How to get the color of the most recent plotted line in Python?



To get the color of the most recent plotted line, we can take the following steps −

  • Create x and y points using numpy.

  • Plot the line using x and y, with color red and linewidth 2.

  • To get the color of the line, use the get_color() method, and print it.

  • To display the figure, use the show() method.

Example

import numpy as np
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.50, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True
x = np.linspace(1, 10, 1000)
y = np.linspace(10, 20, 1000)
line, = plt.plot(x, y, c="red", lw=2)
print("Color of the most recent plot line: ", line.get_color())
plt.show()

Output

Color of the most recent plot line: red
