  • FrameTicks is an option for two-dimensional graphics functions that specifies tick marks for the edges of a frame.
  • The following settings can be given for FrameTicks:
  • When tick mark specifications are given separately for each edge, the edges are ordered clockwise starting from the bottom of the frame.
  • With the Automatic setting, tick marks are usually placed at points whose coordinates have the minimum number of digits in their decimal representation.
  • For each edge, tick marks can be specified as described in the notes for Ticks.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.9.3Section 2.9.5.
  • See also: Ticks, GridLines, FaceGrids.
