In this tutorial, we will discuss how to give a name and title to a figure using the `figure()`

function in MATLAB.

## Give a Name and Title to a Figure Using the `figure()`

Function in MATLAB

If you want to plot data on a figure and give the figure a name and title, you can use the `figure()`

function. You need to use the `Name`

property of the `figure()`

function to define its name. For example, let’s plot variables on a figure and give it a name and title. See the code below.

```
t = 1:0.01:2;
x1 = sin(2*pi*t);
figure('Name' , 'Title of the figure')
plot(t,x1)
```

Output:

In the above code, we have plotted a sine wave in a figure with a title. You can change the position of the figure using the `Position`

property, and you can change the units of the figure using the `Units`

property. Check this link for more details about the `figure()`

function.
