Assume we had
y=[2 3 4; 1 5 2; 6 2 5]
bar(y)
Would there be anyway to get the value of the bar graphs on top of the bars?

Hi Ibro,
You can calculate the bar offsets within each group and use the text function to plot the y values on top of each bar.
y = [2 3 4 ; 1 5 2; 6 2 5];
b = bar(y);
width = b.BarWidth;
for i=1:length(y(:, 1))
row = y(i, :);
% 0.5 is approximate net width of white spacings per group
offset = ((width + 0.5) / length(row)) / 2;
x = linspace(i-offset, i+offset, length(row));
text(x,row,num2str(row'),'vert','bottom','horiz','center');
end
