Dear Sir/Madam,
In my horizontal bar chart MATLAB has given specific colors for each bar. I'd like to use the same colors in another graph. How can I get these facecolors?
Best regards,
Jelle

Use the handles to the bar graph to retrieve its 'FaceColor' property.
Eg:
hbar1 = hbar(data,SomeColor);
Then you can get the color specifications with:
get(hbar1,'FaceColor');
and apply it to another graph:
hbar2 = hbar(data2,get(hbar1,'FaceColor'));
