How to create a plot with customized axis location?

93 views (last 30 days)
Hello everyone
I am writing to ask for your help with creating a MATLAB plot with customized axis location. By default the axis location of x and y are placed in bottom and left of the plot box respectively. However I am wondering if there is a way to adjust the axis location to my desired location.
To provide an example I would like to create a plot similar to the one shown in following attached picture (which I took from a book). As you can see, the x axis with its 'tickslabels' is placed in the middle of the box:
However what one usually gets is different from that as shown in following picture [which x axis is placed in the bottom]:
Thank you in advance.

You may move the axis to the origin by setting 'XAxisLocation', or 'YAxisLocation' property to 'origin'.
f = figure;
ax = gca;
plot(ax,-10:1:10,-10:1:10);
set(ax,'XAxisLocation','origin');
