Version 1.0

Description

The Fill Between Area Curve creates a shaded area between two data series, effectively highlighting the region of overlap or difference.

Dependencies

For optimal performance and accurate graphs, please install the Mapping Toolbox .

Syntax

• fillBetweenAreaCurve(x, y1, y2) shades the area between 2 lines formed by y1 and y2
• fillBetweenAreaCurve(x, y1, y2, c) shades the area between 2 lines formed by y1 and y2 with color c.
• fillBetweenAreaCurve(__, Name, Value) specifies additional options for the FillBetweenAreaCurve using one or more name-value pair arguments. Specify the options after all other input arguments.

Name-Value Pair Arguments/Properties

• XData Array containing values of x-coordinates for both plots y1 and y2. Note: x-coordinates for both y1 and y2 should be common
• Y1Data y-coordinates of y1 plot
• Y2Data y-coordinates of y2 plot
• Condition The condition property selectively shades the area based on the condition provided by the user.
• ShadeInverse Shades all the unshaded regions between 2 curves with a different color.
• OptimizePerformance Calculate the vertices of triangles that compose the patch manually instead of asking patch to do it

Stylistic Name-Value Pair Arguments/Properties

• FaceAlpha Describes opacity of shaded area. If set to 1, the shaded area is completely opaque. If set to 0, the shaded area is completely transparent.
• FaceColor Describes the color of shaded area specified by Condition
• InverseFaceColor If ShadeInverse is set to true, we shade the unshaded region with InverseFaceColor
• Line1Color Line color for plot describing y1 values
• Line2Color Line color for plot describing y2 values
• XLabel Label for x axis
• YLabel Label for y axis
• Line1LineStyle Line Spec for plot describing y1 values
• Line2LineStyle Line Spec for plot describing y2 values
• Line1LineWidth Line Width for plot describing y1 values
• Line2LineWidth Line Width for plot describing y2 values
• Label1 Label for plot describing y1 values
• Label2 Label for plot describing y2 values
• Title Title of the chart

How to use

% Intialize some data
x = linspace(0, 4 * pi, 20);
y_sinx = sin(x);
y_cosx = cos(x);

% Create a basic FillBetweenAreaCurve
areaCurve = fillBetweenAreaCurve(x, y_sinx, y_cosx);

% Create a basic FillBetweenAreaCurve with magneta shading
areaCurveMagneta = fillBetweenAreaCurve(x, y_sinx, y_cosx, 'm');

% Create a FillBetweenAreaCurve with selective shading
areaCurveSelectiveShading = fillBetweenAreaCurve(x, y_sinx, y_cosx, 'Condition',   @(x, y1, y2) x > 2 & x < 4);
