How to use string as plot arguments

2 views (last 30 days)
I was fiddling around a lot: Having two plots, I want to spare some work and define a common string to feed into both plots arguments:
CC = winter(1)
str = '''.''MarkerSize'',12,''Color'',CC(i,:)';
plot(1:10,1:10,str)
hold on
plot(1:10,1:10,str)
It just wont't allow me to use the string as shortcut.
I tried eval and other suggestions but nothing helped to convince MATLAB to run the program.

Ugh, that is a really very ugly way to code. Why not just use a much neater comma-separated list:
M = winter(1);
C = {'*', 'MarkerSize',12, 'Color',M};
plot(1:10,1:10,C{:})
hold on
plot(1:10,10:-1:1,C{:})

Yea, it appeared to me like an awkward kind of coding as well. Thank you for guiding me the pretty way ;)
