copied text

Hello!

I’m new to matplotlib and want to draw a line chart. Everythings works fine with the great matplotlib. Now my question:

I would like to draw under the diagramm a text, which can be selected and copied. Is this possible? I guess the easiest way is to do it over a GUI (I’m using wxPython). Please let me now if there’s another (easier) way!

Kind regards

Stefanie

There isn't a way to do this in matplotlib itself -- none of the text matplotlib draws is interactive and selectable etc.

However, if you're embedded matplotlib in a wxPython GUI, you could stick a wxPython text widget underneath the plotting canvas and put whatever text you need there. The details of that are more of a wxPython issue than a matplotlib one -- but you can see a number of examples of embedding matplotlib inside of a wxPython GUI here:

Cheers,
Mike

I'd also check out wxMPL, it's a nice way to embedMPL in a GUI:
