I have a GUI I made with handles.axis1 and handles.axis2, I'm using the fill functions and find that:
fill(handles.axis2,X,Y,C)
Is not working, it says that there is not enough inputs. But If I use:
fill(X,Y,C)
It will produce the plot on the handles.axis1. I need it to be on handles.axes2 and not on handles.axis1. If anyone knows why it does not except the axis as the first variable in, or if they found a way around it please let me know! Thank you

Fill does not accept an axes as its first parameter. Try using
fill(X, Y, C, 'Parent', handles.axis2)

Although beginners all seem to be allergic to reading the documentation, the fill page actually shows its correct input arguments. So while the title of the question is "fill(ax,X,Y,C) not working", actually it was not being used according to the documentation.

Though the fill documentation does not happen to have an example of using the Parent property; knowing about that property requires a bit of experience with the Handle Graphics system that I would not expect people to pick up immediately.
