Make markers in legend to appear only once

Hi:

I am plotting using markers, in a similar way than this example:

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/pylab_examples/legend_demo2.html

As you can see in the example above, the markers in the legend appear
twice: " 'green circle' 'green circle' oscillatory".

Is it possible to make the markers to appear only once, like " 'green
circle' oscillatory" ?

Regards,
Alejandro.

You can use the keyword "numpoints" in the legend method:

legend( (l2, l4), ('oscillatory', 'damped'), 'upper right', shadow=True, numpoints=1)

should do the job.

Thank you! It did the trick.

Now how you conclude that from the documentation is a mystery:

From the docs:

"
numpoints: integer
    The number of points in the legend line, default is 4"

Alejandro.

Ah, that's apparently a bug in the docs, which I've fixed in the sources.

I have to correct myself. John Hunter applied a patch which fixed the docs.
