+ Delete lines from subplots
+ -------------------------------
+
+ If you have have multiple-lines in subplots and would like to add or delete lines in various subplots, a good approach is to save the subplots into the objects. Later access them using the objects into which they have been copied into::
+
+ import numpy as np
+ import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
+
+ fig = plt.figure()
+ sub1 = fig.add_subplot(211) # passing subplot(211) into sub1
+ x = np.linspace(0, 50, 500)
+ sub1.plot(x, np.cos(x*x), 'b-') # plotting on current subplot
+ sub1.set_xlabel(r'$x$')
+ sub1.set_ylabel(r'$y$')
+ sub2 = fig.add_subplot(212) # passing subplot(212) into sub2
+ sub2.plot(x, np.sin(3*x), 'r-') # plotting on subplot(212)
+ sub2.plot(x, np.sin(x)*np.cos(4*x), 'k-')
+ sub2.set_ylabel(r'$y$')
+
+ # now to add a line in subplot(211)
+ sub1.plot(x,np.cos(x), 'g-' )
+ plt.show()
+
+ # delete a line from subplot(212)
+ del sub2.lines[1]
+ plt.draw()
+
