Are multcompare plots compatible with subplots?

Asked by Rainer
on 14 May 2013

Does anyone know if it is possible to have the graphs from multcompare be plotted in subplots?

  • load carsmall
  • [p,t,st] = anova1(MPG,Origin,'off');
  • [p,t,st2] = anova1(Displacement,Origin,'off');
  • figure
  • [c,m,h,nms] = multcompare(st);
  • figure
  • [c,m,h,nms] = multcompare(st2);

The script above generates 2 graphs. I have tried every which way to get the graphs to be in a 2,1 subplot but can't do it.

You are right that the code clears the current figure before plotting, so setting up a subplot won't help.

I just tried deleting the "clf" line from meansgraph.m, and it seemed to work okay. It looks a little funny since the function puts up a graph title instructing you to click on a group, and this instruction then appears over each graph, but the mouse operations work as they should.

You could try deleting this line.

Thanks a lot Tom. That worked.

But meansgraph.m is a Read Only file. How can I delet that line?

If you control the disk where it is stored, you may just be able to overwrite the old file. Otherwise you may have to make your own copies of multcompare, meansgraph, and perhaps some others, and place them in your own area.
