The camera up vector specifies the direction that is oriented up in the scene.

camup([up_vector]) sets the up vector in the current axes to the specified value. Specify the up vector as x, y, and z components.

camup('mode') returns the current value of the camera up vector mode, which can be either auto (default) or manual.

camup('auto') sets the camera up vector mode to auto. In auto mode, [0 1 0] is the up vector of for 2-D views. This means the y-axis points up. For 3-D views, the up vector is [0 0 1], meaning the z-axis points up.

camup('manual') sets the camera up vector mode to manual. In manual mode, the value of the camera up vector does not change unless you set it.

camup(axes_handle,...) performs the set or query on the axes identified by the first argument, axes_handle. When you do not specify an axes handle, camup operates on the current axes.

Examples

Set the x-axis to be the up axis:

surf(peaks)
camup([1 0 0]);
