Set the ticks position (top, bottom, both, default or none) both sets the ticks to appear on both positions, but does not change the tick labels. ‘default’ resets the tick positions to the default: ticks on both positions, labels at bottom. ‘none’ can be used if you don’t want any ticks. ‘none’ and ‘both’ affect only the ticks, not the labels.

ACCEPTS: [ ‘top’ | ‘bottom’ | ‘both’ | ‘default’ | ‘none’ ]
