How can I highlight or change the color of certain values in a table

57 views (last 30 days)
I am creating about 50 (46x9)tables with the command array2table and I would really like to highlight/change the color of values that are above a certain threshold, otherwise I have to do it manually. I know how to find the indices of these values (with the command find), however I cannot find a way to let these values stand out out of the rest of the data. How can I do this or do I have to use something else than array2table like uitable? And if uitable is the solution how would I do it?

Presumably you are displaying your data in a GUI and so would need to use a uitable. See http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/25038-how-to-change-each-cell-color-in-a-uitable for an example on how to colour the cells.

use html format for your cell data.. the set the background color accordingly:
TableCell = strcat('<html><b><font face = "Lucida Handwriting" font size = "3" color = "red" ><right><table border=0 width=400 bgcolor=#FFFFFF>',num2str(Numeric Value),'</center></html>');
