Thanks for that. I thought I recalled seeing the example you mentioned, but obviously it was a different one.
I tried the code you gave me and it worked perfectly. Thanks very much!

The approach I suggested doesn't affect the x and y axes, only the

def myfmt(x,y): return 'myfmt (%1.2f, %1.2f)'%(x,y) ax = subplot(111)
ax.format_coord = myfmt
