d3.axisLeft( scale )

Parameters: This function accepts only one parameter as mentioned above and described below:

  • scale: This parameter holds the used scale.

Example 1:

HTML




<html>
  
<head>
    <title>
        D3.js d3.axisLeft() Function
    </title>

        src="https://d3js.org/d3.v4.min.js">
    </script>
</head>
  
<body>
    <script>
        var width = 400, height = 400;
        var svg = d3.select("body")
            .append("svg")
            .attr("width", width)
            .attr("height", height);
  
        var yscale = d3.scaleLinear()
            .domain([0, 100])
            .range([height - 50, 0]);
  
        var y_axis = d3.axisLeft(yscale);
  
        svg.append("g")
            .attr("transform", "translate(100, 10)")
            .call(y_axis)
    </script>
</body>
