Setting plot limits with dates, Part 2

16 views (last 30 days)
I belive I have set the xlim to start from April 29. But the output plot starts from April 1. How can I really force the graph to start from April 1?

Once the figure is plotted, use xlim([x1,x2]) where x1 and x2 are in datetime form to force the graph's x-axis limits be x1 and x2.
See example below:
Where the minimum x-axis value is the thrid entry in the x datetime array and the maximum x-axis value is the last entry
For using datetick, try (if you want to keep the current tick locations):
If not, remove 'keepticks' and use:
set(gca,'XTicks',y) %where y is an array of values you want to use for your xticks in datetime form
