I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but it don't work for me.
I have to open different sets of data, plot it, select an initial point, make some calculations and save all the data.
Each plot have a diferente initial point, so I thought of do this with a for sentences, opening each plot, doing all and so on.
But I open the first one, and then it plots the second one, but don't let me select the original point, it catches the previos one. And the same for the rest.
And I don't know why it doesn't work.

Here you have all the program:

Hello darkside,

I'm a little confused that you are sending the email directly to me ...
and I'm not sure I really understand your problem, but I set up an example
that hopefully satify your needs and shows that it works in principle :
import pylab

def click(event):
    global x           # allow to change global variable
    if event.button == 1:
        if event.inaxes:
            x = event.xdata             # change global variable
            print " x - intern = ", x

xlist = []            # list for x values
global x
for i in xrange(8):
    pylab.figure ()
    cid = pylab.connect('button_press_event', click)
    print " x - extern = ", x

pylab.plot(xlist, 'b+', ms=8, mew=4)     # plot ensemble of x values

If this example is not sufficient for you, please set up a little example of
your problem, which can be executed from here, too.
This you may send to mpl mailing-list.

I have already tried this example and it doesn't  work for me. It  catches  the same x for all the plots.

Thank you for you kind help.

P.D. I send the previous message to you because I clicked the reply button and I didn't see that it was only you, sorry.
