access to my underlying data from within picker or pick_handler

I am trying to change the underlying data for my plot via a pick event,
except that the matplotlib examples for picking show a couple of functions
with predefined signatures and I can't seem to figure out how to modify my
data from within those functions...how to do it?

Here is a minimal example of what I am trying to do:

[code]
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

def pick_rlines(art,mouseevent):
   button = mouseevent.button
   key = mouseevent.key
   
   wsf.nnn = 4 # <-- how to modify wsf.nnn from here?
   print "wsf.nnn = ", wsf.nnn
   props = dict(nnn=wsf.nnn)
   return True, props
       
def pick_handler(event):
   mouseevent = event.mouseevent
   button = mouseevent.button
   key = mouseevent.key
   art = event.artist
  
   wsf.nnn = event.nnn # <-- or from here ?
      
class AAA():
   pass

class BBB():
   def __init__(self):
      pass
      
   wsf=AAA() # when it is defined here?
   wsf.nnn=0
   GR = [1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0]

   fig = plt.figure()
   ax = fig.add_axes([0.1,0.1,0.75,0.75])
   ax.set_aspect(1)
   rlines = ax.hlines(GR,0.0,4.0,picker=pick_rlines)
   fig.canvas.mpl_connect('pick_event', pick_handler)
   plt.show()

if __name__ == '__main__':
   the = BBB()
   
[/code]

thanks in advance for any pointers.

In the code as you’ve written it, “the” is in the global namespace, and so your pick event handlers can see that variable. So you could write:

def pick_rlines(art,mouseevent):

button = mouseevent.button

key = mouseevent.key

the.wsf.nnn = 4 # “the” is in the global namespace

But a cleaner design would be to make the pick handler a class method of class “BBB”, eg

class BBB:

def init(self):

self.fig = blah_blah…

self.fig.canvas.mpl_connect(‘pick_event’, self.pick_handler)

self.wsf = blah_blah…

def pick_handler(self, artist, event):

self.wsf.nnn = 4 # wsf is in the class namespace

wsf.nnn=0

GR = [1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0]

fig = plt.figure()

ax = fig.add_axes([0.1,0.1,0.75,0.75])

ax.set_aspect(1)

rlines = ax.hlines(GR,0.0,4.0,picker=pick_rlines)

fig.canvas.mpl_connect(‘pick_event’, pick_handler)

plt.show()

if name == ‘main’:

the = BBB()

Thanks. That did the trick.
