BUILT-IN MATHEMATICA SYMBOL

is an option for gauge functions that specifies how much space to leave around the scale.

## DetailsDetails

• Padding specified by ScalePadding describes the extent of the gauge background that should be drawn around the scale.
• For each direction specified, ScalePadding can take the following values:
•  Automatic an automatic amount of padding None leave no padding in that direction s s coordinate units Scaled[s] a fraction s of the plot
• ScalePadding can take the following forms for linear scaled gauges:
•  p the same horizantal and vertical padding {pr,py} different horizantal and vertical padding {{px left,px right},...} different padding on each side of the axis etc.
• ScalePadding can take the following forms for circularly scaled gauges:
•  p angular padding p on each end of the scale {pmin,pmax} padding before the scale and after None no padding around the scale Automatic automatically determined padding Full pad to the nearest chord of a circle All pad the scale to make a complete circle

### Basic Examples (3)Basic Examples (3)

By default there is a set amount of padding around the scale:

 Out[2]=

Specify a constant horizontal and vertical or angular padding:

 Out[1]=

Use a scaled value for the constant horizontal and vertical padding:

 Out[2]=

Specify different horizontal and vertical padding on each side:

 Out[1]=
