I'm making a set of plots (a strip chart) stacked on top of each other,

So far it appears that to get the X axis of each Subplot to match I have
to set its properties independently.

Is there some way to tie them all together so that a user can set the
properties of one and have it propagate? I'm particularly concerned
about tick marks and the X grid lines; I only want to show tick labels
on the bottom-most Subplot.

I suppose one possibility is to create some kind of object on which I
can call Subplot.xaxis methods and have it apply those changes to all
the Subplots. Has anyone done this?

Russel, maybe this example might help?


There are also some more advanced subplot layout methods available called axis_grid1 in the mpl_toolkits.


I hope this helps!
