__module__ = 'matplotlib.patches'
__str__()[source]

Return str(self).

property angle

Return the angle of the ellipse.

property center

Return the center of the ellipse.

get_angle()[source]

Return the angle of the ellipse.

get_center()[source]

Return the center of the ellipse.

get_height()[source]

Return the height of the ellipse.

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 the ellipse.

get_width()[source]

Return the width of the ellipse.

property height

Return the height of the ellipse.

set_angle(angle)[source]

Set the angle of the ellipse.

Parameters:
anglefloat
set_center(xy)[source]

Set the center of the ellipse.

Parameters:
xy(float, float)
set_height(height)[source]

Set the height of the ellipse.

Parameters:
heightfloat
set_width(width)[source]

Set the width of the ellipse.

Parameters:
widthfloat
property width

Return the width of the ellipse.
