## Add axes to the figure (where you will plot the data)
## [x_lowerCorner,y_lowerCorner,width,height]
## The full figure canvas goes from [0,1] both in x and y
## The use of sharex=axname will make the two axes linked in matplotlib interactive mode
## The same can be done with sharey=axname

## Adjust label parameters for an axis to show (or not) the number labels

axHistY.tick_params(labelleft='off')

## Generate random set of data

## Plot data points, 2D histogram and contour levels on the main axes
## the picker keyword allows for added interactive actions to your plot by selecting
## closer point to your mouse click and have accessible data to play with.
## The zorder keyword allows you to control which elements of the plot apper on top.
## The higher the value of zorder the more upfront the element will be.
## This is all done in relative terms.

## This is not useful here, but can be useful in future scenarios since we use loglog plots often
## This will make your axis have the number labels in scalar format and not in power law format
axMain.xaxis.set_major_formatter(mpt.ScalarFormatter(useOffset=False))

## Turn on the minorticks in the plot to look more 'scientific'. Helpful to read values off plots in an easier way

## Set your plot labels using mathtext, same as you would do in LaTex
axMain.set_xlabel(r'$var_x$')
axMain.set_ylabel(r'$var_y$')

## Connect your figure with keyboard action. In this case, pressing a key while
## the matplotlib window is active will execute the function exit_code
## This in turn wil either close the plot or exit the program if you click
## 'q' or 'escape' respectively
def exit_code(event):
if event.key=='escape':
sys.exit()
if event.key=='q':
mpl.close('all')

## closest element (data point, line, etc.) and allow you to access the data
## This is good for exploratory plots where you need specific information to
## add to that shown in the plot
