Ticks Size

Hi

How do I make the tick size bigger as in thicker/bolder?

matplotlib.rc(‘ytick.major’, size=5) makes it longer but ‘not’ thicker.

I[1]: plt.plot(range(100))
O[1]: [<matplotlib.lines.Line2D object at 0xb84f8ec>]

I[2]: xticks = getp(gca(), 'xticklines')

I[3]: xgrids = getp(gca(), 'xgridlines')

I[4]: setp(xgrids, linewidth=2)
O[4]: [None, None, None, None, None, None]

I[5]: setp(xticks, linewidth=5)
O[55]: [None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None, None]

This should be the solution. However xgrids are finely set to a bigger
linewidth whereas xticks doesn't change.

I[6]: xticks
O[6]: <a list of 12 Text xtickline objects>

I[6]: xgrids
O[6]: <a list of 6 Line2D xgridline objects>

I[7]: xticks[0]
O[7]: <matplotlib.lines.Line2D object at 0xb8b560c>

I[8]: xgrids[1]
O[8]: <matplotlib.lines.Line2D object at 0xb8626ec>

Interestingly xticks is returned as a list of Text objects, while each
element of this list looks like a Line2D (which really supposed to
be.)

Can you try these on your side?

setp(xticks, markeredgewidth=4)

Ticks are markers.

Good catch. Thanks for the fix.
