I want to use matplotlib to plot in realtime the position of a microscope
stage, read out over a serial connection. Essentially I reached my goal,
starting from the example simple_idle_wx.py
Now I have two questions
1) I would like to stay independent of the backend, therefore I would prefer
a approach like in idle_and_timeout
However, with my default backend WXAgg I do not continuously idle events,
but only once e.g. after each mouse movement. Can someone give me more
information about the intended behaviour, current status and support of idle
2) I want to limit the lifetime of my connection object, that takes care of
the communication with the microscope stage, so that the connection is
closed if I close the matplotlib figure. I could not find a 'close_event'.
To achieve this I could embed a matplotlib figure into a wx frame, but this
is somewhat tediuos. For the wxagg backend, does somebody know a more simple
solution? Do others also feel the need to add a close_event? In case, I
could try to take care of the wx backend.
