Matplotlib is a library in Python and it is numerical – mathematical extension for NumPy library. The figure module provides the top-level Artist, the Figure, which contains all the plot elements. This module is used to control the default spacing of the subplots and top level container for all plot elements.

matplotlib.figure.Figure.get_size_inches() method

The get_size_inches() method figure module of matplotlib library is used to get the current size of the figure in inches.

Syntax: get_size_inches(self)

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameters.

Returns: This method return size (width, height) of the figure in inches.



Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.figure.Figure.get_size_inches() function in matplotlib.figure:

Example 1:




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
from matplotlib.figure import Figure
from mpl_toolkits.axisartist.axislines import Subplot 
import numpy as np 
     
fig = plt.figure() 
      
ax = Subplot(fig, 111
fig.add_subplot(ax)  
  
w = fig.get_size_inches()
ax.text(0.2, 0.5,
        "Value Return by get_size_inches() : "
        + str(w),
        fontweight ="bold")
    
fig.canvas.draw()
  
fig.suptitle('matplotlib.figure.Figure.get_size_inches()\
 function Example', fontweight ="bold"
  
plt.show()

Output:

Example 2:




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
from matplotlib.figure import Figure
import numpy as np 
       
fig = plt.figure(edgecolor = "red", figsize =(7, 6)) 
       
ax = fig.add_axes([0.1, 0.1, 0.8, 0.8])
     
xx = np.arange(0, 2 * np.pi, 0.01
ax.plot(xx, np.sin(xx)) 
   
w = fig.get_size_inches()
ax.text(1.5, 0,
        "Value Return by get_size_inches() : " 
        + str(w),
        fontweight ="bold")
     
fig.canvas.draw()
  
fig.suptitle('matplotlib.figure.Figure.get_size_inches() \
function Example', fontweight ="bold"
  
plt.show()
