I just started using Matplotlib and am trying to change the color of the face color of a plot...
if I create the figure like this:
plt.figure(num=None, figsize=(5, 10), dpi=80, facecolor='y', edgecolor='k')
only the boarder of the figure changes to yellow... What I would like is the boarder to be white and the plot to be yellow..
A snip from my current code:
plt.figure(num=None, figsize=(5, 10), dpi=80, facecolor='y', edgecolor='k') ax = plt.gca() ax.plot(x, y, color = 'g')
Is this what you want?
#!/usr/bin/env python """ matplotlib gives you 4 ways to specify colors, 1) as a single letter string, ala MATLAB 2) as an html style hex string or html color name 3) as an R,G,B tuple, where R,G,B, range from 0-1 4) as a string representing a floating point number from 0 to 1, corresponding to shades of gray.
