matplotlib.axes.Axes.set_position#

Axes.set_position(pos, which='both')[source]#

Set the Axes position.

Axes have two position attributes. The 'original' position is the position allocated for the Axes. The 'active' position is the position the Axes is actually drawn at. These positions are usually the same unless a fixed aspect is set to the Axes. See Axes.set_aspect for details.

Parameters:
pos[left, bottom, width, height] or Bbox

The new position of the Axes in Figure coordinates.

which{'both', 'active', 'original'}, default: 'both'

Determines which position variables to change.
