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.update() Function

The Axis.update() function in axis module of matplotlib library is used to update this artist’s properties from the dictionary props. 
 

Syntax: Axis.update(self, props) 
 

Parameters: This method accepts the following parameters. 

  • props: This parameter is the dictionary of the properties.

Return value: This method does not return any value. 

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

Example 1:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function
from matplotlib.axis import Axis
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt  
import numpy as np  
    
            
np.random.seed(10**7)  
geeks = np.random.randn(100)  
       
fig, ax = plt.subplots()  
ax.acorr(geeks, usevlines = True,  
         normed = True,  
         maxlags = 80, lw = 3)  
      
ax.grid(True)  
      
prop = {'xticks': np.array([-10., -5.
                            0., 5., 10.]),  
        'yticks': np.array([-0.20.2,  
                            0.6, 1., 1.4]),  
        'ylabel': None, 'xlabel': None}  
      
Axis.update(ax, prop)
  
plt.title('matplotlib.axis.Axis.update() \
function Example', fontweight ="bold")  
    
plt.show() 

Output: 
 

Example 2:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function
from matplotlib.axis import Axis
import numpy as np   
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt   
      
      
xx = np.random.rand(16, 30)   
         
fig, ax = plt.subplots()   
         
m = ax.pcolor(xx)   
m.set_zorder(-20)  
prop = {'autoscalex_on': False
      
Axis.update(ax, prop)
  
plt.title('matplotlib.axis.Axis.update() \
function Example', fontweight ="bold")  
    
plt.show() 

Output:
