Is there a way that I can make a matplotlib figure disappear and reappear in response to some event? (i.e. a keypress)
I've tried using
fig.set_visible(False) but that doesn't seem to do anything for me.
Simple example of code:
import matplotlib import matplotlib.pyplot as plt fig=matplotlib.pyplot.figure(figsize=(10, 10)) # Some other code will go here def toggle_plot(): # This function is called by a keypress to hide/show the figure fig.set_visible(not fig.get_visible()) # This doesn't work for me plt.show()
The reason I'm trying to do this is because I have a bunch of plots/animations running on the figure that show the output of a running simulation, but displaying them all the time slows down my computer a lot.
