Decrease number of histogram bins
Plot a histogram of 1,000 random numbers and return a handle to the histogram object.
x = randn(1000,1); h = histogram(x)
h = Histogram with properties: Data: [1000x1 double] Values: [3 1 2 15 17 27 53 79 85 101 127 110 124 95 67 32 27 ... ] NumBins: 23 BinEdges: [-3.3000 -3.0000 -2.7000 -2.4000 -2.1000 -1.8000 ... ] BinWidth: 0.3000 BinLimits: [-3.3000 3.6000] Normalization: 'count' FaceColor: 'auto' EdgeColor: [0 0 0] Show all properties

direction— Direction to decrease number of bins
Direction to decrease the number of bins, specified as

number of bins in the other direction constant.
N— Number of bins
Number of bins, returned as a scalar or vector.
