Matplotlib is a library in Python and it is numerical – mathematical extension for NumPy library. It is an amazing visualization library in Python for 2D plots of arrays and used for working with the broader SciPy stack.

Matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_label_text() Function

The Axis.get_label_text() function in axis module of matplotlib library is used to get the text of the label.
 

Syntax: Axis.get_label_text(self) 

Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameter. 
 

Return value: This method returns the text of the label. 



Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_label_text() function in matplotlib.axis:

Example 1:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
from matplotlib.axis import Axis
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
   
fig, ax2 = plt.subplots(sharex = True)
fig.subplots_adjust(left=0.2, wspace=0.6)
box = dict(facecolor='green', pad=5, alpha=0.2)
   
ax2.plot(20*np.random.rand(10))
ax2.xaxis.set_label_text('X - Label', bbox=box)
ax2.set_xlim(0, 10)
print("Text of the Label :",ax2.xaxis.get_label_text())
    
fig.suptitle("Matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_label_text()\
Function Example", fontsize = 12, fontweight ='bold'
  
plt.show()

Output: 

 

Text of the Label : X - Label

Example 2:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
from matplotlib.axis import Axis
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
    
fig, (ax1, ax2) = plt.subplots(2, 1, sharex = True)
fig.subplots_adjust(left=0.2, wspace=0.6)
box = dict(facecolor='green', pad=5, alpha=0.2)
    
np.random.seed(19680801)
ax1.plot(2*np.random.rand(10))
ax1.set_title('Label is not aligned')
ax1.yaxis.set_label_text('Default', bbox=box)
ax1.set_ylim(0, 20)
print("Text of Label in Axes 1 :",ax1.yaxis.get_label_text())
    
ax2.set_title('\nLabel is aligned')
ax2.plot(20*np.random.rand(10))
ax2.yaxis.set_label_text('Adjusted', bbox=box)
ax2.yaxis.set_label_position('right')
ax2.set_ylim(0, 20)
print("Text of Label in Axes 2 :",ax2.yaxis.get_label_text())
    
fig.suptitle("Matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_label_text()\
Function Example", fontsize = 12, fontweight ='bold'
  
plt.show()

Output: 
 

 

Text of Label in Axes 1 : Default
Text of Label in Axes 2 : Adjusted
