Colorbar not plotting the right colours

I'm having trouble using the colorbar/colormap functions. I create a test plot, plotting a bar graph from 0,0 to 100,100 and created a color bar. I would like the color bar to correspond to the y values of the graph. Which means, if looking at the xaxis, the graph would be colored in the same order as the colorbar from 0->100 by matching the y-values to the colorbar values.
It seems to be plotting the value 0 corresponding to the colorbar which is purple/black every time which I believe is the z-value. Mainly see colorbar/maps used for contour plots but I would like it to work for a 2D plot.

Consider creating an indexed image instead of a bar chart. Then you can write each bar as a column with the gray level of the color you want. Apply the colormap and that column of pixels will show up in the desired color.
If you want a color gradient in each bar, then that is more complicated - you'd have to write a ramp of pixel levels rather than a constant pixel level that corresponds to the tallest color.
rows = 100;
columns = 100;
indexedImage = zeros(rows, columns, 'uint8');
for col = 1 : 100
row1 = rows-col+1
indexedImage(row1:rows, col) = col;
colormap(gca, jet(rows));
caxis([0, rows]);
Modify as needed.

You cannot create a colorbar for bar() graphs in Matlab. What you can do is use a loop to create a separate bar graph for each color.
See this answer for an example.
