Hi everyone,
I am creating a figure with three tables A,B,C like
f = figure
uitable('Parent',f,'Data',A{:,:},'ColumnName',A.Properties.VariableNames,'RowName',A.Properties.RowNames,'Units', 'Normalized', 'Position',[0, 0, 1, 1/3])
uitable('Parent',f,'Data',B{:,:},'ColumnName',B.Properties.VariableNames,'RowName',B.Properties.RowNames,'Units', 'Normalized', 'Position',[0, 1/3, 1, 1/3])
uitable('Parent',f,'Data',C{:,:},'ColumnName',C.Properties.VariableNames,'RowName',C.Properties.RowNames,'Units', 'Normalized', 'Position',[0, 2/3, 1, 1/3])
Now I want to add some kind of title to each table. I tried to use 'text' and 'annotation' but those functions seem to work for graph plots only. Is there a way to add text or even titles to tables displayed in a figure window?

As per my knowledge, text requires an axis as a parent. If its not present, an axis object will automatically get created.
In your case, you will have to use the uicontrol with Style as text to get the desired result.
Please refer the following documentation for example usage of this command:
The following documentation page for more information about controlling the appearance of the uicontrols:
