close all
fh = figure(1);
boxplot(data,time,'colors','k','jitter',1,'medianstyle','line',...
'whisker',2,'symbol','k.');
set(gca,'xtick',1:length(time),'xticklabel',time);
hB=findobj(fh,'Type','hggroup');
hL=findobj(hB,'Type','text');
set(hL,'Rotation',30);
I use this code to produce box plot of my data. The code works fine except for the fact that it does not rotate the xtick labels, i.e. it seems to ignore the rotate command. However, if I comment out:
set(gca,'xtick',1:length(time),'xticklabel',time);
Then the xticks are rotated, but the tick marks disappear, why does it react in this manner?
I need to find a method which allows for the Xticks to appear and the Xtick labels to be rotated, I cant seem to find a method which allows for both of these to occur.
