markerfacecolor in legend

Hi,

I would like to have a different marker facecolor in the legend that in
the plot. Is there any way to change this color?=20

In more detail my problem is the following. I plotted 6 dataset. They

are divided in 2 groups; one with blue and the other with red color.
In each group I have used 3 different markers. I have annotated the
meaning of the color in the plot, so I don't need a legend with 6 lines.

I only need 3, but I would like that the markers in this plot will be
empty (markerfacecolor=3Dwhite). Is it possible?

Best regards,

Zunbeltz

Hi Zunbeltz,

you could include some fake-lines outside the visible regionm which get your
favorite label like

plot([0], [0], label='my favorite label for squares', marker='s',
color='black', mfc='white', mec='black')

and don't use labels for the original data.

Kind regards
Matthias

Hi Zunbeltz,

Dear Matthias

you could include some fake-lines outside the visible regionm which get your
favorite label like

plot([0], [0], label='my favorite label for squares', marker='s',
color='black', mfc='white', mec='black')

and don't use labels for the original data.

I did in a similar way
l1 = plot(datax, datay, label='my favorite label for squares',
marker='s', color='black', mfc='white', mec='black')
plot(datax, daty, label='my favorite label for squares', marker='s',
color='black', mfc='red', mec='black')

I plot the data 2 times and them in the legend only add the firs line
with white markers

legend([l1],[label])

But I think this functionality should not be difficult to implement
directly and maybe someone has done it.

Best regards
