picking objects

Hello everyone,

I am trying to implement object picking in my matplotlib-based
plotting application. I found two examples. The 'picker_demo.py'
demo is very nice and looks a lot simpler than the 'object_picker.py'
which requires you to use your own Canvas object. But since
object_picker needs to have the event.inaxes object, it seems
impossible to catch any events outside the axes' bounding box, like
'click on axes title', or 'click on ticks' or 'click on xlabel'.

Is there any possibility to do so ?

BTW, is it possible to detect double-clicks?

Best regards,
