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_zorder() Function

The Tick.set_zorder() function in axis module of matplotlib library is used to Set the zorder for the artist. Artists with lower zorder values are drawn first. 
 

Syntax: Tick.set_zorder(self, level) 

Parameters: This method accepts the following parameters. 

  • level: This parameter contains the float value.

Return value: This method does not return any value. 



Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.axis.Tick.set_zorder() 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  
        
     
d = np.arange(49).reshape(7, 7)  
xx, yy = np.meshgrid(np.arange(8), np.arange(8))  
        
fig, ax = plt.subplots()  
        
ax.set_aspect(1)  
m = ax.pcolormesh(xx**2, yy**2, d**2
     
Tick.set_zorder(m, -5
  
ax.set_title('matplotlib.axis.Tick.set_zorder() \
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  
        
     
xx = np.random.rand(6, 5)  
        
fig, (ax3, ax4) = plt.subplots(1, 2)  
        
m = ax3.pcolor(xx)  
        
ax3.set_title("No Zorder value ")  
        
m = ax4.pcolor(xx)  
Tick.set_zorder(m, 5)  
       
ax4.set_title("Zorder Value : 5")
  
fig.suptitle('matplotlib.axis.Tick.set_zorder() \
function Example', fontweight ="bold")  
     
plt.show() 

Output:
