fill with a semilogy axis?

A colleague posed an interesting challenge:
How to do a filled plot having the y-axis in logarithm?
I think I can do it with creating patches myself an adding it to the axis, but isn't there anything built-in?

Best regards,
Michael

Does fill_between() not work for you? Note, I have never tried it on a log scale plot.

Hi Michael,

I use fill_between() and log axis without problems in the following way (it’s by memory, I hope the sintax is correct)

fig = plt.figure()

spl = fig.add_subplot(111)

spl.fill_between(x,y1,y2)

spl.set_yscale(“log”)

plt.show()

Cheers,

Fra
