Matplotlib.axes.Axes.properties() in Python

Matplotlib is a library in Python and it is numerical – mathematical extension for NumPy library. The Axes Class contains most of the figure elements: Axis, Tick, Line2D, Text, Polygon, etc., and sets the coordinate system. And the instances of Axes supports callbacks through a callbacks attribute.

matplotlib.axes.Axes.properties() Function

The Axes.properties() function in axes module of matplotlib library is used to get the dictionary of all the properties of the artist..

Syntax: Axes.properties(self)

Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameters.

Returns: This method return dictionary of all the properties of the artist.
