Display checkmark string in figure

23 views (last 30 days)
I'm trying to use the text() function to display a checkmark in a figure. I can't seem to figure it out. I've basically tried:
text(x,y,'✓')
It doesn't display anything using this command. Help!

First set your system to display UTF-8 encoded characters:
feature('DefaultCharacterSet','UTF-8');
Then plot it (look for UTF-8 characters for other types of check marks):
uicontrol('Style','text', 'String',char(hex2dec('2713')), ...
'Units','normalized', 'Position',[0 0 1 1], ...
'FontSize',30)
I don't know if it is possible to do with text()

try a different text
text(x, y, 'ok')
and make sure that x and y are within the bounds of your figure

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried this and my x,y are within the bounds. It just doesn't like the ✓ character it seems. I think I may just use * instead and avoid the trouble.
