Hi,
I got these points and I want to colour every 4 points with a specific color:
x = [ 1 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 4 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 5]';
y = [ 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5]';
Point 1:4 yellow, 5:8 blue, 9:12 red, etc, and I want to plot all the 25 entries. the last "block" with just have the row number 25.
I though doing this:
[n,~] = size(x);
block_points = 4;
t_start = 1:block_points:n;
t_end = block_points:block_points:n;
but I got a problem with t_end, only has size 6, while t_start has size 7, due to the last block that only has 1 number.
Thanks for your help

First of all, I did not say that your help was for nothing, I appreatiate the time you spend on my question, like I wrote in the last comment I wrote.
I think I should not accept your answer since, it was not what I looking for, I wanted a more automatic procedure, depending on the variables and not the numbers. I was looking for something that could always work, no matter the X and Y provided, and I was able to acomplish that.
Like I said, thanks for your interest in my question, and the effort that you spent on it.

This is what I did to solve my question:
from a generic
X = [1:25]';
Y = [1:25]';
I want to plot each number of "rows" to a specific color
[n,m] = size(X);
rows = 3;
columns = ceil(n/rows);
extra_row = columns * rows;
X(n+1:extra_row) = NaN; Y(n+1:extra_row) = NaN;
X_new = reshape(X,rows,columns); Y_new = reshape(Y,rows,columns);
legenda = sprintfc('Mes %d', 1:columns);
for j = 1:size(X_new,2)
plot(X_new(:,j),Y_new(:,j),'*')
hold on
end

EDITED
xx = [ 1 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 4 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 5]';
yy = [ 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5]';
x=reshape(xx(1:end-1),4,[]);
y=reshape(yy(1:end-1),4,[]);
s={'-oy','-ob','-or','-og','-om','-oy'};
for i=1:size(x,1)
plot(x(i,:),y(i,:),s{i})
hold on
end
plot(xx(end),yy(end),'ok',...
'markerFaceColor','k')
