  • Last Updated : 03 Jun, 2020

Matplotlib is a library in Python and it is numerical – mathematical extension for NumPy library. It is an amazing visualization library in Python for 2D plots of arrays and used for working with the broader SciPy stack.

matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_majorticklines() Function

The Axis.get_majorticklines() function in axis module of matplotlib library is used to get a major tick lines as a list of Line2D instances.

Syntax: Axis.get_majorticklines(self) 



Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameter. 
 

Return value: This method returns the major tick lines as a list of Line2D instances 

Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_majorticklines() function in matplotlib.axis:

Example 1:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
from matplotlib.axis import Axis  
from matplotlib.artist import Artist 
from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d   
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt   
         
fig, ax = plt.subplots()   
         
def tellme(s):   
    ax.set_title(s, fontsize = 16)   
    fig.canvas.draw()  
    renderer = fig.canvas.renderer  
    Artist.draw(ax, renderer)  
       
tellme("Matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_majorticklines()\n\
Function Example")
ax.grid()
  
print("Value of get_majorticklines() :")
for i in ax.xaxis.get_majorticklines():
    print(i)
      
plt.show()

Output: 
 

 

Value of get_majorticklines() :
Line2D((0,0))
Line2D()
Line2D((0.2,0))
Line2D()
Line2D((0.4,0))
Line2D()
Line2D((0.6,0))
Line2D()
Line2D((0.8,0))
Line2D()
Line2D((1,0))
Line2D()

Example 2:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
from matplotlib.axis import Axis  
from matplotlib.artist import Artist 
from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d   
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt   
         
      
fig = plt.figure()   
ax = fig.add_subplot(111, projection ='3d')   
         
X, Y, Z = axes3d.get_test_data(0.1)   
ax.plot_wireframe(X, Y, Z, rstride = 5,    
                  cstride = 5)   
         
  
ax.view_init(30, 50)  
fig.canvas.draw()  
renderer = fig.canvas.renderer  
Artist.draw(ax, renderer)   
  
fig.suptitle('Matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_majorticklines()\n\
Function Example')  
ax.grid()
  
print("Value of get_majorticklines() :")
for i in ax.xaxis.get_majorticklines():
    print(i)
      
plt.show()

Output:
