  • AxesStyle is an option for graphics functions which specifies how axes should be rendered.
  • AxesStyle can be used in both two- and three-dimensional graphics.
  • AxesStyle -> style specifies that all axes are to be generated with the specified graphics directive, or list of graphics directives.
  • AxesStyle -> xstyle , ystyle , ... specifies that axes should use graphics directives xstyle, ... . The styles must be enclosed in lists, perhaps of length one.
  • Styles can be specified using graphics directives such as Dashing, Hue and Thickness.
  • The default color of axes is specified by the option DefaultColor.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.9.5Section 2.9.13.
  • See also: Prolog, Epilog, PlotStyle, FrameStyle.

    Further Examples

    Here is one plot using default settings and another with the axes colored red and made a bit thicker than the default.

    Evaluate the cells to compare the graphics.
