matplotlib.axis.Axis.set_ticklabels

Axis.set_ticklabels(ticklabels, *args, **kwargs)

Set the text values of the tick labels. Return a list of Text instances. Use kwarg minor=True to select minor ticks. All other kwargs are used to update the text object properties. As for get_ticklabels, label1 (left or bottom) is affected for a given tick only if its label1On attribute is True, and similarly for label2. The list of returned label text objects consists of all such label1 objects followed by all such label2 objects.

The input ticklabels is assumed to match the set of tick locations, regardless of the state of label1On and label2On.

ACCEPTS: sequence of strings or Text objects
