matplotlib.patches.Arrow

class matplotlib.patches.Arrow(x, y, dx, dy, width=1.0, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: matplotlib.patches.Patch

An arrow patch.

Draws an arrow from (x, y) to (x + dx, y + dy). The width of the arrow is scaled by width.

Parameters
xfloat

x coordinate of the arrow tail.

yfloat

y coordinate of the arrow tail.

dxfloat

Arrow length in the x direction.

dyfloat

Arrow length in the y direction.

widthfloat, default: 1

Scale factor for the width of the arrow. With a default value of 1, the tail width is 0.2 and head width is 0.6.

**kwargs

Keyword arguments control the Patch properties:

FancyArrow

Patch that allows independent control of the head and tail properties.

get_patch_transform()[source]

Return the Transform instance mapping patch coordinates to data coordinates.

For example, one may define a patch of a circle which represents a radius of 5 by providing coordinates for a unit circle, and a transform which scales the coordinates (the patch coordinate) by 5.

get_path()[source]

Return the path of this patch.
