DataTipTemplate Properties

Data tip content and appearance

DataTipTemplate properties control the content and appearance of data tips. By changing property values, you can modify certain aspects of data tips.

p = plot(1:10);
dtt = p.DataTipTemplate

Content

expand all

Row content, specified as an array of DataTipTextRow objects. The default data tips have two or three rows, depending on the plotted data.

You can modify the existing rows by setting properties of the DataTipTextRow objects. Access a particular row by indexing into the array of objects.

Example: dtt.DataTipRows(1).Label = 'My label' changes the label for the first row.

Example: dtt.DataTipRows(1).Value = 'YData' changes the value source for the first row to use the YData property of the plotted object.

Example: dtt.DataTipRows(1).Format = 'usd' changes the value format for the first row.

Alternatively, you can add new rows to the data tip using the dataTipTextRow function.

Example: dtt.DataTipRows(end+1) = dataTipTextRow(label,value) adds a new row to the data tip with the specified label and value source.

Font

expand all

Font size, specified as a scalar value greater than zero in point units. The default font size depends on the specific operating system and locale. One point equals 1/72 inch.

Example: dtt.FontSize = 12;

Interpretation of text characters, specified as one of these values:

  • 'tex' — Interpret characters using a subset of TeX markup.

  • 'latex' — Interpret characters using LaTeX markup.

  • 'none' — Display literal characters.

TeX Markup

By default, MATLAB® supports a subset of TeX markup. Use TeX markup to add superscripts and subscripts, modify the font type and color, and include special characters in the text.

Modifiers remain in effect until the end of the text. Superscripts and subscripts are an exception because they modify only the next character or the characters within the curly braces. When you set the Interpreter property to 'tex', the supported modifiers are as follows.

ModifierDescriptionExample
^{ }Superscript'text^{superscript}'
_{ }Subscript'text_{subscript}'
\bfBold font'\bf text'
\itItalic font'\it text'
\slOblique font (usually the same as italic font)'\sl text'
\rmNormal font'\rm text'
\fontname{specifier}Font name — Replace specifier with the name of a font family. You can use this in combination with other modifiers.'\fontname{Courier} text'
\fontsize{specifier}Font size —Replace specifier with a numeric scalar value in point units.'\fontsize{15} text'
\color{specifier}Font color — Replace specifier with one of these colors: red, green, yellow, magenta, blue, black, white, gray, darkGreen, orange, or lightBlue.'\color{magenta} text'
\color[rgb]{specifier}Custom font color — Replace specifier with a three-element RGB triplet.'\color[rgb]{0,0.5,0.5} text'

This table lists the supported special characters with the Interpreter property set to 'tex'.

LaTeX Markup

To use LaTeX markup, set the Interpreter property to 'latex'. Use dollar symbols around the text, for example, use '$\int_1^{20} x^2 dx$' for inline mode or '$$\int_1^{20} x^2 dx$$' for display mode.

The displayed text uses the default LaTeX font style. The FontName, FontWeight, and FontAngle properties do not have an effect. To change the font style, use LaTeX markup.

The maximum size of the text that you can use with the LaTeX interpreter is 1200 characters. For multiline text, this reduces by about 10 characters per line.

For more information about the LaTeX system, see The LaTeX Project website at https://www.latex-project.org/.
