tick

An object defining the configuration options for axis ticks.

Type:

Object

Ticks divide an axis into equal sections by a step whose value is determined automatically, or by the tickInterval and axisDivisionFactor options of an axis. Ticks improve the readability of charts, but are not visible in the PolarChart widget by default. To set up tick configuration options, define the tick object within the argumentAxis or valueAxis configuration object. To set common options for all ticks in a chart, define the tick object within the commonAxisSettings configuration object. Note that the values that are set for an individual axis override the corresponding common values.

Show Example:
jQuery

In this example, the value axis' ticks are visible, with the color option set to 'blue' and width option set to 2.
