# multicolor points in one legend entry python

The solution for “multicolor points in one legend entry python” can be found here. The following code will assist you in solving the problem.

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from matplotlib.legend_handler import HandlerLineCollection
from matplotlib.collections import LineCollection

class HandlerColorLineCollection(HandlerLineCollection):
def create_artists(self, legend, artist ,xdescent, ydescent,
width, height, fontsize,trans):
x = np.linspace(0,width,self.get_numpoints(legend)+1)
y = np.zeros(self.get_numpoints(legend)+1)+height/2.-ydescent
points = np.array([x, y]).T.reshape(-1, 1, 2)
segments = np.concatenate([points[:-1], points[1:]], axis=1)
lc = LineCollection(segments, cmap=artist.cmap,
transform=trans)
lc.set_array(x)
lc.set_linewidth(artist.get_linewidth())
return [lc]

t = np.linspace(0, 10, 200)
x = np.cos(np.pi * t)
y = np.sin(t)
points = np.array([x, y]).T.reshape(-1, 1, 2)
segments = np.concatenate([points[:-1], points[1:]], axis=1)

lc = LineCollection(segments, cmap=plt.get_cmap(‘copper’),
norm=plt.Normalize(0, 10), linewidth=3)
lc.set_array(t)

fig, ax = plt.subplots()
