It is super easy to switch the axis while using a "surf / mesh like function" (simply by switching the X,Y,Z order in surf(X,Y,Z) )
However, when adding a colormap I didn't find anywhere how to also switch the colormap targeted axis. Meaning if I write surf(Z,Y,X), the colormap will target the third element, which is X here, not Z axis, the one I would like for the same rendering.
Do you have any idea of how I could do this ?
Edit : for example with this code :
[X,Y,Z] = peaks(64);
I would like of course the colormap to be in the depth direction.

Use the 4th argument to surf and pass in whichever variable you wish to use again, e.g.
surf( Z, X, Y, Z )
