Embedding in existing application window

Thanks for responding to my plea, Ken! I've already looked at the Wiki and even looked at the code for wxMpl. From how I understand the way that wxMpl works it creates a separate instance of the WXAgg GUI. Not really what I wanted. I want to place the existing PythonCard component of the main window to display the plot. I'm sorry I haven't been more articulate .... I'm just starting to wade through this and Matplotlib has all the functionality that I need.

  There's a page on this topic in the matplotlib cookbook which ought to help
