Just to add a note that Matlab's rotate3d also has two related utility functions: isAllowAxesRotate and setAllowAxesRotate.

The function to see the public properties of an object is properties() but it is not available in Octave. The error you report with get() has, I think, more to do with missing features of the handle class, e.g. it doesn't work either with inputParser():

error: octave_base_value::array_value(): wrong type argument 'object'
error: get: H must be a graphics handle

I've nevertheless modified Rotate3D to have a better behavior there.

To view which properties are available returns an error:

error: 'prop' undefined near line 27 column 15
error: called from
    get at line 27 column 7

I have made some small adjustments to rotate3d.m for a better compatibility with Matlab. I also started writing a class (so far called Rotate3D) for the situation where rotate3d returns an object.

It allows to do this:

hfig = figure;
hrot = rotate3d (hfig);
set(hrot, "Enable", "on");

I noticed that there was already some interest to update rotate3d:


What would be a good name for the Rotate3D class and where should it be stored in Octave (eg somewhere in +octave/+internal/+graphics/Rotate3D.m)?
