 # Plot

I want to plot a list of 10 numbers. I want to plot each point after 5 secs
(first point in o sec and 2nd point after 5 sec anf so on) and want to plot
them in same graph.
How to do?

I got the solution as suggested by scott.
My new problem is:

Lets say I will generate lets two pairs of 10 random numbers, say x and y.

When first pair of x and y is generated, it will be plotted. Again when second set of number is generated, it will appear on the same graph and not on 2nd graph.

This will continue till 10th pair.

How to do this?

I guess adding a call to plt.figure() before each new figure should do
it. Eventually plt.close() just before that if you want to close figures
instead of keeping them open (but then you might also just be able to
clear the current one instead of closing/opening).

Can the codes be shared?

Hi Partha,

Here is some similar code. Run the code between the ...'s in a Jupiter notebook cell to create the first empty plot
...

# comment out this line if you are not running this in a jupyter notebook
%matplotlib notebook

import numpy as np
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt

def update_points(fig, pts, new_data):
# get the data for the points in the current plot
pts_data = pts.get_data()
# update the points using set_data with the
# new_data values appended to the current values
pts.set_data(np.append(pts_data, [new_data]),
np.append(pts_data, [new_data]))
# update the plot
fig.canvas.draw_idle()
# uncomment the next two lines if you want the plot to
# ax.relim()
# ax.autoscale_view(scaley=True)
return

# create a figure
# if you are running the code in ipython you may need to
# call plt.ion() after creating the figure
fig, ax = plt.subplots()

# set the plot's x and y limits if you know the range
# of the data you will generate. otherwise let
ax.set(xlim=[0,100], ylim=[0,100])

# plot an empty list to create the pts Line2D array
# with no data
pts = ax.plot(, 'o')

...

Then in the next cell(s) call update_points for each new data point to be plotted

...
new_data = [10, 10]
update_points(fig=fig, pts=pts, new_data=new_data)
...
new_data = [20, 40]
update_points(fig=fig, pts=pts, new_data=new_data)
...

Hope this helps,
Scott
