Hello,
My plot in matlab, by default, has ticks on both left and right and top and bottom. However, I want ticks to be only on left and bottom while keeping the axes on all four sides. Is there any command to remove ticks on top and right sides of the box.
Many thanks in advance!

Hi Reddy Yettapu,
it is not possible to control the top and right axis separately. You can add the desired behavior manually with the drawback that it won't scale with the figure if you zoom out.
arg = 0:9;
data = rand(1,10);
fh = figure;
ah = axes(fh);
plot(ah,arg,data,'o-');
ah.Box = 'off';
xline(ah,ah.XLim(2))
yline(ah,ah.YLim(2))
Kind regards,
Robert

Hi Reddy Yettapu,
could you send the figure as mat-file? It does not need to contain your original data, dummy data would be fine.
The top and right axes are missing since they are switched off. The xline() and yline() commands only provide the appearance of the box. These commands need to be executed when the figure is already finished. The lines are fixed to the x- and y-values and will not scale with the graph.
Kind regards,
Robert

Here is one easy solution to manipulate ticks, e.g.:
x = linspace(0,pi);
y = sin(x.^2);
plot(x,y), grid on
yticks([ ])
xticks([0 pi/3 pi/2 2*pi/3 pi])
xticklabels({'x=0','x = \pi/3', 'x=\pi/2','x = 2*\pi/3', 'x=\pi'})

Thanks for your answer. I want ticks to be only on left and bottom axes. However, in your plot it has ticks on top and bottom. Please let me know if you have any alternative.
Thanks,
Reddy
