The TickMark class encapsulates the functionality for all chart tick marks.

The TickMark class is exposed as the MajorTickMark and MinorTickMark properties of Axis objects.

By default, major tick marks are displayed at the major grid lines, whereas minor tick marks must be explicitly displayed.

MajorTickMark.Interval is not set (Double.NaN) by default, and the tick marks are drawn according to Interval. MinorTickMark.Interval is set to Auto (0) by default, and the Chart control automatically determines the interval.

A developer can use this class to:

  • Enable or disable tick marks.

  • Set the color, width, length and line style of tick marks.

  • Specify a style that determines whether tick marks are displayed outside the axis, inside the axis or across the axis.

  • Specify the starting point - where the first tick mark is drawn - as well as the tick mark interval, which correlates to their frequency.
