Editor for a chart, specified as a Stateflow.Editor object. The Stateflow.Editor object provides access to the graphical aspects of a chart. For example, to access the Stateflow.Editor object for a Stateflow.Chart object ch, enter:

ed = ch.Editor;


The zoomOut function modifies the ZoomFactor property of the Stateflow.Editor object. The property is limited to a minimum of 0.5 and a maximum of 10. zoomOut divides ZoomFactor by a factor of 1.3 as long as the resulting value is in this range. Otherwise, zoomOut sets ZoomFactor to the minimum value of 0.5.
