mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1.axes_size.from_any(size, fraction_ref=None)[source]ΒΆ

Creates Fixed unit when the first argument is a float, or a Fraction unit if that is a string that ends with %. The second argument is only meaningful when Fraction unit is created.:

>>> a = Size.from_any(1.2) # => Size.Fixed(1.2)
>>> Size.from_any("50%", a) # => Size.Fraction(0.5, a)
