Is there a way thru which i can dynamically create pop-up menus,
example:- I have a graph with plots of sind(1:360),cosd(1:360) in it,

similarly if i hv n children can i get n popupmenus,one for each child

Use uicontrol to create a popup menu dynamically:
for i = 1:10 % [EDITED, loop added]
uicontrol('Style', 'popupmenu', ...
'String', {'Item 1', 'Item2', 'Item 3'}, ...
'Units', 'pixels', ...
'Position', [10, i*30, 120, 24]);

I do not want to create strings in pop-up menu dynamically,i want to create pop-up menu itself dynamically.
In the example i gave in question(sind(1:360)&cosd(1:360)),i want two popupmenus with strings in them being static('r','g','b'...).
If i have another graph with 3 plots in it i want 3 popupmenus with strings in it same(rgb-colors).
I hope you understand,if i have graph with 10 plots in it,i want 10 popup menus with each popup menu to change color of each axeschildren
