## intercept of secondary axis

on 19 Jan 2013

Hi,

Im plotting two lines using two axis. They are velocity and acceleration. My question is how can I make the 0 point on the two axis be at the same level? At the moment, the 0 on the secondary axis is inline with 50 on the primary axis.

```plotyy(x,y1,x,y2,'plot');
```

Thank you

```yt=get(gca, 'ytick');
yt(1)=[];
set(gca,'ytick',yt)
```

I've edited the code, try again, if it don't work, post your code. And don't accept the answer before checking it

Hi,

Noting happened, no error either.

My code is:

```plotyy(x,y1,x,y2,'plot');
```

Try this

```close;
x=0:250;
y1=100*abs(sin(0.01*x)),
y2=10*cos(.04*x);
[ax,h1,h2]=plotyy(x,y1,x,y2,'plot');
yt=get(ax(1), 'ytick');
yt(1)=[];
set(ax(1),'ytick',yt)
```

All I have is 3 variables x, y1 and y2.

My code is: plotyy(x,y1,x,y2,'plot');

I'm trying to plot them on a graph with a secondary axis. But I need the the '0' point on both axis to be at the same level.

In the picture above, one axis is 50 and same level of the other axis is 0. I need the 0s inline.

Can this be done?

Thanks

Ok, I get it now, use

```ylim=get(ax(1), 'ylim');
ytick=get(ax(1), 'ytick');
set(ax(2),'ylim',ylim,'ytick',ytick)
```

but you will loose the negative part
