matplotlib.patches.BoxStyle

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

Bases: matplotlib.patches._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.

Class

Name

Attrs

Square

square

pad=0.3

Circle

circle

pad=0.3

LArrow

larrow

pad=0.3

RArrow

rarrow

pad=0.3

DArrow

darrow

pad=0.3

Round

round

pad=0.3, rounding_size=None

Round4

round4

pad=0.3, rounding_size=None

Sawtooth

sawtooth

pad=0.3, tooth_size=None

Roundtooth

roundtooth

pad=0.3, tooth_size=None

An instance of any boxstyle class is an callable object, whose call signature is:

__call__(self, x0, y0, width, height, mutation_size)

and returns a Path instance. x0, y0, width and height specify the location and size of the box to be drawn. mutation_scale determines the overall size of the mutation (by which I mean the transformation of the rectangle to the fancy box).

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

class Circle(pad=0.3)[source]

Bases: matplotlib.patches.BoxStyle._Base
