I wanted to implement a custom delta provider for a numeric axis but there is no way to set the delta provider for the numeric axis. Please advice

Note : I want to change the number of ticks shown based on visible range. My visible range is dynamic.

Hi Vidya,

Well it isn’t possible to replace default delta generation for NumericTickProvider but you can create a custom TickProvider which extends DeltaTickProvider and pass custom IDeltaCalculator implementation via constructor if you want to create totally different algorithm for delta and tick generation:

  class CustomNumericDeltaProvider implements IDeltaCalculator<Double> {

    public IAxisDelta<Double> getDeltaFromRange(Comparable min, Comparable max, int minorsPerMajor, int maxTicks) {
        // implement desired logic here
        return new AxisDelta<>(20d, 100d);

class CustomTickProvider extends DeltaTickProvider<CustomNumericDeltaProvider> {

    CustomTickProvider() {
        super(new CustomNumericDeltaProvider());

    protected void updateTicks(DoubleValues minorTicks, DoubleValues majorTicks) {
        final double minorDelta = currentMinorDelta;
        final double majorDelta = currentMajorDelta;

        final double min = currentVisibleRangeMin;
        final double max = currentVisibleRangeMax;

        // using min and max + minor/majorDelta fill up minor and major ticks collection

xAxis.setTickProvider(new CustomTickProvider());

Is this suitable for your needs?

Best regards,
