accessing colorbar() list of values

Hi,

I open another thread because I think this is not related.

I have figured out how to create scientific notation in the color bar.
However, by default Python creates really ugly values for printing:

1.165E+00, 1.167E+00… etc.

I figure that they are stored somewhere in a list.

I could do :

cb=colorbar(ax=ax1, orientation=‘horizontal’,format=’%.e’)

and then with:
cb.ax.get_xmajorticklabels

i get:

<bound method Axes.get_xmajorticklabels of <matplotlib.axes.Axes object at 0x5716210>>

But do I actually modify this list I have no clue…

Would be happy to know if somebody knows

Yeah, I don’t think that is what you want. I believe the ‘ax’ you are referencing there is the figure axes. How do you want the numbers to appear?
