shared xaxis and set_xticklabels([])

Dear all,

is it possible to use a shared xaxis for several plots and switch off
the xticklabels on all but the lowest plot?

When I use ax.set_xticklabels([]) on one of the shared xaxis, the
ticklabels on all xaxis vanishes...???

Example:
ax0 = pylab.axes( [0.1, 0.05, 0.88, 0.22] )
plot...
ax1 = pylab.axes( [0.1, 0.27, 0.88, 0.22], sharex = ax0)
plot...
ax2 = pylab.axes( [0.1, 0.49, 0.88, 0.22], sharex = ax0)
ax2.set_xticklabels([])
plot...

The result is that neither ax0 nor ax1 have any xticklabes shown.

I am using matplotlib 0.87 on Debian Etch.

Marcus

the set_visible method of the axis object should do the trick:

ax1.get_xaxis().set_visible(False)

same for ax2.
