plots with xlabel too long of a string for the plot

8 views (last 30 days)
hi,
i need to make a plot that has doubles for the y-axis and strings for the x-axis
1,'abc'
2,'def'
3,'ghi'
4,'jkl'
5,'mno'
...
i've been plotting using the index as the x-axis and using xlabel ('abc def ghi jkl mno ...') to give them a name. the problem is that the strings don't line up with the index and the length when plotted have gotten longer than the size of the plot. i'm thinking i could rotate the strings at a 45* angle, but i don't know how to do that). hints?

set(gca, 'XTickLabels', {'abc' 'def' 'ghi' 'jkl' 'mno' ..}) ;
xtickangle(45)
