How can I put a string variable into a Figure Title?

197 次查看(过去 30 天)
FILE_NAME = '1.A.A';
figure('Name', 'Figure 1')
plot(X, Y, 'LineWidth', 1)
title('FILE %s: X vs Y (dB Mag)', FILE_NAME)
savefig('FILE %s: X vs Y.fig', FILE_NAME)
I have a large number of figures I'm plotting, so
I want to designate the variable FILE_NAME, and save the figures in my Current Folder.
  • Currently, I'm getting an error, "Incorrect number of input arguments"

I'd recommend saving them as PNG files with exportgraphics() or saveas() or export_fig().

You’re almost there!
Add a sprintf call and it does what you want:
title(sprintf('FILE %s: X vs Y (dB Mag)', FILE_NAME))
savefig(sprintf('FILE %s: X vs Y.fig', FILE_NAME))
I tested the title call. Since I don’t want to write the file to my computer, I didn’t test the savefig call. It should work. (It would likely help to include the figure handle as the first argument in the savefig call, just to be certain it’s doing what you want it to, although that’s snot required.)

FILE_NAME = '1.A.A';
hFig = figure; % Bring up a new figure, or hFig = gcf to get an existing figure handle.
hFig.Name = sprintf('%s', FILE_NAME); % or hFig.Name = 'Figure 1' or whatever
hFig.NumberTitle = 'off'; % No "Figure 1" in the title bar.
hFig.WindowState = 'maximized' % Maximize the figure window.
% Plot something...
plot(X, Y, 'LineWidth', 1)
caption = sprintf('FILE %s: X vs Y (dB Mag)', FILE_NAME);
title(caption, 'FontSize', 20);
% Prepare PNG filename:
baseFileName = sprintf('%s.png', FILE_NAME); % Tack on png extension so oeprating system will recognize it.
% folder can be pwd or wherever you want it to go.
folder = pwd; % current folder, or use 'D:\my images\' or wherever...
fullFileName = fullfile(folder, baseFileName);
% Save image to disk:
saveas(hFig, fullFileName); % Save to disk as a PNG format image.
