linestyles in LineCollection

I've been trying to change the linestyles in a LineCollection, but
without any success...

If I'm using:
col = collections.LineCollection(listXY, linewidths=circwdt,
colors=circcol, linestyle='solid', label=plabel)

it works fine, but anything other than 'solid' gives me an error when
the code calls FigureCanvasAgg.draw(self) (it is a wxpython app):

From the MPL docs, I see that i should be able to use other linestyles:

I can't reproduce the error on 0.99. Can you provide a complete script that reproduces the error?

Here.

I found out that if I use

from pylab import *

as in the example, it works. But in my app, I'm using

import wx
import matplotlib
from matplotlib.figure import Figure
from matplotlib.backends.backend_wxagg import FigureCanvasWxAgg as FigureCanvas
from matplotlib.backends.backend_wxagg import NavigationToolbar2WxAgg
from matplotlib.font_manager import fontManager, FontProperties
from matplotlib.collections import LineCollection

could that be the culprit?

Carlos

script:

from pylab import *
import numpy as np

from matplotlib.collections import LineCollection

# We need to set the plot limits, the will not autoscale
ax = axes()
ax.set_xlim((-1,1))
ax.set_ylim((-1,1))

strike = [0,45,90,135]
dip = [10,20,30,40]

listXY = []
for i in range(len(strike)):
    beta = np.radians(strike[i])
    phi = np.radians(np.arange(-90,92,2))
    lamb = np.radians((90 - dip[i]))
    alpha = np.arccos(np.cos(phi) * np.cos(lamb))
    tq = np.sqrt(2) * np.sin(alpha/2)
    sint = np.sin(phi) / np.sin(alpha)
    temps = 1 - (sint * sint)
    x = tq * np.sqrt(temps)
    y = tq * sint
    x1 = np.cos(beta) * x + np.sin(beta) * y
    y1 = -np.sin(beta) * x + np.cos(beta) * y
    listXY.append(zip(x1,y1))

col = LineCollection(listXY, linewidths=1, colors='red', linestyles = 'dotted')
ax.add_collection(col, autolim=True)

show()

Hi there

I found that the error is related to legend! If I disable

self.plotaxes.legend(bbox_to_anchor=(0.95, 0.95), loc=2,
prop=FontProperties(size='small'),numpoints=1)

I can change the linestyles and it works like a charm, but if I turn
on that line again... just errors.

can anyone think of something?

best

Carlos
