wx and matplotlib

I am trying to put together a wxPython frame using py.aui to show multiple matplotlib.figures/canvas.

Would like that each figure takes x percentage of available screen estate. I.e. would like e.g. to have 2 rows with 3 columns of figures/statistics, i.e. 6 graphics.

If the total screen estate is too small then there should be scrollbars per figure/canvas.

Hopefully some samples code (in the example files which existed in 0.90.x) can put me in the right direction, otherwise I will try to put together a stand alone sample (without access to my database) to show my problem.

I'd recommend you take a look at wxMPL -- it's a nice way to embed MPL in wx.

To be clear with the vocabulary -- in MPL, a "figure" would be one wxWindow. In that you can put multiple "axes" which show the actual plots (sometimes referred to as subplots). In this case, I'm not sure if you want more than one MPL figure.

If the total screen estate is too small then there should be scrollbars per figure/canvas.

If you want multiple figures, than this isn't really an MPL question. You'd do that layout the same way you would with any other set of wxWindows -- probably putting them all on a wxScrolledWindow, in Sizers, and giving them a minimum size.

With a single MPL Figure, it would be similar, put it on wxScrolledWindows, with a minimum size set.

Hopefully some samples code (in the example files which existed in 0.90.x)

Is this what you are looking for?

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/index.html

in particular, you might want to look at the wx examples here:

I'll have a look at this.

I am not sure yet if multiple axes/subplots is the way to go or to have
multiple figures. I was leaning towards multiple figures, each a pane
in AUI, to allow the user to size them how they want.

O.K. will play with this. In the mean time I found also some sample
code from the matplotlib doc/gallery (great piece of documentation!!!!!).

Yes, this is what I was looking for. Although it is a pity that these
do not have the sample graph as is shown in the gallery - but looking at
both I think I should find what I need.

Thanks for the tips
Werner
