Removing the white border around graph

Hi,

I have a newbie question regarding matplotlib. I want to plot a graph without the white border around it. I googled a lot but didn't find anything useful. The following code produces a graph without any ticks and it also makes the white border around the graph transparent.

···

##########
import matplotlib
matplotlib.use('AGG')

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
fig = plt.figure(num = None, figsize = (float(size[0])/dpi, float(size[1])/dpi))
plt.axes(axisbg=white, frameon = True)
fig.set_frameon(False)

#Set axes and disable ticks
plt.ylim(miny, maxy)
plt.xlim(0,length)
plt.yticks([])
plt.xticks([])
...
plt.savefig(outfile, dpi = dpi, transparent = transparent)
##########

I would like to know how to make the frame around the graph disappear completely so that the resulting image contains the graph in full size.

Hmm...i am also curious if it is possible to display the tick markers inside the graph.

Best regards and thanks for your help,

Lion

Hello ,

i'm not sure if your problem was resolved in the mean time. If this is not the
case the following may help:

plt.axes(axisbg=white, frameon = True)
-> plt.axes([0,0,1,1], axisbg=white, frameon = True)

where the first list descibes
[left, bottom, width, height] in normalized (0, 1) coordinates of the figure.

regards Matthias

There is an rc parameter (see
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/customizing.html) controlling
this

    xtick.direction : in # direction: in or out

and ditto for ytick.
