Axes.fill(*args, data=None, **kwargs)[source]#

Plot filled polygons.

*argssequence of x, y, [color]

Each polygon is defined by the lists of x and y positions of its nodes, optionally followed by a color specifier. See matplotlib.colors for supported color specifiers. The standard color cycle is used for polygons without a color specifier.

You can plot multiple polygons by providing multiple x, y, [color] groups.

For example, each of the following is legal:

ax.fill(x, y)                    # a polygon with default color
ax.fill(x, y, "b")               # a blue polygon
ax.fill(x, y, x2, y2)            # two polygons
ax.fill(x, y, "b", x2, y2, "r")  # a blue and a red polygon
dataindexable object, optional

An object with labelled data. If given, provide the label names to plot in x and y, e.g.:

ax.fill("time", "signal",
        data={"time": [0, 1, 2], "signal": [0, 1, 0]})

Use fill_between() if you would like to fill the region between two curves.
