Frame

  • Frame is an option for two-dimensional graphics functions which specifies whether a frame should be drawn around the plot.
  • Frame -> True by default draws a frame with tick marks. If Ticks -> Automatic, setting Frame -> True suppresses tick marks on axes.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.9.3, Section 2.9.1, Section 2.9.5Section 2.9.5.
  • See also: Boxed.

    Further Examples

    Here is one plot without and another with a frame drawn around it.
