axis formatting

Hi Uri,

What version of matplotlib are you using? I guess the get_frame()
method is deprecated (but still available) in the recent version of
matplotlib. Instead, frame and patch attributes can be used.

I only started looking into the code behind the matplotlib recently so
I don't know much about how it can be handled in the older version. I
suggest you upgrade to the recent version of matplotlib if possible.
Or you may wait for others to answer.

I'll send you Tony's class in a separate email. But I'm not sure if it
will work with older versions.
Regards,

-JJ

Hi JJ,

Thanks for the suggestion...I think we are close. First, the AxesSubplot
object which is returned from ax=gca() does not have a 'frame'
object/attribute. However, ax.get_frame() gives me a rectangle object, but
when I call the set_visible(False) method, it turns the background gray
while leaving all the axes in place (the inverse behavior of what you said
below). Any idea how to reverse this?

Also, the link to the attachment for Tony's class is broken. Any idea where
I could get the file?

Thanks!
Uri

You can suppress the tick marks on the top and right axis as Mathieu
suggested. Setting frame_on as False will suppresse both the bounding
lines and the white background patch of the axes. You can suppress
only the bounding lines by

ax = gca()
ax.frame.set_visble(False)

Note that this will delete not only the top and the right axis lines
but also the bottom and the left ones.
Therefore, you need to manually draw the axis lines (bottom and left).

p, = ax.plot([0,0],[0,1], "k-", transform=ax.transAxes)
p.set_clip_on(False)
p, = ax.plot([0,1],[0,0], "k-", transform=ax.transAxes)
p.set_clip_on(False)

You may consider to use a custom axes class by Tony.
