 [Matplotlib-users] Program hangs when I call pylab.show() From: Grant Edwards - 2007-04-09 16:08:14 ```I'm following the 3D plotting examples I found at http://www.scipy.org/Cookbook/Matplotlib/mplot3D The problem is that my program hangs when I call pylab.show(), it never returns: my program hangs. How do I show a 3D plot without hanging my program? -- Grant Edwards grante Yow! Is this where people at are HOT and NICE and they visi.com give you TOAST for FREE?? ```
 Re: [Matplotlib-users] Program hangs when I call pylab.show() From: Lou Pecora - 2007-04-09 16:19:59 ```I assume you mean the first example, the wire frame (see below). It works for me. No problems.

 Re: [Matplotlib-users] Program hangs when I call pylab.show() From: Suresh Pillai - 2007-04-09 18:39:40 ```I get this behaviour as well, but only on first usage of show(). However, after that there is no problem. The default is to start off with interactive mode off, but the first usage of show() turns it on. So I would guess that the problem is that with interactive mode turned off, the figure window is not returning.

I hope to integrate the two event models so stuff like 3D rotations work. Unfortunately that probably won't be happening for some time yet. Ken ```
 [Matplotlib-users] Translating ticks a la MultipleLocator ? From: Iyer - 2007-04-10 13:06:44 ```I think this is a trivial question.. If there are a set of data points being plotted in a subplot, say 0 to 1000 points; the subplot displays the ticks as 0 to 1000 points and it is desired to "translate" those points to 0 t0 250 points on the subplot display - with point 0 mapping to point 0, point 250 mapping to point 2 and so on, what could be the best way to do this ?

Yes, you can certainly do this, but what we are suggesting is that it makes more sense to simply scale your data before plotting.

 Re: [Matplotlib-users] Translating ticks a la MultipleLocator ? From: Eric Firing - 2007-04-10 17:43:55 ```There seems to be a huge misunderstanding here, and I am not sure what it is, but what you need to do is run examples and experiment with variations until you have some inkling of what mpl is actually doing. Start with http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/tutorial.html. Please note that the ticks are simply labeled locations--they have no effect on what data are plotted. When you do ax.plot(ind*dt, y), absolutely *nothing* is lost; every value of y in your array is plotted. mpl is plotting (x,y) pairs--all of them--and labeling the axes accordingly. To see what is being plotted, you can use plot(x,y,'ro'), for example, to plot each point as a red circle. Experiment with this. Don't worry right now about avoiding the pylab interface; take advantage of its simplicity to get the most basic plotting concepts straightened out via quick experimentation. Use the gui zoom button to see how axis labeling works. Make your own simple examples; plot random points, plot sin waves.

I'm still a newbie and I acknowledge I have miles and miles to go before I can be someone who can help out in the Matplotlib group like you guys do. The problem is simple, it is like the date examples in the Matplotlib code -- the ticks for the date examples (seconds, hours, time etc) are different from the usual ticks, which is usually the number of samples. If only someone could guide me, so that I can understand better how to "translate" the ticks from the default "number of sample" ticks to that of different ticks - say new_ticks=original_ticks/(some_constant).

You are still asking the wrong question and applying the wrong solution, but dog-golly, you've earned the right to do it the wrong way! from matplotlib.ticker import FuncFormatter def myformatter(x, pos=None): return '%1.3f'%(x/4.) ax = subplot(111) ax.plot(x, y) ax.xaxis.set_major_formatter(FuncFormatter(myformatter)) Now all your ticks are magically divided by 4. But really, simply scaling your x input data is the way to go. If we want to move this conversation forward, you should try instead plot(x/4, y) and then explain as clearly as possibly this doesn't do what you want. ```
 Re: [Matplotlib-users] Translating ticks a la MultipleLocator ? From: Iyer - 2007-05-15 00:48:31 ```Hi I apologize for my late response, I was in the hospital. Thanks for the tip, the ticks are now magically divided by a constant. Here's some input on scaling the input data: Say -- you have 25000 points of data. You want to capture each and every point of data on a plot. Mpl lists the ticks as a function of the number of data points, which is cool. Now comes a situation where in you want to manipulate the ticks to display - say the time, for eg., the 100th data point came in at 1 sec, the 200th came in at 2 sec, and so on - Is scaling the input data the way to go ? -iyer --- John Hunter wrote: > On 4/10/07, Iyer wrote: > > > If only someone could guide me, so that I can > > understand better how to "translate" the ticks > from > > the default "number of sample" ticks to that of > > different ticks - say > > new_ticks=original_ticks/(some_constant).

 [Matplotlib-users] Markers in Matplotlib (examples/annotation_demo.py) From: Iyer - 2007-05-15 01:06:21 Attachments: before_pan.jpg     after_pan.jpg ```It's cool creating annotations, when the pan tool is used , I see that the markers/annotations do not behave in the same way as that of the plot -- i.e., when I pan towards the left or right, the annotations do not disappear with the plot at the boundaries of the subplot. The annotations continue to be displayed. Any solution for this ? I've attached illustrations. -thanks iyer ____________________________________________________________________________________Give spam the boot.

The annotations continue to be displayed. This is part feature, part bug. The feature part is that you don't always want you annotation clipped -- sometimes you explicitly want the annotation outside the axes and not clipped (eg in the polar demo of examples/annotation_demo.py). The bug part is that sometimes you do want it clipped, and this is currently broken. The version you are using is different than the svn version, and thus still broken, but I just committed changes to svn to fix this, so if you want clipping you can enable it with a = ax.annotate(something, ..., clip_on=True) Again, this will only work with svn mpl (and in the next release) Thanks for the report!

Can you write up a little piece of code showing what you are doing now, and explain how you would like the output changed? Just make up some data and plot it, and point out what is wrong about the result. As an example of how to phrase your question, here is how I would write the question I thought you were trying to communicate a few emails ago: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- The following script makes an otherwise good plot, but I want the x-axis to go from 0 to 1, not 0 to 10. How do I do this? x = arange(0,10,0.5) y = sin(x) plot(x,y) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- The best answer to *that* question, which you got from John Hunter, is to change the script to the following: x = arange(0,10,0.5) y = sin(x) dt = 1.0/10 plot(x*dt,y) Since you say that this does not solve your problem, that must not have been the question you intended to ask. Perhaps rephrasing the question using a code example would help make your point clearer. -- Jouni K. Seppänen http://www.iki.fi/jks ```

That almost works -- except I loose the ability for the > user to rotate/zoom using the mouse. I think I'm going to have to switch to using gnuplot for the 3D window. Matplotlib is just too slow. The 3D window takes about 2 seconds to plot, and whan the user rotates the image, it only updates at about 1fps. Gnuplot does the plot pretty much instantaneously and rotates and zooms smoothly, so that's probably going to be the deciding factor... -- Grant Edwards grante Yow! Is it 1974? What's at for SUPPER?
