Calling Sequence

      timeaxis, [t]


      t = optional array of seconds after midnight. in

Keyword Parameters


        JD=jd Set Julian Day number of reference date.
        FORM=f Set axis label format string, over-rides default.
          do help,dt_tm_mak(/help) to get formats.
          For multi-line labels use @ as line delimiter.
        NTICKS=n Set approximate number of desired ticks (def=6).
        TITLE=txt Time axis title (def=none).
        TRANGE=[tmin,tmax] Set specified time range.
        YVALUE=Y Y coordinate of time axis (def=bottom).
        TICKLEN=t Set tick length as % of yrange (def=5).
        /NOLABELS means suppress tick labels.
        /NOYEAR drops year from automatically formatted labels.
          Doesn't apply to user specified formats.
        LABELOFFSET=off Set label Y offset as % yrange (def=0).
          Allows label vertical position adjustment.
        DY=d Set line spacing factor for multiline labels (def=1).
        COLOR=c Axis color.
        CHARSIZE=s Axis text size.
        CHARTHICK=cth thickness of label text (def=1).
        THICK=thk thickness of axes and ticks (def=1).
        MAJOR=g Linestyle for an optional major tick grid.
        MINOR=g2 Linestyle for an optional minor tick grid.
        TMAJOR=tmaj Returned seconds after JD of major ticks.
        TMINOR=tmin Returned seconds after JD of minor ticks.


Common Blocks


      Notes: To use do the following:
        plot, t, y, xstyle=4
        If no arguments are given to TIMEAXIS then an
        axis will be drawn based on the last plot, if any.
        Try DY=1.5 for PS fonts.
