Embedding an MPL Canvas/Figure in a PyGTK Container

Adding line:
ax.set_xlabel(“asdf”)

To file (matplotlib examples):
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/user_interfaces/embedding_in_gtk2.py

This sets the X-Label under the navigation toolbar. I am unable to set it such a way that the entire canvas is rendered in the container.

It would be of great help to know how this can be done.

Thanks,
W

The problem is really that the window is too small, the text is too large, and/or the axes is too large within the figure.

Try one or more of the following:

Replace the values for win.set_default_size to something larger, eg.

  win.set_default_size(800,600)

Replace the fig.add_subplot call with a fig.add_axes call that explicitly specifies the axes position:

   ax = fig.add_axes((0.2, 0.2, 0.6, 0.6))

Reduce the font size by adding the following to the top:

   from matplotlib import rcParams
   rcParams['font.size'] = 4

Reduce the dpi of the plot:

   fig = Figure(figsize=(5,4), dpi=60)

Cheers,
Mike

Thanks for your reply Mike. Looks like fig.add_axes(…) works the best for me for now. If my situation gets worse I will try and look into calls that allocate window area for the figure/canvas in a container.

Thanks again!
