Display value in plot "Groups Bars"

45 views (last 30 days)
In the following code:
How can I show each bar its value
clc, clear
y = [2 2 3; 2 5 6; 2 8 9; 2 11 12];
for i=1:1:length(y)
text(i:i,y(i)',num2str(y(i)' ,'%0.2f')),'HorizontalAlignment','center','VerticalAlignment','bottom';
box off ;
I will note that I have the 2019 version that does not support the above solution
TNX :)
xtips1 = b(1).XEndPoints;
ytips1 = b(1).YEndPoints;
labels1 = string(b(1).YData);

How to label bar heights for non-stacked bar plots
This demo adds labels above each bar.
To add the labels at the top but within the bars, change VerticalAlignment to Top.
y = [2 2 3; 2 5 6; 2 8 9; 2 11 12];
h = bar(y);
% Get bar centers (tested in 19a)
xCnt = get(h(1),'XData')' + cell2mat(get(h,'XOffset'))'; % XOffset is undocumented!
% For matlab R2019b or later,
% xCnt = vertcat(h.XEndPoints)';
% Apply labels
% Adjust height if tallest label is outside of axes
