MeshStyle

MeshStyle

is an option for Plot3D, DensityPlot, and other plotting functions that specifies the style in which to draw a mesh.

Details

  • MeshStyle->g specifies that a graphics directive g should be used to draw all mesh elements in a plot.
  • MeshStyle->{g1,g2,} specifies that successive directives gi should be used cyclically to draw elements associated with successive mesh functions.
  • MeshStyle can give any applicable graphics directive, including colors and Opacity.
  • Directives can be combined using Directive[g1,g2,].
  • MeshStyle gives the style for mesh lines in functions like Plot3D and DensityPlot, and for mesh points in functions like Plot and ListLinePlot.
