I'm currently using matplotlib with Plone/Zope to generate some graphics for temperature, wind speed and wind direction based on some data from Lake Tahoe. However, the currently layout of the legends box really restricts me from displaying the full set of data points on one graph.
Currently the legend layout is displayed as:
we want horizontal layout:
line1_color label1 line2_color label2 line3_color label3 ...
Also placing the horizontal layout below the x-axis title would be ideal.
Is there a way to create the horizontal layout in the current version of matplotlib?
I noticed that someone created a column layout in Aug 2006 but actually changed the legend code. If I need to I could look at the legend code myself to get the needed results.
I'm using the following:
python 2.3.5, win32
Thanks for any help
