Plotly subplot problem

import pandas as pd

#from plotly.subplots import make_subplots

import plotly.graph_objs as go

import plotly

# rm_main is a mandatory function,

# the number of arguments has to be the number of input ports (can be none)

def rm_main():


            fig =, cols=2)



            go.Scatter(x=[1, 2, 3], y=[4, 5, 6]),

            row=1, col=1




            go.Scatter(x=[20, 30, 40], y=[50, 60, 70]),

            row=1, col=2



            fig['layout']['xaxis{}'.format(1)].update({'domain': [0, 0.49]})


This is not creating subplot . Howwver jupyter notebook is creating subplot.

I am using RM 9.2

plotly 3.6.1

    Hello @MohammedHasan_G

    You should add some statements in the code. Try the below XML code in your Rapidminer. Tou use the below XML code, copy the code from below and paste in your XML window and click on green tick mark, You can see the process. If you cannot find XML window go to View --> Show Panel --> XML. Also, do not forget to change the repository entry to a location where you want to save this plot in "write file" operator.

    XML Code: (Click on Show)

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><process version="9.3.001">

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the answer. I got the plot. However, I am confused about the code. Actually I need the html file with interactive plot. I do not need the png file. Here I can see you are creating png file and saving in the directory.

    I tried this code. Because I don't need the png file and it worked.

    def rm_main():
    fig =, cols=2)
    fig.add_trace(go.Scatter(x=[1, 2, 3], y=[4, 5, 6]),row=1, col=1)
    fig.add_trace(go.Scatter(x=[20, 30, 40], y=[50, 60, 70]),row=1, col=2)
    fig['layout']['xaxis{}'.format(1)].update({'domain': [0, 0.49]})
    plotly.offline.plot(fig, filename = 'hhh.html')
    path = "PlotTest.png"
    #myfile = open(path,'r')

    However I tried to comment these two lines
    path = "PlotTest.png"

    Why without these two lines, the html file is not found. Can you please clarify me, what is the relation between creating html file and png file in case of subplot. I mean why I need to add these two extra lines in case of subplot

    I also mentioned, This problem happened during only subplot. Normal html plot I can create without any problem (means without these two lines).
