rtickangle

Rotate r-axis tick labels

Description

example

rtickangle(angle) rotates the r-axis tick labels for the current axes to the specified angle in degrees, where 0 is horizontal. Specify a positive value for counterclockwise rotation or a negative value for clockwise rotation.

example

rtickangle(pax,angle) rotates the tick labels for the axes specified by pax instead of the current axes.

ang = rtickangle returns the rotation angle for the r-axis tick labels of the current axes as a scalar value in degrees. Positive values indicate counterclockwise rotation. Negative values indicate clockwise rotation.

example

ang = rtickangle(pax) uses the polar axes specified by pax instead of the current axes.

Examples

collapse all

Create a polar plot and rotate the r-axis tick labels 45 degrees counterclockwise.

polarplot(1:100)
rtickangle(45)

Create a polar plot and assign the polar axes object to the variable pax. Then, rotate the r-axis tick labels for the polar axes. Ensure that rtickangle affects pax by specifying the polar axes object as the first input argument.

polarplot(1:100)
pax = gca;
rtickangle(pax,45)

Create a polar plot. Then, query the rotation angle for the r-axis tick labels. By default, the labels are not rotated.

polarplot(1:100)

ang = rtickangle
ang = 0

Input Arguments

collapse all

Rotation of tick labels, specified as a scalar value in degrees, where 0 is horizontal.

Example: rtickangle(90)

Polar axes, or an array of polar axes. If you do not specify this argument, then rtickangle modifies the current axes (provided that the current axes is a polar axes object).

Algorithms

The rtickangle function sets and queries the RTickLabelRotation property of the axes object.
