x and y sticky edge lists.

When performing autoscaling, if a data limit coincides with a value in the corresponding sticky_edges list, then no margin will be added–the view limit “sticks” to the edge. A typical usecase is histograms, where one usually expects no margin on the bottom edge (0) of the histogram.

This attribute cannot be assigned to; however, the x and y lists can be modified in place as needed.

Examples

>>> artist.sticky_edges.x[:] = (xmin, xmax)
>>> artist.sticky_edges.y[:] = (ymin, ymax)
