# mpl_toolkits.axisartist.axis_artist.Ticks¶

class mpl_toolkits.axisartist.axis_artist.Ticks(ticksize, tick_out=False, *, axis=None, **kwargs)[source]

Ticks are derived from Line2D, and note that ticks themselves are markers. Thus, you should use set_mec, set_mew, etc.

To change the tick size (length), you need to use set_ticksize. To change the direction of the ticks (ticks are in opposite direction of ticklabels by default), use set_tick_out(False).

draw(renderer)[source]

draw the Line with renderer unless visibility is False

get_color()[source]
