Hi!
I have a 2D plot and I want to appear on each point of the graph, the number of lines corresponding to the matrix of data.
Is there any way?
Thank you!

Can you provide us with an example?

Hi Thodoris. Can you explain a bit more your question? I don't understand which lines you want to show in the 2D plot?

my data are in two columns:
300 3.345
301 4.456
303 5.789
I have the plot from these data. I want to each point in the graph to write the number of line. for example, in the point (300, 3.345) to write 1.

Thodoris - if you want to write the row (or line) that each point corresponds to, try using the text function. Something like
figure;
data = [300 3.345
301 4.456
303 5.789];
xlim([min(data(:,1))-1,max(data(:,1))+1]);
ylim([min(data(:,2))-1,max(data(:,2))+1]);
sRows = num2str([1:size(data,1)]');
text(data(:,1),data(:,2),sRows);
The xlim and ylim are just used for illustration purposes to ensure that we can see the area we are interested in (that given by data). We then create a vector of strings, one for each row number using
sRows = num2str([1:size(data,1)]');
and then label each point in data with those strings using text.
Try the above and see what happens!

Try this:
m=[...
300 3.345
301 4.456
303 5.789]
for row = 1 : size(m, 1)
x = m(row, 1);
y = m(row, 2);
plot(x, y, 'b*', 'MarkerSize', 15);
hold on;
caption = sprintf('(%.3f, %.3f)', x, y);
text(x+0.8, y, caption, 'FontSize', 15);
end
grid on;
xlim([296, 315]);
