matplotlib.markers.MarkerStyle

class matplotlib.markers.MarkerStyle(marker, fillstyle=None)[source]

Bases: object

A class representing marker types.

Instances are immutable. If you need to change anything, create a new instance.

Attributes
markerslist

All known markers.

filled_markerslist

All known filled markers. This is a subset of markers.

fillstyleslist

The supported fillstyles.

Parameters
markerstr, array-like, Path, MarkerStyle, or None
  • Another instance of MarkerStyle copies the details of that marker.

  • None means no marker. This is the deprecated default.

  • For other possible marker values, see the module docstring matplotlib.markers.

fillstylestr, default: rcParams["markers.fillstyle"] (default: 'full')

One of 'full', 'left', 'right', 'bottom', 'top', 'none'.

transformtransforms.Transform, default: None

Transform that will be combined with the native transform of the marker.

capstyleCapStyle, default: None

Cap style that will override the default cap style of the marker.

joinstyleJoinStyle, default: None

Join style that will override the default join style of the marker.

filled_markers = ('o', 'v', '^', '<', '>', '8', 's', 'p', '*', 'h', 'H', 'D', 'd', 'P', 'X')
fillstyles = ('full', 'left', 'right', 'bottom', 'top', 'none')
get_alt_path()[source]

Return a Path for the alternate part of the marker.

For unfilled markers, this is None; for filled markers, this is the area to be drawn with markerfacecoloralt.

get_alt_transform()[source]

Return the transform to be applied to the Path from MarkerStyle.get_alt_path().

get_capstyle()[source]
get_fillstyle()[source]
get_joinstyle()[source]
get_marker()[source]
get_path()[source]

Return a Path for the primary part of the marker.

For unfilled markers this is the whole marker, for filled markers, this is the area to be drawn with markerfacecolor.

get_snap_threshold()[source]
get_transform()[source]

Return the transform to be applied to the Path from MarkerStyle.get_path().

get_user_transform()[source]

Return user supplied part of marker transform.

rotated(*, deg=None, rad=None)[source]

Return a new version of this marker rotated by specified angle.

Parameters
degfloat, default: None

Rotation angle in degrees.

radfloat, default: None

Rotation angle in radians.

.. note:: You must specify exactly one of deg or rad.
scaled(sx, sy=None)[source]

Return new marker scaled by specified scale factors.

If sy is None, the same scale is applied in both the x- and y-directions.

Parameters
sxfloat

X-direction scaling factor.

syfloat, default: None

Y-direction scaling factor.

set_fillstyle(fillstyle)[source]

[Deprecated]

Notes

Deprecated since version 3.4:

set_marker(marker)[source]

[Deprecated]

Notes

Deprecated since version 3.4:

transformed(transform: matplotlib.transforms.Affine2D)[source]

Return a new version of this marker with the transform applied.

Parameters
transformAffine2D, default: None

Transform will be combined with current user supplied transform.
