How do you use ticklabel_format?

Hello,

    I'm trying to make a simple plot that doesn't use scientific
notation for the x axis since the axise only goes from 1 to 1600. I
tried using ticklabel_format like this:

from pylab import *

l, cltt = loadtxt('ABF_20_20.dat',unpack=True)
semilogx(l, cltt)
xlim(1,1600)
ax = gca()
ax.ticklabel_format(style='plain',axis='x')
show()

I get this error "This method only works with the ScalarFormatter".
which seems to be the error refered to in the documentation. However,
I'm not sure how to fix the problem? Is there way to use this
ScalarFormatter some how? Did I code it wrong?

   If anyone knows how to get the xaxis to not display scientific
notation this would be helpful. Thanks.

does this help?

from pylab import *
a = arange(1600)
plot(a,a)
xscale('log')
from matplotlib.ticker import ScalarFormatter
ax = gca().xaxis
ax.set_major_formatter(ScalarFormatter())

Sebastian,

    Thanks, your hint worked.
