font for errorbar plot

Dear Users,

            Is there a way to set font size of error bar plot axis? I tried below one but get error that "'ErrorbarContainer' object has no attribute 'xaxis'"

any help??

ax=plt.errorbar(y,x,err,label=‘STDV’)
plt.xlim(0,110)
for tick in ax.xaxis.get_major_ticks():
tick.label.set_fontsize(14)

Use ax.tick_params (

).

Hope that helps,

Paul is correct ("plt.tick_params(labelsize=14)"), but in addition, the error you are making is that errorbar does not return an Axes. To get a reference to the Axes you could follow the call to plt.errorbar() with "ax = plt.gca()".

Use ax.tick_params
(http://matplotlib.org/api/axes_api.html?highlight=tick_params#matplotlib.axes.Axes.tick_params).
