String

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

Major ticks divide an axis into segments, thus improving the viewer's perception of visualized data. Major ticks are generated automatically, unless the tickInterval option is set.

If the axis displays numbers, assign a number to this option. If the axis displays date-time values, assign one of the accepted string values or an object to this option. The object should contain one or several fields described in this section, for example:

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

When you use an axis of the "logarithmic" type, ticks are generated on a base of powers. 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 becomes 2, ticks are generated at 10-1, 101, 103, etc.

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