I want to make some mods to a few selected tick labels.

For example, if I do

  label = axes.yaxis.get_major_ticks()[2].label
  label.set_fontsize(size)
  label.set_rotation('vertical')

the font size and the orientation of the tick label is changed. However, if try
 
  label.set_text('Foo')


the tick label is *not* modified.

Any clues?

Best regards,

I can't seem to reproduce your issue.  If I call "label.get_text()" after calling "label.set_text('Foo')", I get 'Foo' back.  Did you mean that the text on the plot was not updated?  If so, I wouldn't be totally surprised.  Which version of matplotlib (and backend) are you using?

Cheers!
