Using get and set command to add a title, xlabel, and ylabel?

6 views (last 30 days)
Is there a way to add a title and x and y axes labels to a figure by using only the get and set commands? Also, I need to change the fontsize and make them bold. It should all be done by using get and set exclusively.
Thanks in advance!

You can take a look by first extracting out the current axis or assign it to a variable:
figure(1),imagesc(randi(10,10,10))
hax = gca;
disp(hax)
then you can see all the parameters you can change. by looking through the output you can see that you can change ylabel though its also an "object" so you'll need to look inside
get(hax,'Ylabel')
for an example of your ylabel and bold
set(get(hax,'Ylabel'),'String','test')
set(get(hax,'Ylabel'),'FontWeight','bold')
set(get(hax,'Ylabel'),'FontSize',15)
Additionally in newer matlabs you don't need to use set anymore but treat it as an structure and change for example fontsize by
h.YLabel.FontSize = 9
