set gca()

Hi,

I am new to Matplotlib. I am using matplotlib under ipython. A function script generates a figure that has three subplots. The thing is that I would like to continue to interact with a specific subplot under the interactive prompt through pylab after I run that function. However, gca() returns the last subplot which is not what I want.

The question is if there is any way to tell gca() which Axes is the current Axes.

Thanks,

Tom

If you keep a reference to the Axes when you create it, or if you use gca() to return a reference before creating the next one, then you can use sca(ax) to make ax the current axes.
