%I want to display numbers such as .0254 in my legend as opposed to 0.2. How do I change that?
%Some of my Script below:
%2-D plot
if ic == 1
%Color and marker code for creating 2-D plots
Ncm = 6; scm = ['r-';'g:';'b-';'m:';'c-';'k:'];
h = zeros(Ny,1); st = zeros(Ny,9);
%Plot curves of T(x,y) for various y values
nfig = nfig+1; figure(nfig)
for j = 1:Ny
h(j) = plot(x,T(:,j),scm(j,:),'LineWidth',2); hold on
st(j,:) = sprintf('%5.1f = y',yy(j));
end
title('2-D Temperature Distribution of Long Wooden Beam')
grid,xlabel('X Values'),ylabel('Temperature (C)')
legend(h,char(st),'Location','SouthEast')
end
