Matplotlib.axis.Tick.findobj() function in Python

  • Last Updated : 08 Jun, 2020

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.Tick.findobj() Function

The Tick.findobj() function in axis module of matplotlib library is used to find artist objects. 

Syntax: Tick.findobj(self, match=None, include_self=True) 
 

Parameters: This method accepts the following parameters. 

  • match : This parameter is the filter criterion for the matches. It default value is None.
  • include_self : This parameter include self in the list to be checked for a match.

Return value: This method return the artists(list of Artist). 



Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.axis.Tick.findobj() function in matplotlib.axis:
 

Example 1:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function
from matplotlib.axis import Tick
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt  
from matplotlib.lines import Line2D  
import numpy as np  
from numpy.random import rand  
        
       
fig, ax2 = plt.subplots()  
        
ax2.bar(range(10), rand(10), picker = True)  
     
print("Value return : \n",  
      *list(Tick.findobj(ax2)), sep ="\n")
   
fig.suptitle("""matplotlib.axis.Tick.findobj()
function Example\n""", fontweight ="bold")  
     
plt.show()

Output: 
 

 

Value return : 

Rectangle(xy=(-0.4, 0), width=0.8, height=0.787316, angle=0)
Rectangle(xy=(0.6, 0), width=0.8, height=0.901399, angle=0)
Rectangle(xy=(1.6, 0), width=0.8, height=0.783699, angle=0)
Rectangle(xy=(2.6, 0), width=0.8, height=0.516764, angle=0)
Rectangle(xy=(3.6, 0), width=0.8, height=0.284635, angle=0)
Rectangle(xy=(4.6, 0), width=0.8, height=0.228809, angle=0)
Rectangle(xy=(5.6, 0), width=0.8, height=0.347976, angle=0)
Rectangle(xy=(6.6, 0), width=0.8, height=0.311647, angle=0)
Rectangle(xy=(7.6, 0), width=0.8, height=0.0261189, angle=0)
