texlabel

Format text with TeX characters

Syntax

Description

example

txt = texlabel(f) converts the MATLAB® expression f into the TeX equivalent for use in text. texlabel converts Greek variable names (for example, lambda, delta, and so on) into a character vector that is displayed as Greek letters. The txt output is useful as an argument to annotation functions such as title, xlabel, and text.

If txt is too long to fit into a figure window, then the center of the expression is replaced with a tilde ellipsis (~~~).

example

txt = texlabel(f,'literal') interprets Greek variable names literally.

Examples

collapse all

Plot a line. Create text that contains TeX characters and add the text to the line plot.

plot((1:10).^2)
txt = texlabel('lambda12^(3/2)/pi - pi*delta^(2/3)');
text(3,90,txt)

If you include the 'literal' argument, texlabel interprets Greek variable names literally. Add text with the literal variable names to the line plot.

text(4,60,texlabel('lambda12^(3/2)/pi - pi*delta^(2/3)','literal'))

Input Arguments

collapse all

Input MATLAB expression, specified as a character vector.

Example: 'theta (degrees)'

Data Types: char
