Hi,
My goal is to label Xaxis and Yaxis in just one line rather in two, that is what i get.
my xlabel and ylabel are combined from two sides:
m = 5
Variable = sprintfc('Variable%d',1:m)
Variance = [10 20 30 30 10]'
when i do a plot, it plots normally what I need with my X and Y but in the xlabel part i get a 2 line label:
xlabel( Variable(1) Variance(1));
How can i turn it in only 1 line? I tried with ; in the middle doesnt work, with {} also doesnt work

xlabel( sprintf('%s%d', Variable{1}, Variance(1)) );
Though perhaps you would prefer a space between the %s and %d.

ok thanks
I updated this question when you replied to the previous one
MY example was unfortunate in the variance, if the Variance = [10.57 20 30 30 10]', when I do what you wrote, the value appears 1.057e+01, any way to print the "normal" value 10.57?

I recommend using %g instead of %d for those cases.
xlabel( sprintf('%s %g', Variable{1}, Variance(1)) );

yeah %g, i tried %0.5g as in the example on the sprintf page
Thanks a lot!
