matplotlib.patches.FancyBboxPatch

class matplotlib.patches.FancyBboxPatch(xy, width, height, boxstyle='round', bbox_transmuter=<deprecated parameter>, mutation_scale=1, mutation_aspect=1, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: matplotlib.patches.Patch

A fancy box around a rectangle with lower left at xy = (x, y) with specified width and height.

FancyBboxPatch is similar to Rectangle, but it draws a fancy box around the rectangle. The transformation of the rectangle box to the fancy box is delegated to the style classes defined in BoxStyle.

Parameters
xyfloat, float

The lower left corner of the box.

widthfloat

The width of the box.

heightfloat

The height of the box.

boxstylestr or matplotlib.patches.BoxStyle

The style of the fancy box. This can either be a BoxStyle instance or a string of the style name and optionally comma seprarated attributes (e.g. "Round, pad=0.2"). This string is passed to BoxStyle to construct a BoxStyle object. See there for a full documentation.

The following box styles are available:

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

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

mutation_scalefloat, default: 1

Scaling factor applied to the attributes of the box style (e.g. pad or rounding_size).

mutation_aspectfloat, default: 1

The height of the rectangle will be squeezed by this value before the mutation and the mutated box will be stretched by the inverse of it. For example, this allows different horizontal and vertical padding.

set_bounds(*args)[source]

Set the bounds of the rectangle.

Call signatures:

set_bounds(left, bottom, width, height)
set_bounds((left, bottom, width, height))
Parameters
left, bottomfloat

The coordinates of the bottom left corner of the rectangle.

width, heightfloat

The width/height of the rectangle.

set_boxstyle(boxstyle=None, **kwargs)[source]

Set the box style.

Most box styles can be further configured using attributes. Attributes from the previous box style are not reused.

Without argument (or with boxstyle=None), the available box styles are returned as a human-readable string.

Parameters
boxstylestr or matplotlib.patches.BoxStyle
