matplotlib.pyplot.title#

matplotlib.pyplot.title(label, fontdict=None, loc=None, pad=None, *, y=None, **kwargs)[source]#

Set a title for the Axes.

Set one of the three available Axes titles. The available titles are positioned above the Axes in the center, flush with the left edge, and flush with the right edge.

Parameters:
labelstr

Text to use for the title

fontdictdict

A dictionary controlling the appearance of the title text, the default fontdict is:

{'fontsize': rcParams['axes.titlesize'],
 'fontweight': rcParams['axes.titleweight'],
 'color': rcParams['axes.titlecolor'],
 'verticalalignment': 'baseline',
 'horizontalalignment': loc}
loc{'center', 'left', 'right'}, default: rcParams["axes.titlelocation"] (default: 'center')

Which title to set.

yfloat, default: rcParams["axes.titley"] (default: None)

Vertical Axes location for the title (1.0 is the top). If None (the default) and rcParams["axes.titley"] (default: None) is also None, y is determined automatically to avoid decorators on the Axes.

padfloat, default: rcParams["axes.titlepad"] (default: 6.0)

The offset of the title from the top of the Axes, in points.

Returns:
Text

The matplotlib text instance representing the title

Other Parameters:
**kwargsText properties

Other keyword arguments are text properties, see Text for a list of valid text properties.
