Hi. It's me again, asking about dates again. is there any easy way to a collection using dates on the X axes? I've taken the collection example from the website and adopted it so that there is a use_dates flag. Set it to False and spirals demo appears. Set it to True and I get this error: Traceback (most recent call last): File "mpl_collection2.py", line 51, in <module> ax.add_collection(col, autolim=True) File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/ python2.6/sitepackages/matplotlib/axes.py", line 1312, in add_collection self.update_datalim(collection.get_datalim(self.transData)) File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/ python2.6/sitepackages/matplotlib/collections.py", line 144, in get_datalim offsets = transOffset.transform_non_affine(offsets) File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/ python2.6/sitepackages/matplotlib/transforms.py", line 1914, in transform_non_affine self._a.transform(points)) File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/ python2.6/sitepackages/matplotlib/transforms.py", line 1408, in transform return affine_transform(points, mtx) ValueError: Invalid vertices array.

Set it to True and I get this error: Yes, it looks like a bug in the handling of units in the Collection base class; unit conversion is done at drawing time, but needs either to be done earlier, or to be done independently in the get_datalim method. Maybe one of the unitssupport experts will pick this up and fix it. I can't do more now.

Simson, The scatter function or Axes method is designed for exactly this, but units support was broken in two places. I have fixed it in 6781 on the 98.5 maintenance branch, merged to the trunk in 6782. So, please update to one of these and try scatter(). (Watch out for the odd definition of the "s" kwarg for size: area in points squared.) Eric > > Thanks. >

You could try ftp://currents.soest.hawaii.edu/pub/outgoing/matplotlib0.98.6svn.tar.gz which I made from my svn trunk checkout using "python setup.py sdist". No guarantees. It is huge; it must have a lot of files that are not in the standard *.tar.gz. I won't leave it there for more than a day or two, so if you want to try it, grab it now. We would like to have buildbots making and posting daily svn packages, but we aren't there yet.
