class SimpleFormatter(precision=None, zerotrim=None, tickrange=None, wraprange=None, prefix=None, suffix=None, negpos=None)[source]

Bases: Formatter

A general purpose number formatter. This is similar to AutoFormatter but suitable for arbitrary formatting not necessarily associated with an Axis instance.

  • precision (int, default: {6, 2}) – The maximum number of digits after the decimal point. Default is 6 when zerotrim is True and 2 otherwise.

  • zerotrim (bool, default: rc['format.zerotrim']) – Whether to trim trailing decimal zeros.

  • tickrange (2-tuple of float, optional) – Range within which major tick marks are labeled. All ticks are labeled by default.

  • wraprange (2-tuple of float, optional) – Range outside of which tick values are wrapped. For example, (-180, 180) will format a value of 200 as -160.

  • prefix, suffix (str, optional) – Prefix and suffix for all tick strings. The suffix is added before the optional negpos suffix.

  • negpos (str, optional) – Length-2 string indicating the suffix for “negative” and “positive” numbers, meant to replace the minus sign.
