changing the cursor position with a key press

Does anyone have an example showing how to change the cursor position
using the key pad instead of the mouse?

Are you talking about externally to mpl or within mpl? I have some code from a couple of months ago that automated graph interaction that allowed me to exactly reproduce various actions so I could profile the execution.

It uses the Gtk accessibility framework to control the mouse.

I'm looking for something like

---------
display = gdk_display_get_default ();
    screen = gdk_display_get_default_screen (display);

    /* get cursor position */
    gdk_display_get_pointer (display, NULL, &x, &y, NULL);

    /* set new cusor position */
    x += xadd;
    y += yadd;
    gdk_display_warp_pointer (display, screen, x, y);

Here is how to do it
    display=mainwindow.get_display()
    screen = gtk.gdk.Display.get_default_screen(display)
    x,y=mainwindow.get_pointer()
    s,x,y,m = display.get_pointer()
    gtk.gdk.Display.warp_pointer(display, screen,x+1,y)

Ok, glad that works for you. For reference, the email I was referring to is here:

http://www.mail-archive.com/matplotlib-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg08321.html

The toolkit offers a bunch of other tools for scripting out interaction, in case anybody cares about that sort of thing. (actually, might be a good idea to consider adding stuff like that to the testing suite…)
