Hello everyone,
I would like to put the tick label on x axis every 2 years instead of every 5 years. How can I do it?
Thank you!
LD = load('MODESTAMMEQ.mat');
MODESTAMMEQ = LD.MODESTAMMEQ;
dv = regexp(MODESTAMMEQ.Jan1989, '\d*\-\w*\-\d*','match');
MODESTAMMEQ.Var1 = datetime([dv{:}], 'InputFormat',"dd-MMM-yyyy").';
x = MODESTAMMEQ.Var1;
y = MODESTAMMEQ.Var2*10*0.35;
figure
plot(x, y)
grid

Hi Pul,
You can use xticks to specify the values where you want the ticks to appear, and xticklabels to customize the labels themselves, if you wish.
In your case, you'll specify something like xticks([0 5 10 15]), etc.
Thanks,
Peter

Thank you @Peter Bonavita.
The only problem is that then I can't plot my y with the new x, because they have a different length.
newTicks = datetime({'2000','2002','2004','2006','2008','2010','2012','2014','2016','2018'},'InputFormat','u');
xticks(''2000','2002','2004','2006','2008','2010','2012','2014','2016','2018');
