**title().**

This guide will explore how to add the title to a figure in MATLAB using the **title()** function.

## How to Add Title to a Figure in MATLAB

MATLAB has a wide built-in functions library to perform many tasks. One such function is the** title() **function which is responsible for creating titles and subtitles in a figure in MATLAB. This function accepts a string containing the title of a figure as an input and adds that title to the specified figure.

**Syntax**

The **title()** function uses different syntaxes in MATLAB, which are as follows:

title(titletext,subtitletext)

title(___,Name,Value)

Here,

- The function
**title(titletext)**is responsible for adding a figure title. We can also implement this function for replacing the old title with a new title. - The function
**title(titletext, subtitletext)**is responsible for adding the subtitle under the title. - The
**function title(___,Name,Value)**is responsible for modifying the appearance of a title utilizing one or more Name, Value pair parameters.

## Example 1: How to Add Title to a Figure in MATLAB

This MATLAB code creates a 2D plot corresponding to the given expression using the **plot()** function. After that, it uses the **title()** function to add a title to the generated plot.

title('Current Axis')

## Example 2: How to Add Subtitle to a Figure

In this example, we create a 2D plot using the **plot()** function and add title and subtitle to the current axis of the created plot using the **title()** function.

title('Current Axis',date)

## Example 3: How to Add Variable’s Value in Title

In this example, we create a 2D plot using the **plot()** function and add the f variable’s value in the title of the created plot using the **title()** function.

plot(rand(1,10).^3)

c = 10;

f = 9/5*(c+32);

title(['Temperature is ',num2str(f),' F'])

## Conclusion

Adding a title to a figure is the most common task used for figure identification. With MATLAB, we can quickly perform this task using the built-in **title()** function that accepts a title string as an input argument and adds that title to the given figure. This article has provided in detail how to use the **title()** function in MATLAB with different syntaxes and an example for each syntax. This will help us understand the working of the **title()** function in MATLAB.
