class mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1.inset_locator.BboxConnector(bbox1, bbox2, loc1, loc2=None, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: matplotlib.patches.Patch

Connect two bboxes with a straight line.

Parameters:
bbox1, bbox2 : matplotlib.transforms.Bbox

Bounding boxes to connect.

loc1 : {1, 2, 3, 4}

Corner of bbox1 to draw the line. Valid values are:

'upper right'  : 1,
'upper left'   : 2,
'lower left'   : 3,
'lower right'  : 4
loc2 : {1, 2, 3, 4}, optional

Corner of bbox2 to draw the line. If None, defaults to loc1. Valid values are:

'upper right'  : 1,
'upper left'   : 2,
'lower left'   : 3,
'lower right'  : 4
**kwargs

Patch properties for the line drawn. Valid arguments include:

static connect_bbox(bbox1, bbox2, loc1, loc2=None)[source]

Helper function to obtain a Path from one bbox to another.

Parameters:
bbox1, bbox2 : matplotlib.transforms.Bbox

Bounding boxes to connect.

loc1 : {1, 2, 3, 4}

Corner of bbox1 to use. Valid values are:

'upper right'  : 1,
'upper left'   : 2,
'lower left'   : 3,
'lower right'  : 4
loc2 : {1, 2, 3, 4}, optional

Corner of bbox2 to use. If None, defaults to loc1. Valid values are:

'upper right'  : 1,
'upper left'   : 2,
'lower left'   : 3,
'lower right'  : 4
Returns:
path : matplotlib.path.Path

A line segment from the loc1 corner of bbox1 to the loc2 corner of bbox2.

static get_bbox_edge_pos(bbox, loc)[source]

Helper function to obtain the location of a corner of a bbox

Parameters:
bbox : matplotlib.transforms.Bbox
loc : {1, 2, 3, 4}

Corner of bbox. Valid values are:

'upper right'  : 1,
