Description
            Modifying any of the .figure_position, .figure_size and .axes_size properties of
a docked graphical figure moves or/and resizes the whole Scilab Desktop!
Testing if a Figure is docked before modifying these properties allows to avoid
such bad effect. See http://bugzilla.scilab.org/11476

Any comment, scoring and bug report is welcome here-below.

-->isDocked

function [yn] = isDocked(fh)

 Tests whether a (set of) graphical figure is docked to Scilab desktop

CALLING SEQUENCES
      isDocked     // displays this help
 yn = isDocked(fh)

PARAMETERS
 fh: figure's handle or matrix of figures handles
 yn: boolean or matrix of booleans, with the sizes of fh

DESCRIPTION
 yn(i) is set to %T (true) if fh(i) is a figure docked to the Scilab desktop.
  It is set to %F otherwise.
 isDocked(..) allows avoiding to reset figures properties such that
  .figure_position, .figure_size and .axes_size that all affect the
  whole Scilab desktop when the related figure is docked.

EXAMPLE
 clf
 plot2d()
 // Then please dock this figure by hand
 f = gcf();
 // We resize the figure only if it is not docked:
 if ~isDocked(f), f.figure_size = [700,650], end

 // Now unexpectedly resizing the whole desktop:
 s = f.figure_size;
 f.figure_size = [900,800];  // :(
 // Restoring the desktop's size
 f.figure_size = s;

 // Testing a matrix of handles:
 f2 = scf(); surf()       // first, create a new undocked figure
 isDocked([f f2 ; f2 f])  // then, do the test (here useless demo;)
