Dear all,

Dennis has implemented new plotting functions, they have been
committed to CVS this afternoon. The most important difference is
that of adding the option
   cfg.interactive='yes' or 'no' (default)

If you specify interactive-yes, you can make a selection, click on
it, and that selection will be plotted in a new figure. I.e. if you
start with a topoplotTFR, you can make a selection of channels, and
the average TFR of that channels will be plotted in the next figure
as a singleplotTFR. If you select a time-frequency window in that
singgleplotTFR, that selection will be plotted in a topoplotTFR. A
similar selection is possible in multiplotTFR, and the same
interactive sequence of plotting is possible for topo/multi/

In case of 3D (TFR) data, the default xparam is 'time', the yparam is
'freq' and the zparam is powspctrm or cohspctrm. In case of 2D data
(event-related field or power spectra), the xparam is either 'time'
or 'freq', and the zparam is 'avg' or 'powspctrm'. Please read the
documentation of each of the functions for the new options.

best regards,
Robert & Dennis
