The Axes Toolbar of a uiaxes object created in App Designer appears by default with the following buttons: Export, Pan, Zoom In, Zoom Out, Restore View. Is there any way to provide the default functionality you get from the Axes Toolbar created when you call the plot function from an m-file or the command line? I want to provide the Brush and Data Cursor buttons and the functionality you get when right-clicking in the axes object after selecting a button from the toolbar (Export Cursor Data to Workspace, Horizontal/Vertical/Unconstrained Pan and Zoom, etc.). I do realize you can zoom in horizontally and vertically in the uiaxes object by dragging the cursor in a straight line. Double-clicking in the axes object normally restores the view, but that functionality also seems to be missing.
I attempted to create my own toolbar with the axtoolbar command as follows:
The axtoolbar property does not appear to be useable within App Designer. Is this the case? If so, is there any way to provide the standard Axes Toolbar functionality I described in App Designer?

I never found a solution and have not had time to revisit the issue. Check the answer provided by Payas below. It sounded like at least some of what I was looking for may be available in R2020a, but while I now have access to R2020a, I have not had an opportunity to install and use it for any task.

Hi Matt,
Starting from MATLAB R2020a, axes toolbar of UIAxes in App Designer supports functionalities like persistent data tips, brushing data points and ‘export to workspace’ option in context menu. For more details, please refer ‘App Building’ section in release notes of R2020a.
Hope this helps!

Same problem here. Data cursor is left out. Did anyone solve the issue?
