Custom Figure ClassΒΆ

You can pass a custom Figure constructor to figure if you want to derive from the default Figure. This simple example creates a figure with a figure title.

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from matplotlib.figure import Figure

class MyFigure(Figure):
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        custom kwarg figtitle is a figure title
        figtitle = kwargs.pop('figtitle', 'hi mom')
        Figure.__init__(self, *args, **kwargs)
        self.text(0.5, 0.95, figtitle, ha='center')

fig = plt.figure(FigureClass=MyFigure, figtitle='my title')
ax = fig.subplots()
ax.plot([1, 2, 3])
