The tick marks themselves are set on the colorbar. However, only every other mark is labeled with the appropriate 10^x. How do I get these in-between labels to appear?
To be clear, my current work spans over ten of these labels. I can visually see eight major log tick marks on the color bar, plus the colorbar's min and max values. The lowest extreme is labeled (by default; I didn't make this happen) and moving up the colorbar only every other major tick is labeled. Only five labels exist on the colorbar, but I would like to see ten.
Preferably, I'd like to generalize the code such that if my numbers only go across six major log ticks or even fourteen log ticks that MATLAB will display all necessary major tick labels.
So, finally finished installing latest release. Try setting the ticks manually and it should work. For the example given in the comments:
if true x = [4e7, 5e11, 9e17]; y = [5e8, 4e11, 8e17]; z = [3e8, 6e11, 7e17]; average = (x+y+z)/3; markersize = 99; C = average; color = C(:); %Vary color by value of average scatter3(x,y,z,markersize,color,'Filled') cb=colorbar set(gca,'ColorScale','log') caxis([min(x),max(x)]); %set value range of colorbar end set(cb,'ticks',10.^(8:20))
