Matplotlib documentation

I couldn’t find the mentioned method in matplotlib document. Instead I found boolean methods for that.
Where is ‘off’ method in matplotlib doc?

My Code:

ax.tick_params(bottom="off")

What I expected to happen:

ax.tick_params(bottom=False)

What actually happened:


Because probably you are looking at documentation latest version of matplotlib.

You can check which version you are using by print(matplotlib.__version__) and refer same version doc.

if you check here in older version matplotlib 1.5.1 - tick_params() document you can find same.

It changed in matplotlib 3.1.0. You can see in the API change log for 3.1.0.

The latest versions of matplotlib use bool for tick_params.

The DataQuest Courses uses previous versions, check the version using matplotlib.__version__
