FrameTicks

FrameTicks

is an option for 2D graphics functions that specifies tick marks for the edges of a frame.

Details

  • 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
  • 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.
