Date:2007-12-06 (last modified), 2007-12-06 (created)

Some example code for how to plot an arrow using the Arrow function.

In [3]:
from matplotlib.pyplot import *
from numpy import *

x = arange(10)
y = x

# Plot junk and then a filled region
plot(x, y)

# Now lets make an arrow object
arr = Arrow(2, 2, 1, 1, edgecolor='white')

# Get the subplot that we are currently working on
ax = gca()

# Now add the arrow

# We should be able to make modifications to the arrow.
# Lets make it green.
