How to label the curve instead of using legend?

111 views (last 30 days)
I wrote a code to plot a lot of graphs but while visualizing it becomes difficult to accertain which curve I am looking at, as some curves seems to have similar color. Is there any way I can add a name to the curve which is displayed the on the curve ( not like legend, it would appear near the individual curve) ?

How about using text instead as follows?:
x = -pi:0.01:pi;
y1 = cos(x);
y2 = sin(x);
plot(x,y1,'b-'); hold on
plot(x,y2,'r-'); hold off
text(x(end),y1(end),"cos(x)",'Color','blue');
text(x(end),y2(end),"sin(x)",'Color','red');

Hi,
You can label your curve using text. Choose one of the point on each curve and add text in there to serve as a label.
Example:
openExample('graphics/LabelPointOnGraphExample') % use MATLAB Online
