Is there a way to annote the fitting parameters with 95% coefficient into the plot. I am trying to do curve fit some data in a loop and want to displya the fitting results directly in the plot, may in some textbox. For example I am doing some curvefitting in the following code
%Generate data
x=-0:0.1:10;
x=transpose(x);
y=2*exp(-x/5)+0.1*rand(numel(x),1);
%curve fitting
ft=fittype('a*exp(-x/b)','independent','x','dependent','y');
opts = fitoptions( 'Method', 'NonlinearLeastSquares' );
opts.Display = 'Off';
opts.StartPoint =[1,1,];
[fitresults,gof]=fit(x,y,ft,opts);
%showing plot
plot(fitresults,x,y,'.')
%display fit results
disp(fitresults)
Which generates plot like this
and the fitting results are displayed in the command window in the following way
General model:
fitresults(x) = a*exp(-x/b)
Coefficients (with 95% confidence bounds):
a = 2.031 (2.015, 2.047)
b = 5.329 (5.258, 5.4)
I want to display the fitting results inside the plot something like this
Is it possible to do using script.

coeffs = coeffnames(fitresults);
coeffvals= coeffvalues(fitresults);
ci = confint(fitresults,0.95);
str1 = sprintf('\n %s = %0.3f (%0.3f %0.3f)',coeffs{1},coeffvals(1),ci(:,1));
str2 = sprintf('\n %s = %0.3f (%0.3f %0.3f)',coeffs{2},coeffvals(2),ci(:,2));
annotation('textbox',[.4 .5 .5 .2],'String',['Coefficients (with 95% confidence bounds): ', str1, str2]);
