matplotlib.pyplot.broken_barh(xranges, yrange, *, data=None, **kwargs)[source]

Plot a horizontal sequence of rectangles.

A rectangle is drawn for each element of xranges. All rectangles have the same vertical position and size defined by yrange.

This is a convenience function for instantiating a BrokenBarHCollection, adding it to the axes and autoscaling the view.

xrangessequence of tuples (xmin, xwidth)

The x-positions and extends of the rectangles. For each tuple (xmin, xwidth) a rectangle is drawn from xmin to xmin + xwidth.

yrange(ymin, yheight)

The y-position and extend for all the rectangles.

Other Parameters:
**kwargsBrokenBarHCollection properties

Each kwarg can be either a single argument applying to all rectangles, e.g.:


or a sequence of arguments over which is cycled, e.g.:

facecolors=('black', 'blue')

would create interleaving black and blue rectangles.

In addition to the above described arguments, this function can take a data keyword argument. If such a data argument is given, every other argument can also be string s, which is interpreted as data[s] (unless this raises an exception).

Objects passed as data must support item access (data[s]) and membership test (s in data).
