Tick Marks, Grid Lines & Interlaced Colors are part of Axis and they improve readability of a chart. Below is an image showing all three elements. Tick Marks have been exaggerated so that they are easily visible.
Ticks are small lines between axis and their labels. The interval of tick marks can be set by varying interval property of parent axis. Note that interval property in axis applies to ticks, grid lines, labels and interlaced colors.
The visual properties of ticks can be varied by using the following properties.
You can try out various tick properties on in the below snippet.
To display grids, set gridThickness to a value greater than zero on the corresponding axis. The repetition of grid lines can be controlled by setting interval property.
Grid lines have two properties for varying their appearance.
We assign different gridline properties to all three axis in the below snippet.
Interlacing in a Chart is when a color alternates between a set interval. If user doesn’t set interval, then the auto calculated interval is considered.
We can enable interlacing by setting interlacedColor to a color name or hex Code in the corresponding axis.
Learning all the properties, Tick marks, Grid lines, Interlaced Colors, based on interval attribute, we can draw a neat chart with higher readability using above concepts.
