How to make the program more flexible

I want to make a frame that can follow the pattern.
ex, M = 4,N = 4, I would got a 4 by 4 "x" (matrix)
However, this Mg by Ng frame will surround the M by N matrix
But my program is not flexible enough and the problem is in the frame settings, but I don’t know how to modify...
M = 4; % "\" pattern and "/" pattern (column)
N = 4; %"\" pattern and "/" pattern (Row)
Mg = 1; % Frame size (column)
Ng = 1; % Frame size (Row)
a = [1 0.5];
b = [0.5 1];
for q = 1:1:M*Mg
hold on;
for w = 1:1:N*Ng
hold on;
plot(a+q,b+w,'r') % "\" pattern
end
end
hold on;
a1 = [1 0.5];
b1 = [1 0.5];
for q = 1:1:M*Mg
hold on;
for w = 1:1:N*Ng
hold on;
plot(a1+q,b1+w,'b') % "/" pattern
end
end
%---------Frame size--------------
for M = 0 : M: M*Mg
hold on;
x=[1.25 1.25 1.25+M 1.25+M 1.25];
for N = 0 : N: N*Ng
y=[1.25 1.25+N 1.25+N 1.25 1.25];
plot(x,y,'k','lineWidth',2)
end
end
Hope to present the following fig, M = 4; N = 4; Mg = 2; Ng = 2;

Here's a function that places an M x N grid of Xs within a rectangle defined by pos, as well as a few lines which use that function to create your frames.
M = 8; % "\" pattern and "/" pattern (column)
N = 8; %"\" pattern and "/" pattern (Row)
Mg = 2; % Frame size (column)
Ng = 2; % Frame size (Row)
ax = axes('NextPlot', 'add',...
'XTick', [],...
'YTick', []);
for ii = 1:Mg
for jj = 1:Ng
pos = [ii, jj, 1, 1];
fillSquareWithXs(ax, pos, M, N)
end
end
function fillSquareWithXs(ax, pos, M, N)
% ax - target axes
% pos - position of square, [llx, lly, width, height]
% M - # of rows of Xs
% N - # of cols of Xs
% find location, width, and height of each X
xco = linspace(pos(1), pos(1)+pos(3), M+1);
yco = linspace(pos(2), pos(2)+pos(4), N+1);
dx = diff(xco)/2;
dy = diff(yco)/2;
xco = xco(1:end-1) + dx;
yco = yco(1:end-1) + dy;
% plot Xs
for q = xco
for w = yco
plot(ax,q+[dx/2 -dx/2],w+[-dy/2 dy/2],'r') % "\" pattern
plot(ax,q+[dx/2 -dx/2],w+[dy/2 -dy/2],'b') % "/" pattern
end
end
% plot borders
plot([pos(1), pos(1)], [pos(2), pos(2)+pos(4)], 'k', 'LineWidth', 2);
plot([pos(1), pos(1)+pos(3)], [pos(2)+pos(4), pos(2)+pos(4)], 'k', 'LineWidth', 2);
plot([pos(1), pos(1)+pos(3)], [pos(2), pos(2)], 'k', 'LineWidth', 2);
plot([pos(1)+pos(3), pos(1)+pos(3)], [pos(2), pos(2)+pos(4)], 'k', 'LineWidth', 2);
end

It seems that your function is only applicable to the case of M = N. Is there a way to make the case of M ~= N also work?

Happy to help! Good point, try this:
M = 4; % "\" pattern and "/" pattern (column)
N = 8; %"\" pattern and "/" pattern (Row)
Mg = 2; % Frame size (column)
Ng = 2; % Frame size (Row)
ax = axes('NextPlot', 'add',...
'XTick', [],...
'YTick', []);
for ii = 1:Mg
for jj = 1:Ng
pos = [ii, jj, 1, 1];
fillSquareWithXs(ax, pos, M, N)
end
end
function fillSquareWithXs(ax, pos, M, N)
% ax - target axes
% pos - position of square, [llx, lly, width, height]
% M - # of rows of Xs
% N - # of cols of Xs
% find location, width, and height of each X
xco = linspace(pos(1), pos(1)+pos(3), M+1);
yco = linspace(pos(2), pos(2)+pos(4), N+1);
dx = (xco(2)-xco(1))/2; % <--- changed
dy = (yco(2)-yco(1))/2; % <--- lines
xco = xco(1:end-1) + dx;
yco = yco(1:end-1) + dy;
% plot Xs
for q = xco
for w = yco
plot(ax,q+[dx/2 -dx/2],w+[-dy/2 dy/2],'r') % "\" pattern
plot(ax,q+[dx/2 -dx/2],w+[dy/2 -dy/2],'b') % "/" pattern
end
end
% plot borders
plot([pos(1), pos(1)], [pos(2), pos(2)+pos(4)], 'k', 'LineWidth', 2);
plot([pos(1), pos(1)+pos(3)], [pos(2)+pos(4), pos(2)+pos(4)], 'k', 'LineWidth', 2);
plot([pos(1), pos(1)+pos(3)], [pos(2), pos(2)], 'k', 'LineWidth', 2);
plot([pos(1)+pos(3), pos(1)+pos(3)], [pos(2), pos(2)+pos(4)], 'k', 'LineWidth', 2);
end

I can't thank you enough.
