I have a function like:
m=zeros(3,4)
for x=1:3
for y=1:4
m(x,y)=x*(y+1i*y);
end
scatterplot(m(x,:));
hold on;
end
Although i used "hold on" but Its generating three different plots. Can I plot all three different data in the same plot with different color?

Scatterplot is a really special function that needs a special syntax to plot more that one scatterplot together.
If you need more info I used this, and I add an example of how you can plot some figures together
m =zeros(3,4);
first=1;
for x=1:3
for y=1:4
m(x,y)=x*(y+1i*y);
end
if first
h = scatterplot(m(x,:),1,0,'bo');
first=0;
else
h = scatterplot(m(x,:),1,0,'bo',h);
end
hold on;
end

Thank you. It is working good. But what should I do for each of array in scatter plot will have different color or marker?

The 'bo' param is used to mark the points to be blue('b') circles ('o'). To change the color you can use the normal ones as you do it with plot ('r' = red, 'b' = blue, 'g' = green, 'k' = black...)
m =zeros(3,4);
first=1;
color = ['r','g','b'];
for x=1:3
for y=1:4
m(x,y)=x*(y+1i*y);
end
if first
h = scatterplot(m(x,:),1,0,color(x));
first=0;
else
h = scatterplot(m(x,:),1,0,color(x),h);
end
hold on;
end
