I want to create axis (X,Y) with dateticks.
I want to plot the data with axis(xlim and dateticks - hh:mm:ss.SSS) but I am getting an error
Edited
ans =

1. Sorry, xstart and xend should each be 1x1. The [xstart, xend] should be 1x2 which looks OK in your data above.
2. If your x-data are duration, your x-limits need to be durations, too. That's directly from the documentation. "You can specify the limits as numeric, categorical, datetime, or duration values. However, the type of values that you specify must match the type of values along the x-axis."
3. The 2nd value of your x-axis limit must be greater than your first value. That makes sense because you're setting the [lower, upper] bounds of the x-axis.
So you need to fix #2 and #3. My answer has a function demo.

I see your data are durations along the x axis. To set the axis limits,
1. Use xlim() where the first input is your axis handle and your 2nd input is a [1 x 2] vector of durations
2. The 2nd value of your x limit must be larger than the first value
Here's a demo
% Create data and plot it on UIAxes
h = duration([9 17 54;12 32 3]);
app.uiax = uiaxes();
plot(app.uiax,h,[0,1], '-o')
% Create the [start,end] x-limits
xstart = duration(9,0,0);
xend = duration(13,0,0);
% Set the x limits: xend must be larger than xstart
xlim(app.uiax,[xstart, xend])
If your are plotting this : [c{range,1},range]
then you minimum and maximum durations would be
xstart = min([c{range,1},range]);
xend = max([c{range,1},range]);

Can you please have a look in the below post.
The issue is initiail text data are over lapping . I would like to have a Tab like implementation before next data is printed.
Example : Issue can be seen with below example, One,Two and Three text are over lapping.
x = [1:3];
y = [1:3];
str1 = ['One'];
str2 = ['Two'];
str3 = ['Three'];
plot(x,y)
text(x,y,str1);
text(x,y,str2);
text(x,y,str3);
Thank you
