Axis

General axis parameters


axisAlgorithm option
Algorithm used to position tick labels on axes. See An Extension of Wilkinson’s Algorithm for Positioning Tick Labels on Axes. Justin Talbot, Sharon Lin, Pat Hanrahan.

Default: wilkinson
Options: heckbert, wilkinson, wilkinsonExtended, rPretty
Percentage to extend the values of the data to ensure all the data points are plotted inside and not over the edges of the graph
Default: 0.1
Thickness of the min and max axis ticks in two dimensional plots.
Default: 1
Font size of the axis ticks in one, two and three dimensional plots. Be aware that auto scaling font must be turned off for this property to take effect. A more convenient way to modify the size is to use the tick scaling factor
Default: 12
Scaling factor used to increase or decrease tick font size in the canvas in one, two and three dimensional plots
Default: 1
Thickness of the axis ticks.
Default: 1
Color for the axis title in one, two and three dimensional plots
Default: rgb(0,0,0)
Font size for the axis titles in one, two and three dimensional plots. Be aware that auto scaling font must be turned off for this property to take effect. A more convenient way to modify the size is to use the axis title scaling factor
Default: 12
Font style for the axis titles.
Default:
Options: , bold, italic, bold italic
Scaling factor used to increase or decrease title font size in the canvas in one, two and three dimensional plots
Default: 1
Flag to indicate whether to use loose positioning when using the wilkinson algorithm to position the labels on the axis. There will not be a difference most of the times.
