# Change arrow head type for quiver plot in PGFPLOTS

I have multiple quiver plots in one figure and want to distinguish between them by the arrow head type/ style.

Can anyone help me, how the head can be changed?

Thanks, Peter

My MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
% -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{axis}[ ]
\end{axis}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

• Hi Peter, welcome to the site! You can format your code sample by selecting the code and clicking the {} button in the editor (or pressing Ctrl+K). – Jake Jun 18 '15 at 8:09
• If I compile your code, I get a quiver plot with stealth arrow heads. If I change -stealth to some other arrow head type, like -latex or ->, the arrow head in the picture also changes. Does that not work for you? – Jake Jun 18 '15 at 8:12
• Thanks for your great help! Or rather sorry for the too easy question... Sometimes pgfplots is easier than I assume... – Peter Jun 18 '15 at 8:16

You can change the arrow head type by putting -stealth, -latex, -> (or any of the other arrow head keys) in the \addplot [...] options:

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
