How to not repeat colors plotting with barh?

9 views (last 30 days)
Hello,
I'm plotting a Gantt chart and I have 10 jobs, as you can see from the image after the 6th job the colours are repeating themselves, how can I tell to not repeat them?
I also have another question, how can I plot inside each bar the name of the job? So that I won't have anymore to use the legend.
Thank you in advance.

Hi
You can customize the color of the bars and make them unique using CData.
The following code might help you in the same.
X = [1];
Y10 = [5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5];
bar_obj = barh(X,Y10,'stacked','FaceColor','flat');
bar_obj(8).CData = [0 1 0];
bar_obj(9).CData = [1 1 0.5];
bar_obj(10).CData = [1 0.5 0.5];
As you can see, all the colours are unique.
Hope this helps.
Thanks

Ok perfect, that worked! Thank you.
I also have another question, do you know how to do a vertical dashed line with two colours in the plot?
I wanted to do a red and blue one in the picture that I attach where there are D9 & D10, but I only have found how to do a dashed line with only one colour:
xl = xline(D(scheduled(i)),'--r',"D9 & D10");
