Bring the legend to the front of a plot

Hi all,
I’m using a draggable legend (class, not function) with axes splines. Whenever I plot the legend using the host axes, the legend appears to behind all of the lines. I want the user to be able to drag the legend but I cannot select it when its inside the axes. If I move it outside the axes (by setting the location), I can drag it around. Is there anyway to bring the legend to the front?

Thanks,
Aman

Please post a sample script (short but complete) that demonstrates your problem.

Hi,

I’ve managed to fix it. It was a very simple solution. The axes are added in sequential, so I just used the latest axes to be added as the basis for the legend. I’ve attached a modification of a matplotlib example (multiple_y_axis_with_splines.py) to show the behavior.

Perhaps the example should be updated.

Aman
