Hi folks, i want to add string tick labels to a 2D plot, e.g. ['$100', '$200', '$300'] on the x-axis instead of the ticks [1, 2, 3]. I see from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5439708/python-matplotlib-creating-date-ticks-from-string that i can do this with matplotlib via from matplotlib import pyplot as plt plt.plot([1,2,3],[3,4,3]) ax = plt.gca() ax.set_xticks([1,2,3]) ax.set_xticklabels(['$100','$200','$300'])
