Plot 1 point at a time, results in very bad performance and the figuring entering a state of non-response

Please respond on list so others can benefit and contribute to the

In order to do this well, you need to use your user interface idle
handler. The example I used was just to illustrate the line handling,
but for real work you should set you update function in either an idle
handler or a timeout handler. Look in the examples/animation
directory for
different examples for each user interface (see also the animations
cookbook tutorial at

The way to do this differs for each toolkit, and we have examples for
many in the examples directory I pointed you to above. Does anyone
have an example of how to do proper idle handling with tk?

Hey John. Your suggestion has definitely made a large improvement, but while
it is still running, if you select any of the windows, python or the figure,
the figure will still enter a state of non-response. I have tried something
very similar in matlab and have observed no problems. Do you have any other
advice or suggestions
