do not display value on the axis

Asked by Locks on 18 May 2013

Hi,

I am looking for a code that allows me to plot a figure where there are no value displayed on the x axis

I tried to use this code here:

set(gca,'xtick',[])

but that didn't work, any suggestions?

Maybe the order is not good

plot(1:3,1:3)
set(gca,'xtick',[])

I have this code

dates=datenum(dataSet(:,1));
%SPX
SPX=dataSet(:,2);
%VIX
VIX=dataSet(:,3);
plotyy(dates,SPX,dates,VIX);
set(gca, 'xticklabel', []);

and this is not working

x=0:100;
y1=cos(x);
y2=sin(x);
[ax,h1,h2]=plotyy(x,y1,x,y2)
set(ax,'xtick',[])

Try this:

set(gca, 'xtick', [-inf inf]);

dates=[1,2,3,4]
SPX=[0.1,0.2,0.1,0.2]
VIX=[0.02,0.28,0.2,0.3]
%dates=datenum(dataSet(:,1));
%SPX
%SPX=dataSet(:,2);
%VIX
%VIX=dataSet(:,3);
plotyy(dates,SPX,dates,VIX);
set(gca, 'xtick', [-inf inf]);

does not work either

It doesn't seem to work because you used plotyy() instead of plot(). Do you really need two y axes? Can you use one common one?

dates=[1,2,3,4]
SPX=[0.1,0.2,0.1,0.2]
VIX=[0.02,0.28,0.2,0.3]
plot(dates,SPX,'gs-');
hold on;
plot(dates,VIX, 'bd-');
set(gca, 'xtick', [-inf inf]);

I need two seperated axis due to the fact that the values on the left side go from around 1000 to around 2000 and on the right from 0 to 100
