How to create a stacked bar out of two separate bar charts (Datasets)?

2 views (last 30 days)
Hi everyone,
I have two 5x6 data available. At the moment, it is being plotted as the following but how can I make them stacked?
Right now I am concating data using > Concat = [Data1;Data2] and then I use > bar(Concat). It does not work with bar(concat, 'stacked') I tried to concat them using horizontal version but that does not work too.

You may try the following code, but noticed that the XTick is not consistent with your data since there are additional dummy data.
Data1 = round(100*rand(5,6)); % Your data Data1
Data2 = round(100*rand(5,6)); % Your data Data2
dummy = zeros(5,6); % Dummy data
Data1_extend = vertcat(Data1,dummy);
Data2_extend = vertcat(Data2,dummy);
Data_combine = horzcat(Data1_extend(:), Data2_extend(:));
bar(Data_combine,'stacked');
f = gcf;
f.Children.XTick=''; % Remove XTick
Not good at setting colors on bar chart, may be someone provide the solution about that.

@Simon Chan yes I just copy and pasted yours and tried to run it to see what you mean by xtick :D
