Controlling embeded matplotlib plots using tkinter

1 New Member
I'm fairly new to programming GUI's and I'm trying to control the zoom of a figure from matplotlib using a scrollbar. I can create the canvas for the figure with...

import matplotlib
import Tkinter as Tk
from matplotlib.back ends.backend_tk agg import FigureCanvasTkA gg
root = Tk.Tk()
canvas = FigureCanvasTkA gg(f, master=root)
canvas.get_tk_w idget().pack(si de=Tk.TOP, fill=Tk.BOTH, expand=1)

and the scrollbar with...

scrollbar = Tk.Scrollbar(ro ot, orient=Tk.HORIZ ONTAL)
scrollbar.pack( side=Tk.TOP)

I just can't seem to figure out how to get the scrollbar to interact with the figures zooming functions.

If you are having a hard time because the Tkinter documentation is so limited, start here. It's old, but it's what I used to learn Tkinter. That was a long time ago, so I'll have to read the docs in order to help. If that helps you get started, post back and we can fine tune your code. If not, post back and I'll post some code for you. Welcome to the Python Forum on TSDN!

I've been asking this question at the matplotlib user list and never gotten an answer. I am hoping that there are matplotlib users here that can help.

Hi, I'm trying to create a small GUI program where I can do plots using Matplotlib. I've been trying to borrow code from the examples at the matplotlib website, but I can't get it to work. I want to be able to create a wx.Panel that contains an axis for plotting. Around it i want other panels containing various settings, buttons etc. to control the plot. So far I can't even get the program to actually show a plot in a panel.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
