Hi, I am trying to construct an AxesLabel by using a combination of strings and previously defined variables. I have: mode = 1 (*this is changed ever so often*) Switch[mode, 0, sscript = "cert", 1, sscript = "auc", 2, sscript = "muc", 3, sscript = "adist", 4, sscript = "mdist"] plabel=Superscript["p",sscript] olabel=Superscript["o",sscript] I do this so I can, in this case, place the label "E(p^auc), E(o^auc)" on the Y-axis, where "^" of course means that the contents of the variable sscript is shown as a superscript of p or o. To do this in the Plot (2D), I tried different ways to define AxesLabel, and none of them worked: AxesLabel -> {"x", Print["E(", plabel, "),E(", olabel, ")"]} gives me what I want, but three times, row by row, like in a loop. AxesLabel -> {"x", "E(" <> ToString[plabel] <> "),E(" <> ToString [plabel] <>")"} removes the superscript formatting, and leads to a label: E(auc p), E (auc o) AxesLabel -> {"x", "E("plabel] "),E("olabel ")"} doesn't work either, it returns: )), E(E(p^auc o^auc Now I have run out of ideas on how to accomplish this. Any help is greatly appreciated.
