This bug depends on bug #62882.  I submitted a changeset there to get the ticklabelrotation properties to work, but it isn't very good.  A better solution probably requires more work.

the functions have been created.  the graphics backend to rotate the labels has not been. hence changing the properties manually or by those functions has no effect. At this point non-result is the expected outcome until that feature is implemented.

It is documented though.
Is there some way to rotate labels?
I get the same non-result with

set (hax, [ax, "ticklabelrotation"], arg);

See bug #64716: The functionality behind xtickangle is not yet implemented. That will be documented for Octave 9. But it will still not yet work with that version.

Hello, xtickangle(angle) does nothing to the plot.
I mean, it changes the angle, 'cause if I call xtickangles afterwards I get the angle I prescribed, but in the plot nothing changes.

The very same 2 lines code:


works in matlab

Thank you
