Inheritance diagram of matplotlib.patches

Patches are Artists with a face color and an edge color.

Classes

Annulus(xy, r, width[, angle])

An elliptical annulus.

Arc(xy, width, height[, angle, theta1, theta2])

An elliptical arc, i.e. a segment of an ellipse.

Arrow(x, y, dx, dy[, width])

An arrow patch.

ArrowStyle(stylename, **kwargs)

ArrowStyle is a container class which defines several arrowstyle classes, which is used to create an arrow path along a given path.

BoxStyle(stylename, **kwargs)

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

Circle(xy[, radius])

A circle patch.

CirclePolygon(xy[, radius, resolution])

A polygon-approximation of a circle patch.

ConnectionPatch(xyA, xyB, coordsA[, ...])

A patch that connects two points (possibly in different axes).

ConnectionStyle(stylename, **kwargs)

ConnectionStyle is a container class which defines several connectionstyle classes, which is used to create a path between two points.

Ellipse(xy, width, height[, angle])

A scale-free ellipse.

FancyArrow(x, y, dx, dy[, width, ...])

Like Arrow, but lets you set head width and head height independently.

FancyArrowPatch([posA, posB, path, ...])

A fancy arrow patch.

FancyBboxPatch(xy, width, height[, ...])

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

Patch([edgecolor, facecolor, color, ...])

A patch is a 2D artist with a face color and an edge color.

PathPatch(path, **kwargs)

A general polycurve path patch.

StepPatch(values, edges, *[, orientation, ...])

A path patch describing a stepwise constant function.

Polygon(xy[, closed])

A general polygon patch.

Rectangle(xy, width, height[, angle])

A rectangle defined via an anchor point xy and its width and height.

RegularPolygon(xy, numVertices[, radius, ...])

A regular polygon patch.

Shadow(patch, ox, oy, **kwargs)

Create a shadow of the given patch.

Wedge(center, r, theta1, theta2[, width])

Wedge shaped patch.

Functions

bbox_artist(artist, renderer[, props, fill])

A debug function to draw a rectangle around the bounding box returned by an artist's Artist.get_window_extent to test whether the artist is returning the correct bbox.

draw_bbox(bbox, renderer[, color, trans])

A debug function to draw a rectangle around the bounding box returned by an artist's Artist.get_window_extent to test whether the artist is returning the correct bbox.
