Rotate legend ?

Hi guys,

I was wondering if it’s possible to rotate a legend ?

Thanks for your help.

I don' think these is a straight forward way to rotate the legend as a whole.
As a matter of fact, it is hardly possible with the current
implementation of the legend class. Could you explain why do you want
to have a rotated legend? An example figure (from other plotting
package) will be very helpful. If a rotated legend is desirable, I'll
work on to support it.

Regards,

Hi,

thanks for the answer. That’s what I thought.
I’m using a bar chart plot to do a Gantt Project planner (please see example). Since it’s not possible to draw horizontal bars, I plot a “normal” bar chart (vertical bars) and rotate the whole figure (please see attached file), this is why I need the legend to be 90°-rotated, so that it’s in the right position afterall.

Thanks for your time.

Regards.

Horizontal bar is possible, although i'm not sure it fits your need.

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/pylab_examples/barh_demo.html

Anyhow, with the current mpl, I guess it is much easy to make the
horizontal bars with rectangle patches (in case barh does not do what
you want), rather than trying to rotate the legend.

Such a shame… Anyway, I’m glad to learn horizontal bars are possible, I’ll try it.

Thanks for your answers.
