user_interfaces example code: pylab_with_gtk.pyΒΆ

[source code]

An example of how to use pylab to manage your figure windows, but
modify the GUI by accessing the underlying gtk widgets
from __future__ import print_function
import matplotlib
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

ax = plt.subplot(111)
plt.plot([1,2,3], 'ro-', label='easy as 1 2 3')
plt.plot([1,4,9], 'gs--', label='easy as 1 2 3 squared')

manager = plt.get_current_fig_manager()
# you can also access the window or vbox attributes this way
toolbar = manager.toolbar

# now let's add a button to the toolbar
import gtk
next = 8; #where to insert this in the mpl toolbar
button = gtk.Button('Click me')

def clicked(button):
    print('hi mom')
button.connect('clicked', clicked)

toolitem = gtk.ToolItem()
    'Click me for fun and profit')

toolbar.insert(toolitem, next); next +=1

# now let's add a widget to the vbox
label = gtk.Label()
label.set_markup('Drag mouse over axes for position')
vbox = manager.vbox
vbox.pack_start(label, False, False)
vbox.reorder_child(manager.toolbar, -1)

def update(event):
    if event.xdata is None:
        label.set_markup('Drag mouse over axes for position')
        label.set_markup('<span color="#ef0000">x,y=(%f, %f)</span>'%(event.xdata, event.ydata))

plt.connect('motion_notify_event', update)
