Text overlapp in uifigure plot

47 views (last 30 days)
I'm using text to plot the text in a user interface figure (x,y,str). I was unable to see the original text message since they overlapped.
Can someone please tell me how to prevent the words from overlapping?
Thank you!

Here are two ways to control the position of text in a plot
Use Matlab's text() function
The HorizontalAlignment and VerticalAlignment properties control the text position relative to the coordinate.
fig = figure();
ax = axes(fig);
textSamples = {'First Row', 'Second Row', 'Third Row'};
x = 1:3
y = 1:3;
plot(ax, x, y, 'bo')
hold(ax, 'on')
% Example of text()
text(ax, x+.05, y, textSamples,'HorizontalAlignment', 'Center', 'VerticalAlignment', 'Bottom')
Use labelpoints() from the file exchange
The same example above can be done with this line below. The 'N' input specifies that the text should be North of the coordinates.
labelpoints(x,y,textSamples,'N','color','b') % N is for North
