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

  • Last Updated : 10 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.set_gid() Function

The Tick.set_gid() function in axis module of matplotlib library is used to set the (group) id for the artist. 
 

Syntax: Tick.set_gid(self, gid) 
 

Parameters: This method accepts the following parameters. 

  • gid: This parameter is the string given as gid.

Return value: This method does not return any value. 

Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.axis.Tick.set_gid() function in matplotlib.axis:
Example 1:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function
from matplotlib.axis import Tick
import numpy as np 
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
     
     
y, x = np.mgrid[:5, 1:6
poly_coords =
    (0.25, 2.75), (3.25, 2.75), 
    (2.25, 0.75), (0.25, 0.75
     
fig, ax = plt.subplots() 
     
cells = ax.plot(x, y, x - y, color='red'
ax.add_patch( 
    plt.Polygon(poly_coords, 
                color='lightblue'
                alpha=0.5
     
ax.margins(x=0.1, y=0.05
ax.set_aspect('equal'
     
for i, t in enumerate(ax.patches): 
    Tick.set_gid(t, 'patch_% d' % i) 
  
fig.suptitle('matplotlib.axis.Tick.set_gid() \
function Example', fontweight ="bold")  
     
plt.show() 

Output: 

Example 2:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function
from matplotlib.axis import Tick
import numpy as np  
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt  
       
        
fig, ax = plt.subplots()  
       
circle = plt.Circle((0, 0), 5, fc ='lightgreen')  
rect = plt.Rectangle((-5, 10), 10, 5, fc ='red')  
       
ax.add_patch(circle)  
ax.add_patch(rect)  
       
circle_tip = ax.annotate('This is a green circle.',  
        xy =(0, 0),xytext =(30, -30), ha ='left',
        textcoords ='offset points',color ='w',
        bbox = dict(boxstyle ='round, pad =.5',   
            fc =(.1, .1, .1, .92), ec =(1., 1., 1.),
            lw = 1, zorder = 1))  
       
rect_tip = ax.annotate('This is a red rectangle.',  
        xy =(-5, 10), xytext =(30, 40),color ='w'
        textcoords ='offset points', ha ='left',  
        bbox = dict(boxstyle ='round, pad =.5',  
            fc =(.1, .1, .1, .92), ec =(1., 1., 1.),
            lw = 1, zorder = 1))  
       
for i, t in enumerate(ax.patches):  
    Tick.set_gid(t, 'patch_% d'% i)  
       
for i, t in enumerate(ax.texts):  
    Tick.set_gid(t, 'tooltip_% d'% i)  
       
ax.set_xlim(-30, 30)  
ax.set_ylim(-30, 30)  
ax.set_aspect('equal'
  
fig.suptitle('matplotlib.axis.Tick.set_gid() \
function Example', fontweight ="bold")  
     
plt.show() 

Output:
