Class Description

 This class manages histogram axis. It is referenced by TH1 and TGraph.
 To make a graphical representation of an histogram axis, this class
 references the TGaxis class.

 TAxis supports axis with fixed or variable bin sizes.
 Labels may be associated to individual bins.

    see examples of various axis representations drawn by class TGaxis.

TAxis(): TNamed(), TAttAxis()

TAxis(Int_t nbins,Axis_t xlow,Axis_t xup): TNamed(), TAttAxis()
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Axis constructor for axis with fix bin size*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

*-*            ======================================


TAxis(const TAxis &axis) : TNamed(axis), TAttAxis(axis)

void CenterLabels(Bool_t center)
   if center = kTRUE axis labels will be centered (hori axes only)
   on the bin center
   default is to center on the primary tick marks
   This option does not make sense if there are more bins than tick marks

Bool_t GetCenterLabels() const
 Return kTRUE if kCenterLabels bit is set, kFALSE otherwise.

void CenterTitle(Bool_t center)
   if center = kTRUE axis title will be centered
   default is right adjusted

Bool_t GetCenterTitle() const
 Return kTRUE if kCenterTitle bit is set, kFALSE otherwise.

const char* ChooseTimeFormat(Double_t axislength)
 Choose a reasonable time format from the coordinates in the active pad
 and the number of divisions in this axis
 If orientation = "X", the horizontal axis of the pad will be used for ref.
 If orientation = "Y", the vertical axis of the pad will be used for ref.

void Copy(TObject &obj) const
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Copy axis structure to another axis-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*                ===================================

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Execute action corresponding to one event*-*-*-*
*-*                  =========================================
  This member function is called when an axis is clicked with the locator

  The axis range is set between the position where the mouse is pressed
  and the position where it is released.
  If the mouse position is outside the current axis range when it is released
  the axis is unzoomed with the corresponding proportions.
  Note that the mouse does not need to be in the pad or even canvas
  when it is released.

void SetDefaults()
 Set axis default values (from TStyle)

Bool_t GetDecimals() const
 Returns kTRUE if kDecimals bit is set, kFALSE otherwise.
 see TAxis::SetDecimals

void SetDecimals(Bool_t dot)
 Set the Decimals flag
 By default, blank characters are stripped, and then the
 label is correctly aligned. The dot, if last character of the string,
 is also stripped, unless this option is specified.
 One can disable the option by calling axis.SetDecimals(kTRUE).
 The flag (in fBits2) is passed to the drawing function TGaxis::PaintAxis

void SetBinLabel(Int_t bin, const char *label)
 Set label for bin

void SetLimits(Axis_t xmin, Axis_t xmax)
          Set the axis limits

Bool_t GetMoreLogLabels() const
 Return kTRUE if kMoreLogLabels bit is set, kFALSE otherwise.

void SetMoreLogLabels(Bool_t more)
 Set the kMoreLogLabels bit flag
 When this option is selected more labels are drawn when in log scale
 and there is a small number of decades  (<3).
 The flag (in fBits) is passed to the drawing function TGaxis::PaintAxis

Bool_t GetNoExponent() const
 Returns kTRUE if kNoExponent bit is set, kFALSE otherwise.
 see TAxis::SetNoExponent

void SetNoExponent(Bool_t noExponent)
 Set the NoExponent flag
 By default, an exponent of the form 10^N is used when the label values
 are either all very small or very large.
 One can disable the exponent by calling axis.SetNoExponent(kTRUE).
 The flag (in fBits) is passed to the drawing function TGaxis::PaintAxis

void SetRange(Int_t first, Int_t last)
  Set the viewing range for the axis from bin first to last
  To set a range using the axis coordinates, use TAxis::SetRangeUser.

void SetRangeUser(Axis_t ufirst, Axis_t ulast)
  Set the viewing range for the axis from ufirst to ulast (in user coordinates)
  To set a range using the axis bin numbers, use TAxis::SetRange.

void SetTicks(Option_t *option)
  set ticks orientation
  option = "+"  ticks drawn on the "positive side" (default)
  option = "-"  ticks drawn on the "negative side"
  option = "+-" ticks drawn on both sides

void SetTimeFormat(const char *tformat)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Change the format used for time plotting *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*                  ========================================
  The format string for date and time use the same options as the one used
  in the standard strftime C function, i.e. :
    for date :
      %a abbreviated weekday name
      %b abbreviated month name
      %d day of the month (01-31)
      %m month (01-12)
      %y year without century

    for time :
      %H hour (24-hour clock)
      %I hour (12-hour clock)
      %p local equivalent of AM or PM
      %M minute (00-59)
      %S seconds (00-61)
      %% %

    This function allows also to define the time offset. It is done via %F
    which should be appended at the end of the format string. The time
    offset has the following format: 'yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss'

          h = new TH1F("Test","h",3000,0.,200000.);
          h->GetXaxis()->SetTimeFormat("%d\/%m\/%y%F2000-02-28 13:00:01");

    This defines the time format being "dd/mm/yy" and the time offset as the
    February 28th 2003 at 13:00:01

    If %F is not specified, the time offset used will be the one defined by:
    gStyle->SetTimeOffset. For example like that:

          TDatime da(2003,02,28,12,00,00);

void SetTimeOffset(Double_t toffset, Option_t *option)
 Change the time offset
 If option = "gmt" the time offset is treated as a GMT time.

void Streamer(TBuffer &R__b)
 Stream an object of class TAxis.

void UnZoom()
 Reset first & last bin to the full range
