Hello! I have a boxplot with 3 subplots in it. I want to display each median, outlier, whisker, etc in my figure. I do not want to use a text format because I want to use the same code for different CSV files. The CSV files I will use later on have different medians, outliers, etc.
Hope anyone can help me
Thank yo!

To modify graphics properties of a box plot component, use findobj with the Tag property to find the component's handle. Tag values for box plot components depend on parameter settings, and are listed in the following table.
Parameter SettingsTag Values
All settings
  • 'Box'
  • 'Outliers'
When 'PlotStyle' is 'traditional'
  • 'Median'
  • 'Upper Whisker'
  • 'Lower Whisker'
  • 'Upper Adjacent Value'
  • 'Lower Adjacent Value'
When 'PlotStyle' is 'compact'
  • 'Whisker'
  • 'MedianOuter'
  • 'MedianInner'
When 'Notch' is 'marker'
  • 'NotchLo'
  • 'NotchHi'
