matplotlib.axis.XAxis.set_view_interval

XAxis.set_view_interval(vmin, vmax, ignore=False)[source]

If ignore is False, the order of vmin, vmax does not matter; the original axis orientation will be preserved. In addition, the view limits can be expanded, but will not be reduced. This method is for mpl internal use; for normal use, see set_xlim().
