I’m trying to write a GUI that takes multiple lists and produces a scatter plot using Jupyter Notebook. The scatter plot has a dropdown menu that changes the data and colors from the menu choices. I know that the color change works because I pulled it from the example code. Right now, I have got the buttons displayed, but I can’t seem to interact with the data. As of now, there is nothing displayed except for a blank graph and three dropdown menus. I took a look at https://plot.ly/python/dropdowns/ and https://plot.ly/python/dropdown-widget/. Because I’m relatively new to this, I’m not sure what I need to pick out from it.
I would appreciate it if anyone could help me out. The script is below.
Thanks in advance!
