Greetings. I've been using matplotlib for a few weeks now in ipython on
Windows XP and with the WXAgg backend. I'm impressed by the breadth of
features and the versatility of the package. Thank you for producing such a
useful and well-made tool.
I noticed that the figure function was not exactly honoring the figsize
argument, as can be seen with
f = figure(figsize=(6, 4)); f.get_size_inches()
which returns approximately (5.9, 3.325) when rcParams['figure.dpi'] = 80
and (5.917, 3.4375) when rcParams['figure.dpi'] = 96. It seems that the
window frame, not the figure, takes on the given size, with some height
adjustment related to the status bar or toolbar.
A subsequent call to f.set_size_inches will correctly set the stored size of
the figure but not its displayed size. The set_size_inches method has a
mechanism for forwarding the new size to the window, but, according to the
docstring, that mechanism works only in the GTK backend.
I believe I have (1) a fix that gives new figures the size specified by
figsize, and (2) an implementation of the forward mechanism for
set_size_inches. I believe these apply to both WXAgg and WX. I'd like to
contribute them to the package; how do I do so?
