AxesStyle

AxesStyle
is an option for graphics functions that 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 style.
  • AxesStyle specifies that axes should use graphics directives xstyle, ....
  • AxesStyle gives both the style of the axes themselves, and the default style for labels and ticks. TicksStyle overrides specifications for ticks.
Specify overall axes style, including the ticks and the tick labels:
Specify the style of each axis:

Styles associated with lines affect the axes and ticks:
Styles associated with fonts affect tick labels:
Styles can be combined by Directive:
Use Arrowheads to style the axes:
AxesStyle affects the axes, axes labels, ticks, and tick labels:
LabelStyle offers overall style of all the label-like elements, including axes and tick labels:
AxesStyle can be used together with LabelStyle and has higher priority:
TicksStyle affects ticks and tick labels, but nothing else:
AxesStyle can be used together with TicksStyle, but has lower priority:
In 3D, BoxStyle is used to specify the styles of the bounding box edges, excluding the axes:
