Control an image using widgets.

  • X (function or image like) – If a function it must return an image-like object. See matplotlib.pyplot.imshow for the full set of valid options.

  • cmap (str or ~matplotlib.colors.Colormap) – The Colormap instance or registered colormap name used to map scalar data to colors. This parameter is ignored for RGB(A) data. forwarded to matplotlib

  • norm (~matplotlib.colors.Normalize, optional) – The .Normalize instance used to scale scalar data to the [0, 1] range before mapping to colors using cmap. By default, a linear scaling mapping the lowest value to 0 and the highest to 1 is used. This parameter is ignored for RGB(A) data. forwarded to matplotlib

  • autoscale_cmap (bool) – If True rescale the colormap for every function update. Will not update if vmin and vmax are provided or if the returned image is RGB(A) like. forwarded to matplotlib

  • aspect ({‘equal’, ‘auto’} or float) – forwarded to matplotlib

  • interpolation (str) – forwarded to matplotlib

  • ax (matplotlib axis, optional) – The axis on which to plot. If none the current axis will be used.

  • slider_formats (None, string, or dict) – If None a default value of decimal points will be used. Uses the new {} style formatting

  • force_ipywidgets (boolean) – If True ipywidgets will always be used, even if not using the ipympl backend. If False the function will try to detect if it is ok to use ipywidgets If ipywidgets are not used the function will fall back on matplotlib widgets

  • play_buttons (bool or str or dict, optional) – Whether to attach an ipywidgets.Play widget to any sliders that get created. If a boolean it will apply to all kwargs, if a dictionary you choose which sliders you want to attach play buttons too.

    • None: no sliders

    • True: sliders on the lft

    • False: no sliders

    • ‘left’: sliders on the left

    • ‘right’: sliders on the right

  • controls (mpl_interactions.controller.Controls) – An existing controls object if you want to tie multiple plot elements to the same set of controls

  • display_controls (boolean) – Whether the controls should display themselve on creation. Ignored if controls is specified.
