MATLAB: Problem with plotting two x-Axes and y-Axes


Dear all,
Here is my plot:
I want to convert it to something like this picture below that I found on google:
Here is my code: I want to plot, plot() and area() as regular and plot bar() like the picture above (inverse)
h = plot(t);
newcolors = ['#77AC30'; '#0072BD';'#D95319';'#7E2F8E';'#EDB120';'#4DBEEE';'#A2142F'];
box on
grid on
xlim([1 12]);
ylim([0 70]);
hold on
hh = area(Obs,'LineStyle','none');
hh.FaceAlpha = 0.4;
hh.FaceColor = [0 0 0];
set(gca, 'YGrid', 'off', 'XGrid', 'off')
%VVVVV % HERE is second plot % VVVV
hold on % plot bar chart
cc = bar(t);
I tried:
ax1_pos = ax1.Position; % position of first axes
ax2 = axes('Position',ax1_pos,...
But it isn't accomplished well.
Thank you all.

  • Use yyaxis to plot the plot() and area() on the left axis and the bar() on the right axis. Then flip the direction of the right axis as Tommy recommended. It will look something like this.
    yyaxis left
    hold on
    plot(. . .)
    area(. . .)
    yyaxis right
    hold on
    bar(. . .);
    set(gca, 'YDir', 'reverse')
    If you need any help implementing that, show me what you've got and I can help straighten it out.
