Public Property MajorTickCount As Integer

Property Value

Type Default Description


An integer value that defines the total number of major tickmarks.


Use the MajorTickCount and ArcScale.MinorTickCount properties to specify the number of tickmarks shown on a circular scale. The appearance of major and minor tickmarks is specified by the ArcScale.MajorTickmark and ArcScale.MinorTickmark properties, correspondingly.

In the image below, MajorTickCount = 11, which generated 11 major tickmarks: for the 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100 values.


This means, for example, if the ArcScale.MinValue is set to 0 and ArcScale.MaxValue is set to 12 and you want to show a major tickmark (and a label) for each integer value, you should set the MajorTickCount property to 13.


Also note that if you don't need to show the first or the last major tickmarks, or both - you can hide them by setting the ShowFirst and ShowLast properties of the ArcScale.MajorTickmark object to false.
