axisGrid - blank subplots

I am using AxesGrid (from mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1 import AxesGrid) to generate multi-panel plots.
It does very well except I have a problem with a blank subplot.
I have 5 plots to display and the geometry of nrows_ncols=(3,2) produces the plot that I want
except there is a frame placed in the last position - for which I did not call a plot.

I cannot figure out an elegant way to supress this frame. The kludge I use now is to just set the
edgecolor of the last grid subplot to the background and so it is not visible.

All the examples have an even number of subplot figures so the grid is filled and this situation does not occur.

Hi Jim,

how's this:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1 import AxesGrid
ag = AxesGrid(plt.figure(),(0,0,1,1),(2,3))
ag.axes_all[-1].set_visible(False)

best,

···

You may use "ngrids" keyword parameter.
i.e.,., nrows_ncols=(3,2), ngrids=5
