Source code for matplotlib.legend

The legend module defines the Legend class, which is responsible for
drawing legends associated with axes and/or figures.

.. important::

    It is unlikely that you would ever create a Legend instance
    manually.  Most users would normally create a legend via the
    :meth:`~matplotlib.axes.Axes.legend` function. For more details on legends
    there is also a :doc:`legend guide </tutorials/intermediate/legend_guide>`.

The Legend class can be considered as a container of legend handles and
legend texts. Creation of corresponding legend handles from the plot elements
in the axes or figures (e.g., lines, patches, etc.) are specified by the
handler map, which defines the mapping between the plot elements and the
legend handlers to be used (the default legend handlers are defined in the
:mod:`~matplotlib.legend_handler` module).  Note that not all kinds of
artist are supported by the legend yet by default but it is possible to
extend the legend handler's capabilities to support arbitrary objects. See
the :doc:`legend guide </tutorials/intermediate/legend_guide>` for more

_legend_kw_doc = ''' loc : int or string or pair of floats, default: :rc:`legend.loc` ('best' for \ axes, 'upper right' for figures) The location of the legend. Possible codes are: =============== ============= Location String Location Code =============== ============= 'best' 0 'upper right' 1 'upper left' 2 'lower left' 3 'lower right' 4 'right' 5 'center left' 6 'center right' 7 'lower center' 8 'upper center' 9 'center' 10 =============== ============= Alternatively can be a 2-tuple giving ``x, y`` of the lower-left corner of the legend in axes coordinates (in which case ``bbox_to_anchor`` will be ignored). The 'best' option can be quite slow for plots with large amounts of data. Your plotting speed may benefit from providing a specific location. bbox_to_anchor : `.BboxBase`, 2-tuple, or 4-tuple of floats Box that is used to position the legend in conjunction with *loc*. Defaults to `axes.bbox` (if called as a method to `.Axes.legend`) or `figure.bbox` (if `.Figure.legend`). This argument allows arbitrary placement of the legend. Bbox coordinates are interpreted in the coordinate system given by `bbox_transform`, with the default transform Axes or Figure coordinates, depending on which ``legend`` is called. If a 4-tuple or `.BboxBase` is given, then it specifies the bbox ``(x, y, width, height)`` that the legend is placed in. To put the legend in the best location in the bottom right quadrant of the axes (or figure):: loc='best', bbox_to_anchor=(0.5, 0., 0.5, 0.5) A 2-tuple ``(x, y)`` places the corner of the legend specified by *loc* at x, y. For example, to put the legend's upper right-hand corner in the center of the axes (or figure) the following keywords can be used:: loc='upper right', bbox_to_anchor=(0.5, 0.5) ncol : integer The number of columns that the legend has. Default is 1. prop : None or :class:`matplotlib.font_manager.FontProperties` or dict The font properties of the legend. If None (default), the current :data:`matplotlib.rcParams` will be used. fontsize : int or float or {'xx-small', 'x-small', 'small', 'medium', \ 'large', 'x-large', 'xx-large'} Controls the font size of the legend. If the value is numeric the size will be the absolute font size in points. String values are relative to the current default font size. This argument is only used if `prop` is not specified. numpoints : None or int The number of marker points in the legend when creating a legend entry for a `.Line2D` (line). Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.numpoints`. scatterpoints : None or int The number of marker points in the legend when creating a legend entry for a `.PathCollection` (scatter plot). Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.scatterpoints`. scatteryoffsets : iterable of floats The vertical offset (relative to the font size) for the markers created for a scatter plot legend entry. 0.0 is at the base the legend text, and 1.0 is at the top. To draw all markers at the same height, set to ``[0.5]``. Default is ``[0.375, 0.5, 0.3125]``. markerscale : None or int or float The relative size of legend markers compared with the originally drawn ones. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.markerscale`. markerfirst : bool If *True*, legend marker is placed to the left of the legend label. If *False*, legend marker is placed to the right of the legend label. Default is *True*. frameon : None or bool Control whether the legend should be drawn on a patch (frame). Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.frameon`. fancybox : None or bool Control whether round edges should be enabled around the :class:`~matplotlib.patches.FancyBboxPatch` which makes up the legend's background. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.fancybox`. shadow : None or bool Control whether to draw a shadow behind the legend. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.shadow`. framealpha : None or float Control the alpha transparency of the legend's background. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.framealpha`. If shadow is activated and *framealpha* is ``None``, the default value is ignored. facecolor : None or "inherit" or a color spec Control the legend's background color. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.facecolor`. If ``"inherit"``, it will take :rc:`axes.facecolor`. edgecolor : None or "inherit" or a color spec Control the legend's background patch edge color. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.edgecolor` If ``"inherit"``, it will take :rc:`axes.edgecolor`. mode : {"expand", None} If `mode` is set to ``"expand"`` the legend will be horizontally expanded to fill the axes area (or `bbox_to_anchor` if defines the legend's size). bbox_transform : None or :class:`matplotlib.transforms.Transform` The transform for the bounding box (`bbox_to_anchor`). For a value of ``None`` (default) the Axes' :data:`~matplotlib.axes.Axes.transAxes` transform will be used. title : str or None The legend's title. Default is no title (``None``). title_fontsize: str or None The fontsize of the legend's title. Default is the default fontsize. borderpad : float or None The fractional whitespace inside the legend border. Measured in font-size units. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.borderpad`. labelspacing : float or None The vertical space between the legend entries. Measured in font-size units. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.labelspacing`. handlelength : float or None The length of the legend handles. Measured in font-size units. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.handlelength`. handletextpad : float or None The pad between the legend handle and text. Measured in font-size units. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.handletextpad`. borderaxespad : float or None The pad between the axes and legend border. Measured in font-size units. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.borderaxespad`. columnspacing : float or None The spacing between columns. Measured in font-size units. Default is ``None``, which will take the value from :rc:`legend.columnspacing`. handler_map : dict or None The custom dictionary mapping instances or types to a legend handler. This `handler_map` updates the default handler map found at :func:`matplotlib.legend.Legend.get_legend_handler_map`. ''' docstring.interpd.update(_legend_kw_doc=_legend_kw_doc)
