matplotlib and wing ide


I am looking for a way to get interactive plotting in wing ide to run
(preferably matplotlib). I have tried to thread the show() method of
matplotlib with a Timer from the threading module. This was suggested
in the wingware how-tos pdf. Unfortunately, it does not work for me.
The show() method does not return and the shell freezes. Has anyone
experience with interactive plotting in wing? Thanks in advance.

With kind regards,
