Ticks for the y-axis

### yticks(ticks)

• The argument ticks is a vector of tick numbers.
• This switches to manual mode, and sets the tick values.
• If ticks is empty, it will show no ticks.
• ticks should not contain Inf and NaN values.

### ticks = yticks

• It returns current tick values.

### yticks('auto')

• It switches to auto mode, and ticks are generated automatically.

### yticks('manual')

• It switches to manual mode.

### yticks('mode')

• It returns the current mode, which is either 'auto' or 'manual'.

Note

• If the hold state is off, execution of the next plot or surf function will reset it to auto mode; otherwise, the mode remains unchanged.
• Touch interactions do not change the mode.
• If it is in manual mode, touch interactions do not change the tick values; otherwise, tick values are generated automatically.
