Matplotlib.artist.Artist.get_clip_box() in Python
  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

Matplotlib is a library in Python and it is numerical – mathematical extension for NumPy library. The Artist class contains Abstract base class for objects that render into a FigureCanvas. All visible elements in a figure are subclasses of Artist.

matplotlib.artist.Artist.get_clip_box() method

The get_clip_box() method in artist module of matplotlib library is used to get the clipbox.

Syntax: Artist.get_clip_box(self)

Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameter.

Returns: This method return the the animated state.



Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.artist.Artist.get_clip_box() function in matplotlib:

Example 1:




# Implementation of matplotlib function
from matplotlib.artist import Artist
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
import numpy as np 
from matplotlib.patches import Ellipse 
     
  
delta = 45.0
     
angles = np.arange(0, 360 + delta, delta) 
ells = [Ellipse((2, 2), 5, 2, a) for a in angles] 
     
fig, ax = plt.subplots() 
    
print("Value Return by get_clip_box()"
for e in ells: 
    Artist.set_clip_box(e, ax.bbox) 
    print(Artist.get_clip_box(e)) 
    e.set_alpha(0.1
    ax.add_artist(e) 
     
plt.xlim(-1, 5
plt.ylim(-1, 5
          
fig.suptitle('matplotlib.artist.Artist.get_clip_box() \
function Example', fontweight ="bold"
  
plt.show()

Output:

NUM = 200
       
ells = [Ellipse(xy = np.random.rand(2) * 10

        for i in range(NUM)] 
       
fig, ax = plt.subplots(subplot_kw ={'aspect': 'equal'}) 
    
print("Value Return by get_clip_box()"
x = 0
    
for e in ells:
