# FrameTicks

 FrameTicksis an option for 2D graphics functions that specifies tick marks for the edges of a frame.
• The following settings can be given for FrameTicks:
 None no tick marks drawn Automatic tick marks placed automatically True tick marks placed automatically on bottom and left edges All tick marks placed automatically on all edges {{left,right},{bottom,top}} tick mark options specified separately for each edge
• When separate tick mark specifications are given for each edge, All specifies that tick mark labels should be included.
• 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.
Put a frame, but no ticks:
Place frame tick marks and labels automatically:
Place frame tick marks at the specified positions:
Specify overall frame ticks style, including frame tick labels, using FrameTicksStyle:

 Scope   (10)
Place frame ticks and labels on all the edges:
Place frame ticks on the left edge of the frame:
Place frame ticks on the right and top edges:
Draw frame ticks at the specified positions on the right and bottom edges:
Draw frame ticks at the specified positions with the specific labels:
Specify frame ticks with scaled lengths:
Specify frame ticks with scaled lengths in positive and negative directions:
Specify the style of each frame tick:
Specify overall frame ticks style, using FrameTicksStyle:
Specify frame ticks style for each edge:
Individually styled frame ticks can be used with FrameTicksStyle, and have higher priority:
Specify a frame ticks function applied to and values for each direction:
FrameTicksStyle affects frame ticks and frame tick labels:
LabelStyle offers overall style of all the label-like elements, including frame tick labels:
FrameTicksStyle can be used together with LabelStyle and has higher priority:
FrameStyle affects the style of the frame, frame labels, frame ticks, and frame tick labels:
FrameTicksStyle can be used together with FrameStyle and has higher priority:
Individually styled frame ticks can be used with other styles and have higher priority:
Ticks controls the ticks and tick labels on the axes:
Use DateListPlot to get frame ticks that correspond to date and time:
