I have an existing plot that was created with pandas like this:
The y axis is format as float and I want to change the y axis to percentages. All of the solutions I found use ax.xyz syntax and I can only place code below the line above that creates the plot (I cannot add ax=ax to the line above.)
How can I format the y axis as percentages without changing the line above?
Here is the solution I found but requires that I redefine the plot:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np import matplotlib.ticker as mtick data = [8,12,15,17,18,18.5] perc = np.linspace(0,100,len(data)) fig = plt.figure(1, (7,4)) ax = fig.add_subplot(1,1,1) ax.plot(perc, data) fmt="%.0f%%" # Format you want the ticks, e.g. '40%' xticks = mtick.FormatStrFormatter(fmt) ax.xaxis.set_major_formatter(xticks) plt.show()
