tick_locations

property Axis.tick_locations

Return or set the tick locations for this axis.

Setting this to None will revert back to the default, automatically determined, tick locations.

Examples

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()
