Hello everybody,

I would like to call a function when I close manually a window previously opened by a pylab.figure. I tried the following:

f = pylab.figure()

but it fails because the 'close_event' is not recognized as a valid event (button_press_event, axis_leave_event ...). Would you have any idea ?

thank you very much


Which version of matplotlib are you using?  "close_event" is a valid event identifier.

It was added in the most recent 1.0, so make sure you have that.
