# Remarking¶

Got something to highlight? Make a remark!

## trigger condition¶

To add a remark, pass a `condition`

; upon meeting that `condition`

, the `remarks`

will appear.

```
[1]:
```

```
import numpy as np
import ahlive as ah
xs = np.array([0, 1, 2])
ys = np.array([3, 4, 5])
arr = ah.Array(xs, ys)
arr = arr.remark(
condition=ys == 4,
remarks='y equals to 4!!'
)
arr.render()
```

```
[1]:
```

`remark`

does not save the object inplace so be sure to either save it to a new variable or same variable!

Sometimes, when joining `ah.Array`

s, using `condition`

can get flaky.

```
[2]:
```

```
import numpy as np
import ahlive as ah
xs = np.array([0, 1, 2])
ys = np.array([3, 4, 5])
arr = ah.Array(xs, ys)
arr = arr - arr
try:
arr = arr.remark(
condition=ys == 4,
remarks='y equals to 4!!'
)
arr.render()
except ValueError as e:
print(e)
```

```
operands could not be broadcast together with shapes (3,) () (2,6)
```

To get around that, use the `xr.Dataset`

under `data`

for `condition`

.

```
[3]:
```

```
import numpy as np
import ahlive as ah
xs = np.array([0, 1, 2])
ys = np.array([3, 4, 5])
arr = ah.Array(xs, ys)
arr = arr - arr
ds = arr.data[1, 1]
arr = arr.remark(
condition=ds["y"] == 4,
remarks='y equals to 4!!'
)
arr.render()
```

```
[3]:
```

```
[4]:
```

```
import numpy as np
import ahlive as ah
xs = np.array([0, 1, 2])
ys = np.array([3, 4, 5])
arr = ah.Array(xs, ys)
arr = arr - arr
arr.reference(y0s="y", last=True).render()
```

```
[4]:
```

## convenient conditions¶

Instead of formulating a `condition`

, for convenience, values can be passed to `xs`

, `ys`

, `cs`

, `labels`

, `state_labels`

, and `inline_labels`

.

When the data values match the conditional values for the given label, `remarks`

will trigger.

```
[5]:
```

```
import numpy as np
import ahlive as ah
xs = np.array([0, 1, 2])
ys = np.array([3, 4, 5])
arr = ah.Array(xs, ys)
arr = arr - arr
ds = arr.data[1, 1]
arr = arr.remark(
ys=4,
remarks='y equals to 4!!'
)
arr.render()
```

```
[5]:
```

Values to match can be `Iterables`

as well.

```
[6]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 5])
arr = arr.remark(xs=[1, 2], remarks="y is matched!")
arr.render()
```

```
[6]:
```

Multiple `remarks`

can be passed too, as long as it matches the number of states.

```
[7]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 5])
arr = arr.remark(xs=[1, 2], remarks=['wont show', '1st show', '2nd show'])
arr.render()
```

```
[7]:
```

Any labels listed under “Data variables” is valid for use as long as it contains a `state`

dimension.

```
[8]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 5], s=[6, 7, 8])
print(arr)
arr = arr.remark(s=[6, 7], remarks=['the size is 6', 'the size is 7', ''])
arr.render()
```

```
<ahlive.Data>
Subplot: (1, 1)
Dimensions: (item: 1, state: 3)
Data variables:
x (item, state) float64 0.0 1.0 2.0
y (item, state) float64 3.0 4.0 5.0
s (item, state) float64 6.0 7.0 8.0
chart (item) <U7 'scatter'
label (item, state) <U1 '' '' ''
group (item) <U1 ''
Attributes (0/49):
```

```
[8]:
```

## dynamic remarks¶

Rather than setting static values for `remarks`

, passing a label from the dataset, e.g. `x`

, `y`

, `c`

, `label`

, `state_label`

, and `inline_label`

(without the “s” suffix), can dynamically grab the value for that label at that given condition. Any labels listed under “Data variables” is valid for use as long as it contains a `state`

dimension.

```
[9]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 5])
print(arr)
arr = arr.remark(xs=[1, 2], remarks='x')
arr.render()
```

```
<ahlive.Data>
Subplot: (1, 1)
Dimensions: (item: 1, state: 3)
Data variables:
x (item, state) float64 0.0 1.0 2.0
y (item, state) float64 3.0 4.0 5.0
chart (item) <U7 'scatter'
label (item, state) <U1 '' '' ''
group (item) <U1 ''
Attributes (0/49):
```

```
[9]:
```

Note, remarks will be triggered every time the conditional value is met.

```
[10]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 4])
arr = arr.remark(ys=4, remarks='y')
arr.render()
```

```
[10]:
```

## delay durations¶

It is also possible to add delays, in seconds, where there was a remark through `durations`

.

```
[11]:
```

```
import numpy as np
import ahlive as ah
xs = np.array([0, 1, 2])
ys = np.array([3, 4, 5])
arr = ah.Array(xs, ys)
arr = arr.remark(
condition=ys == 4,
remarks='y equals to 4!!',
durations=2
)
arr.render()
```

```
[11]:
```

`durations`

is only supported with gif, i.e. not video formats!

## first encounter¶

To have the `remarks`

trigger only once on the initial match, set `first`

to `True`

.

```
[12]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 4])
arr = arr.remark(ys=4, remarks='y', first=True)
arr.render()
```

```
gifsicle: warning: trivial adaptive palette (only 255 colors in source)
```

```
[12]:
```

`first`

operates separately on each conditional value, i.e. `remarks`

will trigger for 3 and the first 4, but not the last 4.

```
[13]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 4])
arr = arr.remark(ys=[3, 4], remarks='y', first=True)
arr.render()
```

```
[13]:
```

`first`

does not work with manually input `condition`

, only with convenient conditions.

## persist plot¶

To have the plot marker persist:

```
[14]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 4])
arr = arr.remark(ys=4, remarks='y', persist_plot=True)
arr.render()
```

```
[14]:
```

## persist inline¶

To have the inline label persist:

```
[15]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 4])
arr = arr.remark(ys=4, remarks='y', persist_inline=True)
arr.render()
```

```
[15]:
```

## tolerance levels¶

An absolute tolerance `atol`

can be specified for inexact matching.

```
[16]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 4])
arr = arr.remark(ys=4.15, remarks='y', atol=0.5)
arr.render()
```

```
[16]:
```

A relative tolerance `rtol`

can be passed too.

```
[17]:
```

```
import ahlive as ah
arr = ah.Array([0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 4])
arr = arr.remark(ys=4.15, remarks='y', rtol=0.1)
arr.render()
```

```
[17]:
```

`rtol`

and `atol`

cannot be used with the `condition`

keyword.
