how to add text below the legend

Hi,

I would like to add some text relative to the legend,
let's say below it, and I don't know how to get the legend
coordinates so I can pass them to the text() method.

Does anyone know how to do it?

Alternatively, if there was a way to add text inside the
legend itself, it would also do the trick.

Thank you in advance.

Ernest

See if the example below works.

plot([1,2,3], label="test")
a=legend()

import matplotlib.offsetbox as offsetbox
txt=offsetbox.TextArea("Test 2")
box = a._legend_box
box.get_children().append(txt)
box.set_figure(box.figure)

For more control of legend, see the link below.
