Hi
I am using 2019b and have not been able to successfully use an evenlistener on the XLim of my axes. I want to listen to changes on the size of the axes but it seems it does not work when the XLimMode = 'auto' altough there is a clear change in XLim. Looking abit more on the issue I found a workaround (https://nl.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/369377-xlim-listener-for-zoom-reset-and-linkaxes-strange-behavior) which I presume does not work anymore in this release.
addlistener(parent_ax,'XLim','PostSet',@ReposFootPrint); % This only works when XLimMode = 'manual'
This alternative using a manual property does not work given that the propety is not SetObservable
addlistener(struct(parent_ax).XAxis,'Limits','PostSet' ,@ReposFootPrint);
Any ideas on how can I use the listener in 'auto' mode?
Thank you

In Matlab r2021a and later, see this community highlight for a demonstration of the new LimitsChangedFcn that is easier to use and more reliable than applying a listener to the xlim property. The demo moves a text object any time the axis limits change. That can easily be applied to your footprints.
