how to use the "tight" function for just one axis

787 views (last 30 days)
So I origionally had: axis tight But it cut both axes, whereas I just want it to be tight around the x axis but allow the y axis to not be cut. Is there a function for this please? Thanks

Not at hand, but it's not difficult to do...
function ytight(ax)
% Set axis tight only on y-axes
yl=xlim(ax); % retrieve auto y-limits
axis tight % set tight range
ylim(ax,yl) % restore y limits
end
You can also actually compute min, max of X-axis data and just set it, which is what is done
xlim([min(x) max(x)])

xlim can actually do this without manually setting the limits:
xlim('tight')
which I have added as a seperate answer below.

There's an out-of-the-box command for what you want:
set(handleToAxes, 'XLimSpec', 'Tight');
or
set(handleToAxes, 'YLimSpec', 'Tight');
