Auto generated scatter plot takes four argument instead of two

4 views (last 30 days)
I was trying to create a scatter plot from an excel file and autogenerate the code of the figure. Everything works fine but while trying to autogenerate the code it generates four arguments in its code instead of two which I selected during creating the figure. So When I call the function to re-create the figure it shows error. How can I solve the problem. One solution is two erase 2 arguments manually from auto generated code. But what is wrong with the auto-generated code.
Thanks in advance.question_scatter_plot.png

The third input is the point size. It is safe to pass in [] to get it to use the default.
The fourth input is the color information. Unfortunately you cannot pass [] to get it to use the default. If you want to have all the points the same color, you can pass in the color specification; otherwise you should pass in a vector of values that will be used to figure out the relative position in the color map.

Thank you! But is it possible to change the properties so that by default it takes two argument (X1,Y1) instead of (X1, Y1, S1, C1) while auto-generating the code. I saw this is possible for newer version of Matlab and I am using R2014b. For both scatter and gscatter plot it takes maximum arguments and I am having problem with regenerating the figure and I need to modify the auto generated function manually.

I do not know. I have rarely used autogeneration of figure code.

Yes, it is true that in MATLAB R2014b the auto generated code for a scatter plot contains two extra input arguments. But this problem has been addressed in later releases and when I tried the same in R2019a it is generating two input arguments only. Therefore, upgrading to latest MATLAB release can help.
