I would like to colour each individual bar with a different colour. Any assistance, please?
My example below:
CoverageArea = [101.1303,0,114.9316,45.2112,116.5973,95.8953];
bar(CoverageArea)
ylabel('Coverage area (m²)');
xticklabels({'\Phi_1_/_2 = 15, (\phi & \psi) =\pm 10','\Phi_1_/_2 = 15, (\phi & \psi) =\pm 40','\Phi_1_/_2 = 30, (\phi & \psi) =\pm 10','\Phi_1_/_2 = 30, (\phi & \psi) =\pm 40','\Phi_1_/_2 = 60, (\phi & \psi) =\pm 10','\Phi_1_/_2 = 60, (\phi & \psi) =\pm 40'})
grid on;

grid on;
colors = get(gca(),'ColorOrder') % use whatever colors you want here
colors = 7×3

set(h,'FaceColor','flat','CData',colors(1:6,:)) % set the bars' colors
