Property Value

Type Default Description
Int32 11

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


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

On the image below MajorTickCount = 6, which generated 6 major tickmarks: for 0, 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 values.


This means, for example, if the LinearScale.MinValue is set to 0 and LinearScale.MaxValue is set to 10 and you want to show a major tickmark (and a label) for each integer value, you should set the MajorTickCount property to 11.


Note also that if you don’t need to show the first or the last major tickmark, or both - you can hide them by setting the ShowFirst and ShowLast properties of the LinearScale.MajorTickmark object to false.
