Specifies the interval between major ticks. Does not apply to discrete axes.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined
Accepted Values: 'day' | 'hour' | 'millisecond' | 'minute' | 'month' | 'quarter' | 'second' | 'week' | 'year'

If the axis displays numbers, set the tickInterval to a number. This number should fall into a range of 0 to 1 for a full-stacked series. For example, a tickInterval of 0.2 places a tick every 20%. If the axis displays date-time values, set the tickInterval to an accepted string value or object that contains one of the fields described in this section, for example:

##### jQuery
JavaScript
```\$(function() {
\$("#chartContainer").dxChart({
// ...
valueAxis: {
// ...
tickInterval: { days: 5 }
}
});
});```
##### Angular
HTML
TypeScript
```<dx-chart ... >
<dxi-value-axis ... >
<dxo-tick-interval [days]="5"></dxo-tick-interval>
</dxi-value-axis>
</dx-chart>```
```import { DxChartModule } from "devextreme-angular";
// ...
export class AppComponent {
// ...
}
@NgModule({
imports: [
// ...
DxChartModule
],
// ...
})```

When you use a "logarithmic" type axis, ticks are generated as an exponentiation. For example, assuming that the logarithm base is 10 and the tick interval is 1, ticks are generated at 10-2, 10-1, 100, 101, 102, 103, etc. If the tick interval is 2, ticks are generated at 10-1, 101, 103, etc.

When using the widget as an ASP.NET MVC Control, you can specify this option with the `VizTimeInterval` enum which accepts the same predefined values, but they start with an upper-case letter, for example, 'day' becomes `Day`.
