Source code for matplotlib.blocking_input

This provides several classes used for blocking interaction with figure

    Creates a callable object to retrieve events in a blocking way for
    interactive sessions.  Base class of the other classes listed here.

    Creates a callable object to retrieve key or mouse clicks in a blocking
    way for interactive sessions.  Used by `waitforbuttonpress`.

    Creates a callable object to retrieve mouse clicks in a blocking way for
    interactive sessions.  Used by `ginput`.

    Creates a callable object to retrieve mouse clicks in a blocking way that
    will then be used to place labels on a `ContourSet`.  Used by `clabel`.
