# ticklabels

Hi John,

I added one line that shows the problem. If you do a set_xticks() first,
then the usual ([]) doesn't blank them. Here's code that should suppress
the xticks for all but the bottom-most graphs in each column. It works if
you comment out the set_xticks line (HERE HERE HERE).

Is this comment better for -users or -devel? Or bug tracking?

from matplotlib.matlab import *
NUMPLOTS = 8
COLS = 3
ROWS = NUMPLOTS / COLS
if NUMPLOTS % COLS: ROWS += 1

t = arange(0.0, 2.0, 0.01)
s = sin(2*pi*t)
for i in range(1,NUMPLOTS+1):
ax = subplot (ROWS, COLS, i)
plot(t, s)

for i in range(1,NUMPLOTS+1):
ax = subplot (ROWS, COLS, i)
ax.set_xticks((0,1,2)) # HERE HERE HERE
title('Simple ' + str(i))
if i % COLS == 1: # left edge
ax.set_ylabel('voltage (mV)')
else:
ax.set_yticklabels ([])
if i > NUMPLOTS - COLS: # nothing below them
ax.set_xlabel('time (s)')
else:
ax.set_xticklabels ([])

savefig('simple_plot')
show()
