# Difference between revisions of "Template:Axis params"

Common axis parameters
Parameter Default value Explanation
'ID' 'none'

To identify the axis

'tag' 'none'

To align blocks w.r.t each other along axes with same tag

'title' ''

Axis title

'title_x_shift' 0.0

Title shift in x-direction

'title_y_shift' 0.25

Title shift in y-direction

'scale_type' 'linear'

Scale type. can be

• 'linear': linear scale
• 'log': logarithmic scale
• 'smart linear': linear scale with equal spacings
• 'smart log': logarithmic scale with equal spacings, can also have negative values
• 'manual point': Points and corresponding text positions are given manually in 'manual axis data'. No line is drawn.
• 'manual line': Ticks and corresponding text positions are given manually in 'manual axis data'. Line is drawn.
'tick_levels' 4

How many levels (minor, minor-minor, etc.) of ticks are drawn. Largest effect to 'linear' scale.

'tick_text_levels' 3

How many levels (minor, minor-minor, etc.) of texts are drawn. Largest effect to 'linear' scale.

'tick_side' 'right'

Tick and text side in final paper. Can be:

• 'right'
• 'left'
'reference' False

If axis is treated as reference line that is a turning point.

Fraction of reference line over other lines

'manual_axis_data' {}

Manually set tick/point positions and text positions. Could be for example:

{1:'1',3.14:r'$\pi$',5:'5',7:'seven',10:'10'}
'title_draw_center' False

Title is drawn to center of line

'title_distance_center' 0.5

Distance of centered title from line if centered title

'title_opposite_tick' True

Title in opposite direction w.r.t ticks

'align_func' lambda u:u

function to align different scalings

'align_x_offset' 0.0

If axis is aligned with other axis, this value x offsets final scale

'align_y_offset' 0.0

If axis is aligned with other axis, this value y offsets final scale

'text_format' r"$%4.4g$ "

Format for numbers in scale.

'extra_params' --

List of dictionary of params to be drawn additionally.

'text_distance_#' --

where #=0,1,2,3 or 4. Distance of text from scale line. Number corresponds to the level, where 0 is the major tick and 4 is the most minor ticks.

'grid_length_#' --

where #=0,1,2,3 or 4. Length of the tick. Number corresponds to the level, where 0 is the major tick and 4 is the most minor ticks.

'text_size_#' --

where #=0,1,2,3 or 4. Text size. For example: text.size.small, text.size.scriptsize or text.size.tiny . Number corresponds to the level, where 0 is the major tick and 4 is the most minor ticks.

'text_size_log_#' --

where #=0,1 or 2. Text size. For example: text.size.small, text.size.scriptsize or text.size.tiny . Number corresponds to the level, where 0 is the major tick and 2 is the most minor ticks.

'full_angle' False

If true, text can be upside down, otherwise +- 90 degrees from horizontal. Good foor example for full circle scales.

'extra_angle' 0.0

Angle to rotate tick text from horizontal along tick.

'text_horizontal_align_center' False

Aligns tick text horizontally to center. Good when text rotated 90 degrees.

'turn_relative' False

Side left or right is relative according to traveling of scale from min to max.

'arrow_size' 0.2

Used with arrow scale.

'arrow_length' 1.0

Used with arrow scale.

'arrow_color' color.rgb.black

Used with arrow scale.

'axis_color' color.rgb.black

Color of axis.

'text_color' color.rgb.black

Color of tick texts.

'extra_titles' []

List of extra title dicts for scale. Could be i.e.

[{'dx':1.0,
'dy':1.0,
'text':'extra title 1',
'width':5,
'pyx_extra_defs':[color.rgb.red,text.size.Huge]
},
{'text':'extra title 2'}
]
'base_start' None

Defines number with 'base_stop' (instead of u_min or u_max) to find major tick decades.

'base_stop' None

Defines number with 'base_start' (instead of u_min or u_max) to find major tick decades.
