Hi everyone,
I have a 19x19 matrix and I want all the 0 values to mark with black color on the figure.
this is the code that I am using the generate my figure:
[R2, P2] = corrcoef(x_avg_cor_time2);
Any help would be appriciated! Thanks!

Please mention, what the problem with the current code is.

Hi Jan,
the following method comes up with black not just for values that are exactly zero (I don't know how likely that might be for a correlation coefficient calculation), but also for values that are near zero, with a precision that is related to the number of rows of the colormap.
n = size(colormap,1) % assuming you already have a plot up and running
b = max(R2,[],'all');
a = min(R2,[],'all');
ind = round(1+(-a/(b-a))*(n-1));
map = colormap;
map(ind,:) = [0 0 0];

Create a black underlayer and make the image transparent everywhere it is 0.
[R2, P2] = corrcoef(x_avg_cor_time2);
Z = zeros(size(R2,1), size(R2,2), 3); %black background
hold on
alphadata = double(R2 ~= 0);
h = imagesc(R2);
h.AlphaData = alphadata;
hold off
The disadvantage is that the black will not show up in the color bar.
As @David Goodmanson discussed, when you have a color present in the colorbar, it always describes a range of data, never an exact value. You could, for example, make a colormap that had 1024 entries and set one of them to black so that the color would cover (say) +/- 0.003 -- but you cannot get a colorbar entry to match an exact value when you have continuous data.
