How to change the textsize inside a legend?

Hello,

Hello Fabien,

There is a font size attribute to legend. Here is the description from the docstring:

fontsize: [ size in points | ‘xx-small’ | ‘x-small’ |

‘small’ | ‘medium’ | ‘large’ | ‘x-large’ | ‘xx-large’ ]

Set the font size. May be either a size string, relative to

the default font size, or an absolute font size in points. This

argument is only used if prop is not specified.

Cheers,

Nelle

I don't wish to appear rude as this list is associated with the Python language, but do you ever try a search engine before you ask a question?

Actually I had some problems to find the solution on the web.

Finally I’ve used: matplotlib.rcParams[‘legend.fontsize’] = 25.0 and it works well

To avoid (not so) rude answer like Mark's one, please try first to refer
to:
- the documentation of the pyplot's commands you use
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/api/pyplot_api.html
It tries (pretty well IMHO) to be comprehensive, at least for 99% of use
cases,

- you can set, once for all, the properties of most matplotlib objects
in the configuration file. An example is here:
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/customizing.html#a-sample-matplotlibrc-file
It may be a good starting point to determine the name of the property
you are looking for.
