Dear All,
We have
a=1,2,3,4,5; (in a column 1)
b=-1000,10,0,20,-20; (in a column 2)
b_filtered=b(:,2)>=0;
plot (a,b_filtered);
How to plot these two values that after filtered they have two different dimensions?
Best,

a = [1,2,3,4,5];
b = [-1000,10,0,20,-20];
idx = b>=0;
plot(a(idx), b(idx), 'o-');

Thank you.
your plot is different with the other answeres. I do not know which one is correct to adapt it to my code. Do you know?

hello
simply replace the negative values of b by NaN so the vector size remains the same
a=[1;2;3;4;5];
b= [-10;10;0;20;-20];
b_filtered=b;
b_filtered(b<0) = NaN;
plot (a,b,a,b_filtered,'dr');

Hello Mathieu,
The plot you provided is different with the plot above provided by another expert who response to my question. I am confuse as I do not know which one is correct and how to modify my code based on which solution. Would you please tell me which one is correct?

It is my understanding that you are trying to plot a and b_filtered. I believe b_filtered is supposed to contain the non-negative elements of b, please correct me if I'm wrong on this, I did not understand what exactly is (b(:,2)>=0) supposed to do? If I'm not wrong, we can retain the elements of a at the indices where b is not negative and plot a and b accordingly.
a=[1;2;3;4;5];
b= [-10;10;0;20;-20];
b(b<0)=NaN;
a(b<0)=NaN;
b_filtered=b;
p=plot (a,b_filtered,"red");

Thank you Ruchika, for your response.
it means second column of my data should be greater than zero. I do not know which answer is correct as the figure for second answer isnot the same with yours. You and the first answer are the same output.
I have to modify it in a large set of data.

I have "data" file. When I open it in matlab that consist of 12 coumns and one of them is b. So, b is a column that contain a full range of data in a one column.
