Revision history [back]

I suppose that you are doing something like :

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
plt.show(myplot)


The help for plt.show (available by typing plt.show?) states, among other not unintersing things :

Signature:      plt.show(*, block=None)
Docstring:
Display all open figures.

block : bool, optional
Whether to wait for all figures to be closed before returning.

If True block and run the GUI main loop until all figure windows
are closed.

If False ensure that all figure windows are displayed and return
immediately.  In this case, you are responsible for ensuring
that the event loop is running to have responsive figures.

Defaults to True in non-interactive mode and to False in
interactive mode (see .pyplot.isinteractive).

ion : Enable interactive mode, which shows / updates the figure
after
every plotting command, so that calling "show()" is not
necessary.

ioff : Disable interactive mode. savefig : Save the figure to an
image file instead of showing it on screen.


Is that illumination enough ?
