FrameLabel

Updated In 6 Graphic
FrameLabel
is an option for Graphics, Manipulate and related functions that specifies labels to be placed on the edges of a frame.
  • FrameLabel->None specifies that no labels should be given.
  • FrameLabel->label specifies a label for the bottom edge of the frame.
  • FrameLabel->{bottom, left} specifies labels for the bottom and left-hand edges of the frame.
  • FrameLabel->{{left, right}, {bottom, top}} specifies labels for each of the edges of the frame.
  • Any expression can be specified as a label. It will be given by default in TraditionalForm. Arbitrary strings of text can be given as "text".  »
  • Labels for the vertical edges of the frame are by default written vertically. RotateLabel->False specifies that they should be horizontal.
