# Matplotlib.axes.Axes.set_axis_off() in Python

• Last Updated : 19 Apr, 2020

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.

The Axes.set_axis_off() function in axes module of matplotlib library is used to turn the x- and y-axis off and this affects the axis lines, ticks, ticklabels, grid and axis labels.

Syntax: Axes.set_axis_off(self)

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameters.

Returns:This method does not returns anything.

Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.axes.Axes.set_axis_off() function in matplotlib.axes:

Example 1:

 `# Implementation of matplotlib function``import` `matplotlib.pyplot as plt``import` `numpy as np``   ` `# Time series data``geeksx ``=` `np.array([``24.40``, ``110.25``, ``20.05``, ``                  ``22.00``, ``61.90``, ``7.80``,``                   ``15.00``])`` ` `geeksy ``=` `np.array([``24.40``, ``110.25``, ``20.05``,``                   ``22.00``, ``61.90``, ``7.80``,``                   ``15.00``])``   ` `fig, ax ``=` `plt.subplots()``ax.xcorr(geeksx,  geeksy, maxlags ``=` `6``, ``         ``color ``=``"green"``)`` ` `ax.set_axis_off()`` ` `ax.set_title('matplotlib.axes.Axes.set_axis_off()\``Example')``plt.show()`

Output:

Example 2:
