# Plot multiple curves with filled markers

Hello, I would like to plot a series of curves in the same graphs using lines and markers, and I want that every marker is filled and with the same color than the line color.
The following code plots 3 curves with line and markers. Each curve uses the same color for markers and line, and each curve has a different color, but the markers are not filled.
plot (x1,y1,'-o')
hold on
plot(x2,y2,'-o')
plot(x3,y3,'-o')
hold off
I could manually enter the colors for each curve and solve the problem, like this:
plot (x1,y1,'r-o','MarkerFaceColor','r')
hold on
plot(x2,y2,'b-o','MarkerFaceColor','b')
plot(x3,y3,'k-o','MarkerFaceColor','k')
hold off
... but this will be very inefficient when I have to plot many curves.
Thanks!

One approach —
x = linspace(0,10);
v = 1:5;
y = v(:)+sin(2*pi*v(:)*x);
cm = colormap(jet(size(y,1)));
figure
hold on
for k = 1:size(y,1)
plot(x, y(k,:), '-o', 'Color',cm(k,:), 'MarkerFaceColor',cm(k,:))
end
hold off
grid
xlabel('X')
ylabel('Y')
