Hi everyone, I would like to know how I can normalize , I don't know if it is the correct word, the x-axis of a horizontal bar graph (barh).
More specifically, I have calculated some coefficients which sum to 1 hence each of them can be expressed as a % . Therefore, instead of getting an automatic max value on the x-axis of the barh, I would like to change this in order to display values like 10,20,30,......,100 being the max value.
Thank you very much in advance.

I am not certain what you currently are seeing, or what you want.
Try this:
v = [0.1 0.3 0.2 0.4]; % Create Data
xlim([0 1]) % Set X-Axis Limits
xt = get(gca, 'XTick'); % Current X-Tick Values
set(gca, 'XTick',xt, 'XTickLabel',xt*100) % New X-Tick Values


Such an acccurate answer!
Thank you so much Star Strider. However, in my case I multiplied the v vector:
v = v.*100;
and then I just set the xlim to :
xlim([0 100]);
and everything is scaled perfectly.
Thank you again.
