Functions

bbox_artist(artist, renderer[, props, fill]) This is a debug function to draw a rectangle around the bounding box returned by get_window_extent() of an artist, to test whether the artist is returning the correct bbox.
draw_bbox(bbox, renderer[, color, trans]) This is a debug function to draw a rectangle around the bounding box returned by get_window_extent() of an artist, to test whether the artist is returning the correct bbox.
