https://ask.sagemath.org/question/45422/how-to-change-color-after-calling-plot/?answer=45605#post-id-45605Hello, everybody.
I found a solution a few days after asking this question, but I couldn't post it until now.
When we write
p = plot(x^2) + plot(x^3)
Sage creates a list of two "line groups". For example, if we write `p[0]`, Sage answers something like "Line defined by 223 points". This is actually the set of points that define the curve for $x^2$. Similarly, p[1] is the set of points for $x^3$ .
Now, we can access the options associated with each line set with
p[i].options()
where i=0 or i=1 in this case. We will receive an answer like
{'alpha': 1,
'legend_color': None,
'legend_label': None,
'rgbcolor': (0, 0, 1),
'thickness': 1}
As we can see, there is a field called "rgbcolor", which has a triplet associated. We can change that with any values we want, and use the `set_options` command to set the new configurations. (There are other properties that can be manually changed.)
Next, I give an example of how to change the color of both function graphs to green:
p = plot(x^2) + plot(x^3)
for plt in p:
opt = plt.options()
opt['rgbcolor'] = Color('green')
plt.set_options(opt)
I hope this helps to whoever needs to change colors (or other attributes) AFTER calling `plot`.Sat, 02 Mar 2019 17:26:20 -0600https://ask.sagemath.org/question/45422/how-to-change-color-after-calling-plot/?answer=45605#post-id-45605
