# How to hide ticks label in Python but keep the ticks in place?

MatplotlibPythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To hide ticks label and keep the ticks in place, we can take the following steps −

• Initialize x1 and x10 variables to get the x and y points, using numpy.

• Plot points x and y using the plot() method.

• Using xticks method, get or set the current tick locations and labels of the X-axis. Pass no arguments to return the current values without modifying them. So, pass the range(x1, x10) to get ticks but pass an empty list to hide the labels.

• To display the figure, use the show() method.

## Example

import numpy as np
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.50, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True
x1 = 1
x10 = 10
x = np.linspace(1, 10, 100)
y = np.log(x)
plt.plot(x, y)
plt.xticks(ticks=range(x1, x10), labels=[])
plt.show()
