Axis.set_ticklabels(ticklabels, *, minor=False, **kwargs)[source]#

[Discouraged] Set the text values of the tick labels.


The use of this method is discouraged, because of the dependency on tick positions. In most cases, you'll want to use set_[x/y]ticks(positions, labels) instead.

If you are using this method, you should always fix the tick positions before, e.g. by using Axis.set_ticks or by explicitly setting a FixedLocator. Otherwise, ticks are free to move and the labels may end up in unexpected positions.

Texts for labeling each tick location in the sequence set by Axis.set_ticks; the number of labels must match the number of locations.


If True, set minor ticks instead of major ticks.
