[Matplotlib-users] enhancement suggestion for figure window

Hi all,

One of the things I like about matplotlib is the flexibility of the
interactive figure window - panning, zooming, etc.  One thing that I would
really like is for the ability to set, perhaps via a slider, the limits in
a displayed image (clim values, or vmin, vmax arguments in call to
imshow).  I know that one can do this on the command line via the set_clim
method of the AxesImage object, but having a readily available way to do it
from the plot window would be really nice.

In QtAgg, which I use, there is already the capability to change other plot
attributes via a pop-up (axis limits, scale, label).  I'm not sure how
difficult such an addition would be.
