[Matplotlib-users] Testing of interactive functions

We just got an exciting PR in scikit-image to do manual image segmentation with matplotlib:

The manual_lasso_segmentation function in particular is astoundingly simple — a testament to the ease of use of the mpl interactive bindings. Thanks!

Because it relies on interactive clicking and click-and-dragging after a blocking call to plt.show(block=True), though, it’s tricky if not impossible to test. I’m wondering whether mpl has a testing framework for the interactive components?


PS: Also, the layout of the undo button is a bit tricky… If you have any tips for that, we are all ears! =)
