At the end of the day, i want to have a histogram where the xaxis are my values, the yaxis are the counts and i need another dimension and would like to add it similar to scatter3 with colours. So each bar would consist of stripes with colours refering to another vector of the same length of my data. > > Is this possible?
It's probably easiest to do this using the surf function. Use histc to calculate the y values, and then use surf to plot striped bars. Just set the z values of the surf to some constant value.
