class mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1.anchored_artists.AnchoredAuxTransformBox(transform, loc, pad=0.4, borderpad=0.5, prop=None, frameon=True, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: matplotlib.offsetbox.AnchoredOffsetbox

An anchored container with transformed coordinates.

Artists added to the drawing_area are scaled according to the coordinates of the transformation used. The dimensions of this artist will scale to contain the artists added.


The transformation object for the coordinate system in use, i.e., matplotlib.axes.Axes.transData.


Location of this artist. Valid location codes are:

'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
padint or float, optional

Padding around the child objects, in fraction of the font size. Defaults to 0.4.

borderpadint or float, optional

Border padding, in fraction of the font size. Defaults to 0.5.

propmatplotlib.font_manager.FontProperties, optional

Font property used as a reference for paddings.

frameonbool, optional

If True, draw a box around this artists. Defaults to True.


Keyworded arguments to pass to matplotlib.offsetbox.AnchoredOffsetbox.


To display an ellipse in the upper left, with a width of 0.1 and height of 0.4 in data coordinates:

>>> box = AnchoredAuxTransformBox(ax.transData, loc='upper left')
>>> el = Ellipse((0, 0), width=0.1, height=0.4, angle=30)
>>> box.drawing_area.add_artist(el)
>>> ax.add_artist(box)

A container for artists to display.
