background color of text plots as foreground

Hello list,

I am trying to set the backgroundcolor of a textbox:

from pylab import *

plot([1, 2, 3])

text(1, 2, ‘Hello’, backgroundcolor = ‘red’)

This plots a nice red box but no text. It looks like the backgroundcolor is set as the foreground. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? mpl version 1.4.3

Thanks, Mark

Which backend are you using? It works fine for me with a recent-ish master using Qt4Agg backend.

Fails on MacOSX backend.

Just tried it, and it works fine with the QT backend.

So I guess a MacOSX bug…

Thanks for your help,
