Hi! I have to make a bar graph and I want to change the x values to names. I tried the Matlab tutorial as I couldn't find that in octave:
x = categorical ({'small', 'medium', 'large', 'extra large')}; x= reordercats (x, {'small', 'medium', 'large', 'extralarge'); y = [5 20 77 19] bar(x,y)
However, I got an error message. PFA the screenshot. Can you please help?
Thank you and regards,

Is this what you wanted? I'm not familiar with categorical in MATLAB.
y = [5 20 77 19]; bar(y); set(gca,"xticklabel",{'small', 'medium', 'large', 'extra large'});
The various properties each object have account for most of Octave's flexibility. Sometimes, however, it can be hard to know where to look. In this case, I modified the axes directly  I did not set labels through the bar function. Here are the axes properties I just used.


This is perfect, thank you!

What do I do if I want to make subplots, with the same xticklabels, please? I tried this: y1= [5 2 3 1];
y2= [3 2 2 1];
subplot(2,2,1),bar(y1),subplot(2,2,2),bar(y2) set(gca,"xticklabel",{'small', 'medium', 'large', 'extra large'});
PFA a screenshot of the output I got. This is perfect, thank you!

I'm not at my computer at the moment, but this should do it:
y1= [5 2 3 1]; y2= [3 2 2 1]; subplot(2,2,1) bar(y1) set(gca,"xticklabel",{'small', 'medium', 'large', 'extra large'});
subplot(2,2,2) bar(y2) set(gca,"xticklabel",{'small', 'medium', 'large', 'extra large'});
gca returns the current axes. It refers to the first plot's axes until you create the second plot. Then it refers to the second plot's axes.


Thank you so much!

Don't know if it is intensional, but you are providing a link to the doc for
Octave 4.2. The correct web link for the current version, 5.1, is
https://octave.org/doc/interpreter/AxesProperties.html#AxesPropertiesNow if you are using Octave 5.1 with its GUI, then a more ecological
approach (no web, no server request) is to run the following at the prompt
which should open the page in the doc browser
doc "axes properties"

Thank you for pointing that out!
