MinTickLen(axis)

Length of minor tick marks for a Plot

Description:

This attribute controls the appearance of an annotated coordinate grid (drawn with the astGrid function) by determining the length of the minor tick marks drawn on the axes of a Plot. It takes a separate value for each physical axis of the Plot so that, for instance, the setting " MinTickLen(2)=0" specifies the length of the minor tick marks drawn on the second axis.

The MinTickLen value should be given as a fraction of the minimum dimension of the plotting area. Negative values cause minor tick marks to be placed on the outside of the corresponding grid line or axis (but subject to any clipping imposed by the underlying graphics system), while positive values cause them to be placed on the inside.

The default value is +0.007.

Type:
Floating point.
