Placing a title for multiple plots in a for loop

13 views (last 30 days)
I have a for loop that will generate a bunch of plots, say 50. I want to put a title on each one but I don't want to do this 50 times if I can avoid it. I want the titles to be "Test A at 0 mins", "Test A at 5 mins", "Test A at 10 mins" and so forth. Is there a way where I can just type in "Test A at" and MATLAB can fill out the time as it goes through the for loop?

You can use sprintf to format the title within the loop, for instance you could store all your title in a cell array for future reference, but in a loop that would look like this:
TitleArray = cell(1,50);
for i = 1:50
A{i} = sprintf('Test A at %i mins\n',i);
end
Of course you could just put the title after you draw the plot:
hold all
for i =1:50
...you code for generating the plots
title(sprintf('Test A at %i mins\n',i));
end
hold off
Do you want to generate 50 plots in the same figure or all on one big figure?
