## 5. Working with Basic Options

### Basic Options / Plot

#### PlotRange

 PlotRange is an option for graphics functions that specifies what points to include in a plot. In[1]:= pr = Graphics3D[Stellate[Dodecahedron[]], PlotRange -> {All, {0., 2.}, {-0.7, 0.5}}]; Show[pr]In[2]:= JavaView[pr] Compare with Mathematica

#### AspectRatio

 AspectRatio allows to scale the display in x and y direction, after the image is computed. In[1]:= ar = Graphics3D[Stellate[Dodecahedron[]], AspectRatio -> 0.5] Show[ar]In[2]:= JavaView[ar] Compare with Mathematica

#### PlotLabel

 PlotLabel is an option for graphics functions that specifies an overall label for a plot. In[1]:= pl = Graphics3D[Stellate[Dodecahedron[]], PlotLabel -> "Stellated Dodecahedron"]; Show[pl]In[2]:= JavaView[pl] Compare with Mathematica

### Basic Options / Axes

#### Axes

 Flag for graphics functions if axes are drawn. In[1]:= sa = Graphics3D[Stellate[Dodecahedron[]], Axes -> True]; Show[sa]In[2]:= JavaView[sa] Compare with Mathematica

#### AxesLabel

 Assign axes labels. In[1]:= al = Graphics3D[Stellate[Dodecahedron[]], Axes -> True, AxesLabel -> {"a", "b", "c"}] Show[al]In[2]:= JavaView[al] Compare with Mathematica

#### Ticks

 Specifies position and labels of ticks at axes. In[1]:= tic = Graphics3D[Stellate[Dodecahedron[]], Ticks -> {Automatic, None, {{1.2, "+6/5", {0.05, 0.01}}, {0., "Null"}}}, Axes -> True] Show[tic]In[2]:= JavaView[tic] Compare with Mathematica

#### AxesOrigin

 AxesOrigin is an option for twodimensional graphics functions which specifies where any axes drawn should cross. In[1]:= ao = Plot[4x^2, {x, -1, 1}, AxesOrigin -> {0, 1}] Show[ao]In[2]:= JavaView[ao] Compare with Mathematica

#### AxesStyle

 AxesStyle is an option for graphics functions which specifies how axes should be rendered. In[1]:= as = Graphics3D[Stellate[Dodecahedron[]], Axes -> True, AxesStyle -> {{RGBColor[1, 0, 0], Thickness[0.01]}, {RGBColor[0, 0, 1], Thickness[0.01], Dashing[{0.05, 0.05}]}, {RGBColor[0, 1, 0], Thickness[0.01]}}] Show[as]In[2]:= JavaView[as] Compare with Mathematica
