How to include different values for x-ticks

2 views (last 30 days)
Hi,
Suppose the following for X and Y, where x and y are some parameters measured from year 2000-2004.
x=[2 5 3 7 10]
y=[10 13 15 7 3]
On the figure I make, I want to put years (2000, ...,2004) rather than 1,....,5. How can I do that?
Thanks,
Thishan

Try this:
x=[2 5 3 7 10];
y=[10 13 15 7 3];
yrs = 2000:2004;
t = datenum([yrs' zeros(numel(yrs),4) ones(size(yrs'))]);
figure
plot(t, x, t, y)
datetick('x', 'yyyy', 'keeplimits')
That will plot the years correctly.

see release notes for tick labels available from 2016b
x=[2 5 3 7 10];
y=[10 13 15 7 3];
plot(x,y)
xticks(linspace(x(1),x(end),4)) %likewise for y-axis
xticklabels({'2001','2002','2003','2004'})

can you provide an answer that works for 2016a. I cannot update to 2016b by myself.
