grAxis objects in Graph controls


The MinorDivisions property specifies the number of spaces between major ticks. To see minor ticks, specify a value of two or greater because the last minor tick is overlaid by the next major tick.

The default value of 0 in the MajorDivisions field means the graph uses a MajorDivision value optimized for the data and suppresses MinorDivision ticks.


In a painter

To specify the number of minor divisions on an axis:

  1. Display the Axis tab page from the graph's Properties view and select the desired axis from the Axis drop-down list.

  2. Use the spin control in the MinorDivisions field of the Minor Divisions group to specify the desired number of divisions.

In scripts

The MinorDivisions property takes an integer specifying the number of minor divisions on an axis.

The following example sets 10 ticks on the minor grid of the Values axis of a graph.

gr_1.Values.MinorDivisions = 10
