I am plotting using Matplotlib in Python. I want create plot with grid, and here is an example from a plotting tutorial. In my plot range if the y axis is from 0 to 14 and if I use
pylab.grid(True) then it makes a grid with the size of square of two, but I want the size to be 1. How can I force it?
ax.grid(True, which='both') to position your grid lines on both major and minor ticks, as suggested here.
EDIT: Or just set your ticks manually, like this:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt fig = plt.figure() ax = fig.add_subplot(111) ax.plot([1,2,3,14],'ro-') # set your ticks manually ax.xaxis.set_ticks([1.,2.,3.,10.]) ax.grid(True) plt.show()
If you want to follow along with the example you cited:
>>> import numpy >>> import pylab >>> t = numpy.arange(0.0, 1.0+0.1, 0.01) >>> s = numpy.cos(2*2*numpy.pi*t) >>> pylab.plot(t,s) >>> pylab.grid(True) >>> pylab.xticks([i/10.0 for i in range(0,12)]) >>> pylab.show()
