OK, I see (kind of, i.e., via the pylab interface) how to do it -
indirectly, i.e., by catching the click-on-figure event, then figuring
out where that event happened and comparing that to the locations of the
figure's pieces -
Does MPL have some kind of hit-testing built-in? this seems a bit harder than it should be.
using matplotlib only, so here's hoping that wxmpl has
made it A) more direct (i.e., provided some way to access a figure's
pieces seemingly directly, i.e., without having to figure out where in
the figure those pieces are as an explicit intermediate step), and
thereby B) easier.
I don't' think so....
However, Mplot may be worth a look-see:
As far as I can tell, it provides a user-editable plot. However, I can't tell with a quick perusal if you can click on an axis and get feedback for that.
It would be nice if wxMPL and MPlot shored a code base, but alas -- they were started independently.
