# (no subject)

Dear Users,

I
want to plot a XY, the X-value is constant, but let assume Y varees from 1-10, so I want o have different colors accordingly for the range 0-2,2-4,4-6,6-8,8-10.

thanks a lot

There is undoubtedly a more efficient way to do this, but give this a shot:

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

x = np.arange(0, 10.5, 0.5)
y = -3.0*x + 0.5*x**2

color_list = ['FireBrick', 'Orange', 'DarkGreen', 'DarkBlue', 'Indigo']
limits = np.arange(0, 11, 2)
fig, ax1 = plt.subplots()
for n, color in enumerate(color_list):
lower = np.where(x >= limits[n])
upper = np.where(x <= limits[n+1])
index = np.intersect1d(lower, upper)
ax1.plot(x[index], y[index], linestyle='-', color=color, linewidth=2)

plt.show()

HTH,
-paul

Another way (if you're ok with only coloring the markers) would
be to use ax1.scatter(x,y,c=colorlist) where the length of all
three arguments is the same. Scatter can do that with the size of
the markers by passing the s= argument.

best,

for n, color in enumerate(color_list):

``````lower = np.where(x >= limits[n])

upper = np.where(x <= limits[n+1])

index = np.intersect1d(lower, upper)

ax1.plot(x[index], y[index], linestyle='-', color=color, linewidth=2)
``````

plt.show()

HTH,

Alternatively, you could replace the loop above with::

``````indexes = np.searchsorted(x, limits)
# add 1 to end index so that segments overlap
for i0, i1, color in zip(indexes[:-1], indexes[1:]+1, color_list):

ax1.plot(x[i0:i1], y[i0:i1], linestyle='-', color=color, linewidth=2)
``````

This is not much different than Paul’s example—just whatever you find more readable.
