pyplot.show

Hi all,

I am a beginner with matplotlib and doing my first steps with python
plotting.
However, I learned that pyplot.show really forces the display of already
existing plots.

For instance, when I type
In[2]: pyplot.plot([1,2,3])
Out[2]: [<matplotlib.lines.Line2D object at 0x2e33850>]

nothing happens until I type

In[3]: pyplot.show()

After that, the interpreter halts until I close the new figure window. Only
closing enables the interpreter to continue with my later input. Moreover,
typing
In[4]: pyplot.plot([1,2,3])

again would display the figure immediately. Seems the gtk engine or
something else must be started up by pyplot.show once and, once running, it
displays everything else after that instantly.
How can I tweak pyplot in such way that it would display my figures on the
very first pyplot.plot call without halting the input?

Thank you in advance for your help,
Thomas

may be you can try pyplot.ion()? it turns interactive mode on.
Hope this helps.

Hi,

thank you for the quick reply. Unfortunately, none of both works for me.

values = [1,2,3];

pyplot.ioff();

#pyplot.ion();

print pyplot.isinteractive();

pyplot.plot(values);

pyplot.show();

The value (True|False) of interactive mode does not make a difference to the plotting.

Other suggestionst?

Thanks so far!

oops, maybe use pyplot.ion() not pyplot.ioff(). and pyplot.show() is not needed.
just pyplot.plot(values) is enough to launch a new figure window and you can continue plot new lines or legend… interactively.
I test it on my pc: Windows XP, Python 2.5.4, Matplotlib 0.99.0.
