class matplotlib.patches.BoxStyle(stylename, **kwargs)[source]#

Bases: _Style

BoxStyle is a container class which defines several boxstyle classes, which are used for FancyBboxPatch.

A style object can be created as:

BoxStyle.Round(pad=0.2)

or:

BoxStyle("Round", pad=0.2)

or:

BoxStyle("Round, pad=0.2")

The following boxstyle classes are defined.

An instance of a boxstyle class is a callable object, with the signature

__call__(self, x0, y0, width, height, mutation_size) -> Path

x0, y0, width and height specify the location and size of the box to be drawn; mutation_size scales the outline properties such as padding.

Return the instance of the subclass with the given style name.
