Re: labeling time axis

Hi Fan,
Sure. By setting tmXBMode = "Explicit", you can then set the number of
major tick marks (and their corresponding labels) via tmXBValues and
tmXBLabels. Once tmXBMode = "Explicit", you will also have to set
tmXBMinorValues, which defines where the minor tick marks are drawn.

You can then use if statements to set up different scenarios..

The top x-axis tick marks will also be set to whatever you do with the
bottom x-axis tick marks automatically.
Hope that helps! Adam
