property Axis.tick_labels

Return or set the tick labels for this axis.

You can specify a sequence, to provide a unique label to every tick position; a string, to describe the label format to use for each label; or None, which will revert back to the default tick labels. A label format is a string consisting of an integer part, denoting the precision to use, and a final character, denoting the notation to use.

Allowed notations:

  • "f" for fixed notation

  • "e" for scientific notation.


Create a 2D chart with custom tick locations and labels on the y-axis.

>>> import pyvista
>>> chart = pyvista.Chart2D()
>>> _ = chart.line([0, 1, 2], [2, 1, 3])
>>> chart.y_axis.tick_locations = (0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 1, 1.5, 2, 3)
>>> chart.y_axis.tick_labels = ["Very small", "Small", "Still small",
...                             "Small?", "Not large", "Large?",
...                             "Very large"]
>>> chart.show()

Revert back to automatic tick placement.

>>> chart.y_axis.tick_locations = None
>>> chart.y_axis.tick_labels = None
>>> chart.show()

Specify a custom label format to use (fixed notation with precision 2).

>>> chart.y_axis.tick_labels = "2f"
>>> chart.show()
