## YLIM Adjust Y Axis limits of plot

Section: Handle-Based Graphics

### Usage

There are several ways to use `ylim` to adjust the Y axis limits of a plot. The various syntaxes are
```   ylim
ylim([lo,hi])
ylim('auto')
ylim('manual')
ylim('mode')
ylim(handle,...)
```

The first form (without arguments), returns a 2-vector containing the current limits. The second form sets the limits on the plot to `[lo,hi]`. The third and fourth form set the mode for the limit to `auto` and `manual` respectively. In `auto` mode, FreeMat chooses the range for the axis automatically. The `ylim('mode')` form returns the current mode for the axis (either `'auto'` or `'manual'`). Finally, you can specify the handle of an axis to manipulate instead of using the current one.

### Example

```--> x = linspace(-1,1);
--> y = sin(2*pi*x);
--> plot(x,y,'r-');
--> ylim  % what are the current limits?

ans =
-0.9999    0.9999
```

which results in

Next, we zoom in on the plot using the `ylim` function

```--> plot(x,y,'r-')
--> ylim([-0.2,0.2])
```

which results in
