Is it possible to change stackedplots background color?

6 views (last 30 days)
I have been developing apps with stackedplots, but I can't find a way to change the background color (white by default).
I guess is not implemented for this type of plots, so I was wondering if there is any other trick I can use.

As of now, changing the background color in stackedplot is not supported in AppDesigner -> uifigure for the available MATLAB releases. However, the concerned parties may be looking into it and might be added in the future releases.

You can get the axis handles in stackedplot using the undocumented NodeChildren property. Then change background color.
h = stackedplot(rand(100,4));
ax = findobj(h.NodeChildren, 'Type','Axes');
set(ax,'Color',[.8 .8 .8])
To set the color of a selected axis number n,
% set(ax(n), ...)
