XYAxes.altx(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Alias and more intuitive name for twiny. The matplotlib twiny function generates two x axes with a shared (“twin”) y axis. Enforces the following settings.

  • Places the old x axis on the bottom and the new x axis on the top.

  • Makes the old top spine invisible and the new bottom, left, and right spines invisible.

  • Adjusts the x axis tick, tick label, and axis label positions according to the visible spine positions.

  • Locks the old and new y axis limits and scales, and makes the new y axis labels invisible.
