How to define where x axis intercepts y axis

  1. Aug 17, 2011 #1
    I want to plot a bar plot using matlab.
    For example:

    x = [0.4 0.5 0.7 0.2 0.1 0.8]
    ylim([0 1])

    now I want the x axis to intercept the y axis at 0.5 so that any bars >0.5 lie above the x axis and any bars <0.5 are below.

    Is this possible?

    I'd look into overlaying a horizontal line on top of your bar graph:
