FrameTicks

Updated In 6 Graphic
FrameTicks
is an option for 2D graphics functions that specifies tick marks for the edges of a frame.
  • The following settings can be given for FrameTicks:
Noneno tick marks drawn
Automatictick marks placed automatically
Truetick marks placed automatically on bottom and left edges
Alltick marks placed automatically on all edges
{{left,right},{bottom,top}}tick mark options specified separately for each edge
  • Automatic 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.
  • FrameTicksStyle gives default styles to use for frame tick marks and tick mark labels.
  • Frame ticks are only shown if the frame itself is drawn, as specified by Frame.
  • FrameTicks->Automatic does not draw ticks in data plots where only z values are given, without explicit specification of x and y values.
