C=rand(150,10);

% prepare data
data=cell(10,3);
for ii=1:size(data,1)
Ac{ii}=A(:,ii);
Bc{ii}=B(:,ii);
Cc{ii}=C(:,ii);
end
data=vertcat(Ac,Bc,Cc);

xlab={'Hey','this','works','pretty','nicely.','And','it','has','colors','!!!!'};
col=[102,255,255, 200;
51,153,255, 200;

Can anyone help me figure out why the legend is showing the colors in the reverse order? In the legend, Winter appears on top while Summer appears on the bottom.
A=SMR;%These are only Summer.
B=WNTR; %These are only Winter.
data=vertcat(Ac,Bc);
multiple_boxplot(data',xlab,{'Summer', 'Winter'},col')

Catherine is right. But it doesn't matter. Thanks!

Hi Ander,

In the preamble of the function you mention that "data is a cell matrix of MxL", but later in the code, you write :

M=size(data,2);
L=size(data,1);

In the MATLAB language, the first dimension is the number of rows, and the second the number of columns. The description in the preamble is thus misleading.
