15.2.2.3 Axes Properties

position

A vector specifying the position of the plot, excluding titles, axes and legend. The four elements of the vector are the coordinates of the lower left corner and width and height of the plot, in units normalized to the width and height of the plot window. For example, [0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5] sets the lower left corner of the axes at (0.2, 0.3) and the width and height to be 0.4 and 0.5 respectively. See also the outerposition property.

title

Index of text object for the axes title.

box

Either "on" or "off" to toggle display of the box around the axes.

key

Either "on" or "off" to toggle display of the legend. Note that this property is not compatible with MATLAB and may be removed in a future version of Octave.

keybox

Either "on" or "off" to toggle display of a box around the legend. Note that this property is not compatible with MATLAB and may be removed in a future version of Octave.

keypos

An integer from 1 to 4 specifying the position of the legend. 1 indicates upper right corner, 2 indicates upper left, 3 indicates lower left, and 4 indicates lower right. Note that this property is not compatible with MATLAB and may be removed in a future version of Octave.

dataaspectratio

A two-element vector specifying the relative height and width of the data displayed in the axes. Setting dataaspectratio to ‘1, 2]’ causes the length of one unit as displayed on the y-axis to be the same as the length of 2 units on the x-axis. Setting dataaspectratio also forces the dataaspectratiomode property to be set to "manual".

dataaspectratiomode

Either "manual" or "auto".

xlim
ylim
zlim
clim

Two-element vectors defining the limits for the x, y, and z axes and the Setting one of these properties also forces the corresponding mode property to be set to "manual".

xlimmode
ylimmode
zlimmode
climmode

Either "manual" or "auto".

xlabel
ylabel
zlabel

Indices to text objects for the axes labels.

xgrid
ygrid
zgrid

Either "on" or "off" to toggle display of grid lines.

xminorgrid
yminorgrid
zminorgrid

Either "on" or "off" to toggle display of minor grid lines.

xtick
ytick
ztick

Setting one of these properties also forces the corresponding mode property to be set to "manual".

xtickmode
ytickmode
ztickmode

Either "manual" or "auto".

xticklabel
yticklabel
zticklabel

Setting one of these properties also forces the corresponding mode property to be set to "manual".

xticklabelmode
yticklabelmode
zticklabelmode

Either "manual" or "auto".

xscale
yscale
zscale

Either "linear" or "log".

xdir
ydir
zdir

Either "forward" or "reverse".

xaxislocation
yaxislocation

Either "top" or "bottom" for the x-axis and "left" or "right" for the y-axis.

view

A three element vector specifying the view point for three-dimensional plots.

visible

Either "on" or "off" to toggle display of the axes.

nextplot

May be one of

"new"
"add"
"replace"
"replacechildren"
outerposition

A vector specifying the position of the plot, including titles, axes and legend. The four elements of the vector are the coordinates of the lower left corner and width and height of the plot, in units normalized to the width and height of the plot window. For example, [0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5] sets the lower left corner of the axes at (0.2, 0.3) and the width and height to be 0.4 and 0.5 respectively. See also the position property.
