- Axis.set_ticks(ticks, labels=None, *, minor=False, **kwargs)#
Set this Axis' tick locations and optionally labels.
If necessary, the view limits of the Axis are expanded so that all given ticks are visible.
- tickslist of floats
Some tick formatters will not label arbitrary tick positions; e.g. log formatters only label decade ticks by default. In such a case you can set a formatter explicitly on the axis using
Axis.set_major_formatteror provide formatted labels yourself.
- labelslist of str, optional
List of tick labels. If not set, the labels are generated with the axis tick
- minorbool, default: False
False, set the major ticks; if
True, the minor ticks.
The mandatory expansion of the view limits is an intentional design choice to prevent the surprise of a non-visible tick. If you need other limits, you should set the limits explicitly after setting the ticks.
