How do I change the appearance/location of the axis ticklabels?
Note: the axis ticklabel refers to the (normally) numeric labels drawn at the major tick marks on an axis.
The axis ticklabel attributes control the appearance of the labels drawn at the major tick marks, apart from the format, which is discussed in the How do I change the format of the axis ticklabels? entry.
chips> get_xaxis().ticklabel angle = 0.0 color = default font = helvetica fontstyle = normal halign = -99.0 offset = 6 size = 12 style = outside valign = -99.0 visible = True
Here we use the commands to change the size, color, and position of the ticklabels:
chips> add_curve([1, 5, 10], [4.1e3, 9.5e3, 140.2e3], ["line.style", "noline"]) chips> log_scale(Y_AXIS) chips> opts = get_xaxis() chips> opts.ticklabel.color = "blue" chips> opts.ticklabel.offset = 10 chips> set_xaxis(opts) chips> set_yaxis(["ticklabel.angle", 90, "ticklabel.offset", 15, "ticklabel.halign", 0.5]) chips> set_axis(['ticklabel.size', 18])
The ChIPS GUI
The ChIPS GUI makes it easy to modify a visualization using your mouse, rather than Python functions. The GUI can also be used to add annotations - such as labels, lines, points and regions - and to zoom or pan into plots.
