rtickangle

Rotate r-axis tick labels

Syntax

rtickangle(angle)
rtickangle(ax,angle)
ang = rtickangle
ang = rtickangle(pax)

Description

example

rtickangle(angle) rotates the r-axis tick labels for the current axes to the specified angle in degrees, where 0 is horizontal. Specify a positive value for counterclockwise rotation or a negative value for clockwise rotation.

example

rtickangle(ax,angle) rotates the tick labels for the axes specified by ax instead of the current axes.

ang = rtickangle returns the rotation angle for the r-axis tick labels of the current axes as a scalar value in degrees. Positive values indicate counterclockwise rotation. Negative values indicate clockwise rotation.

example

ang = rtickangle(pax) uses the polar axes specified by pax instead of the current axes.

Examples

collapse all

Create a polar plot and rotate the r-axis tick labels 45 degrees counterclockwise.

polarplot(1:100)
rtickangle(45)

Create a polar plot and assign the polar axes object to the variable pax. Then, rotate the r-axis tick labels for the polar axes. Ensure that rtickangle affects pax by specifying the polar axes object as the first input argument.

polarplot(1:100)
pax = gca;
rtickangle(pax,45)

Create a polar plot. Then, query the rotation angle for the r-axis tick labels. By default, the labels are not rotated.

polarplot(1:100)

ang = rtickangle
ang = 0

Input Arguments

collapse all

Rotation of tick labels, specified as a scalar value in degrees, where 0 is horizontal.

Example: rtickangle(90)

One or more polar axes, specified as a single object or a vector of objects. If you do not specify the polar axes, then rtickangle uses the current axes.

Algorithms

The rtickangle function sets and queries the RTickLabelRotation property of the axes object.
