Grid lines for two- and three-dimensional plots



The grid function turns the current axes' grid lines on and off.

grid on adds major grid lines to the current axes.

grid off removes major and minor grid lines from the current axes.

grid toggles the major grid visibility state.

grid(axes_handle,...) uses the axes specified by axes_handle instead of the current axes.


grid sets the XGrid, YGrid, and ZGrid properties of the axes.

grid minor sets the XMinorGrid, YMinorGrid, and ZMinorGrid properties of the axes.

You can set the grid lines for just one axis using the set command and the individual property. For example,

turns on only x-axis grid lines.

Note that the grid line width is not affected by the axes LineWidth property.
