vispy.plot.plotwidget module

class vispy.plot.plotwidget.PlotWidget(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: vispy.scene.widgets.widget.Widget

Widget to facilitate plotting

Parameters
*argsarguments

Arguments passed to the ViewBox super class.

**kwargskeywoard arguments

Keyword arguments passed to the ViewBox super class.

Notes

This class is typically instantiated implicitly by a Figure instance, e.g., by doing fig[0, 0].

colorbar(cmap, position='right', label='', clim=('', ''), border_width=0.0, border_color='black', **kwargs)[source]

Show a ColorBar

Parameters
cmapstr | vispy.color.ColorMap

Either the name of the ColorMap to be used from the standard set of names (refer to vispy.color.get_colormap), or a custom ColorMap object. The ColorMap is used to apply a gradient on the colorbar.

position{‘left’, ‘right’, ‘top’, ‘bottom’}

The position of the colorbar with respect to the plot. ‘top’ and ‘bottom’ are placed horizontally, while ‘left’ and ‘right’ are placed vertically

labelstr

The label that is to be drawn with the colorbar that provides information about the colorbar.

climtuple (min, max)

the minimum and maximum values of the data that is given to the colorbar. This is used to draw the scale on the side of the colorbar.

border_widthfloat (in px)

The width of the border the colormap should have. This measurement is given in pixels

border_colorstr | vispy.color.Color

The color of the border of the colormap. This can either be a str as the color’s name or an actual instace of a vipy.color.Color

Returns
colorbarinstance of ColorBarWidget

histogram(data, bins=10, color='w', orientation='h')[source]

Calculate and show a histogram of data

Parameters
dataarray-like

Data to histogram. Currently only 1D data is supported.

binsint | array-like

Number of bins, or bin edges.

colorinstance of Color

Color of the histogram.

orientation{‘h’, ‘v’}

Orientation of the histogram.

Returns
histinstance of Polygon

The histogram polygon.

image(data, cmap='cubehelix', clim='auto', fg_color=None, **kwargs)[source]

Show an image

Parameters
datandarray

Should have shape (N, M), (N, M, 3) or (N, M, 4).

cmapstr

Colormap name.

climstr | tuple

Colormap limits. Should be 'auto' or a two-element tuple of min and max values.

fg_colorColor or None

Sets the plot foreground color if specified.

kwargskeyword arguments.

More args to pass to Image.

Returns
imageinstance of Image

The image.

Notes

The colormap is only used if the image pixels are scalars.

mesh(vertices=None, faces=None, vertex_colors=None, face_colors=None, color=(0.5, 0.5, 1.0), fname=None, meshdata=None, shading='auto')[source]

Show a 3D mesh

Parameters
verticesarray

Vertices.

facesarray | None

Face definitions.

vertex_colorsarray | None

Vertex colors.

face_colorsarray | None

Face colors.

colorinstance of Color

Color to use.

fnamestr | None

Filename to load. If not None, then vertices, faces, and meshdata must be None.

meshdataMeshData | None

Meshdata to use. If not None, then vertices, faces, and fname must be None.

shadingstr

Shading to use, can be None, ‘smooth’, ‘flat’, or ‘auto’. Default (‘auto’) will use None if face_colors is set, and ‘smooth’ otherwise.

Returns
meshinstance of Mesh

The mesh.

plot(data, color='k', symbol=None, line_kind='-', width=1.0, marker_size=10.0, edge_color='k', face_color='b', edge_width=1.0, title=None, xlabel=None, ylabel=None, connect='strip')[source]

Plot a series of data using lines and markers

Parameters
dataarray | two arrays

Arguments can be passed as (Y,), (X, Y) or np.array((X, Y)).

colorinstance of Color

Color of the line.

symbolstr

Marker symbol to use.

line_kindstr

Kind of line to draw. For now, only solid lines ('-') are supported.

widthfloat

Line width.

marker_sizefloat

Marker size. If size == 0 markers will not be shown.

edge_colorinstance of Color

Color of the marker edge.

face_colorinstance of Color

Color of the marker face.

edge_widthfloat

titlestr | None

The title string to be displayed above the plot

xlabelstr | None

The label to display along the bottom axis

ylabelstr | None

The label to display along the left axis.

Parameters
xarray-like

1D signal to operate on. If len(x) < n_fft, x will be zero-padded to length n_fft.

n_fftint

Number of FFT points. Much faster for powers of two.

stepint | None

Step size between calculations. If None, n_fft // 2 will be used.

fsfloat

The sample rate of the data.

windowstr | None

Window function to use. Can be 'hann' for Hann window, or None for no windowing.

normalizebool

Normalization of spectrogram values across frequencies.

color_scale{‘linear’, ‘log’}

Scale to apply to the result of the STFT. 'log' will use 10 * log10(power).

cmapstr

Colormap name.

climstr | tuple

Colormap limits. Should be 'auto' or a two-element tuple of min and max values.

Returns
specinstance of Spectrogram

The spectrogram.
