How to bin struct fields based on value in another field?

7 views (last 30 days)
I have a structure with multiple fields. I would like to plot a histogram of values of data in one field based on conditions in another field of each row of the struct. How would i do this?
i would like to bin so rows with corresponding test.initial(1) values 0-10, 11-20, 20-35 are grouped together

initials = arrayfun(@(S) S.initial(1), test);
finals = [].'; %assuming only one value per entry
bins = discretize(initials, [0 11 21 35]);
splitapply(@histogram, finals, bins);
legend({'[0-11)', '[11-21)', '[21-35]'});
Your bin list included 20 twice, and does not include the range between 10 and 11 (exclusive), so I had to guess what you wanted.
