# `DrawMode`

Orientation of boxes and bars

MuPAD® notebooks will be removed in a future release. Use MATLAB® live scripts instead.

MATLAB live scripts support most MuPAD functionality, though there are some differences. For more information, see Convert MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts.

## Value Summary

 Optional `Horizontal` or `Vertical`

## Graphics Primitives

ObjectsDrawMode Default Values
`plot::Bars2d`, `plot::Boxplot`, `plot::Histogram2d``Vertical`

## Description

`DrawMode` = `Vertical` versus `DrawMode` = `Horizontal` determines the orientation of boxes in a box plot and bars in bar plots and histogram plots.

A plot of type `plot::Boxplot` serves for visualizing and comparing statistical data samples. The plot reduces the data to few simple descriptive parameters.

One coordinate direction provides information on the statistical data (25% quantile, median, 75% quantile etc.). The other coordinate direction just serves for placing several boxes associated with different data samples side by side for comparison.

With `DrawMode` = `Vertical`, the vertical direction provides the information on the statistical data.

With `DrawMode` = `Horizontal`, the boxes are turned by 90 degrees. Now, the horizontal direction provides the information on the statistical data.

Corresponding statements hold for the bars in a 2D bar plot of type `plot::Bars2d` and 2D histograms of type `plot::Histogram2d`.

## Examples

### Example 1

We create a box plot:

```data1 := [2, 6, 4, 3, 1, 7, 9, 5, 3]: data2 := [2, 4, 8, 8, 7, 6, 8, 7, 3, 1, 10]: data3 := [stats::normalRandom(6, 2)() \$ k = 1 .. 100]: plot(plot::Boxplot(data1, data2, data3, Notched = TRUE)):```

The boxes are rendered horizontally:

```plot(plot::Boxplot(data1, data2, data3, Notched = TRUE, DrawMode = Horizontal)):```

`delete data1, data2, data3:`
