# [pxdislin/DISLIN] Making the axis invisible

```[This did not seem to go out a couple of days ago so I'm resending it.]

Potentially a wild goose chase, but DISLIN does not seem to have a
mailing list.

Is there a way to hide the axis in a DISLIN generated figure?  For
example, on O'Reilly's OnLAMP site
http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/python/2000/07/05/numerically.html
The code below draws a line drawing of a house.  What I want to do is
draw the house, but without the x and y axis that is drawn.  I've
thought that if I removed the

line that may do it, but I find that pxDislin requires this.  I'vle also
tried setting
axis(color = 'BACK')

but that did not seem to do the trick either.  Any ideas?   I can work
with either DISLIN (from Python, of course) or pxdislin.

Thanks.
Louis

from pxDislin import *
from Numeric import *

plot = dPlot()
axis = dAxis(-20,20,-20,20, color = 'BACK')
axis(color = 'BACK')

house_pts = array([[5,5,-5,-5,5,4,4,2,2,5,5,0,-5],
[-5,5,5,-5,-5,-5,-1,-1,-5,-5,5,8,5]])

house     = dMultiLine(house_pts[0],house_pts[1])
box_pts = array([[-10,-10,-5,-5,-10],
[-10, -5, -5,-10,-10]])
box = dMultiLine(box_pts[0], box_pts[1])

line = dVector(-5, -5,5,-10, color = 'blue')
plot.show()
