# Decimal precision of xticks after zoom in plot plotly

Iβm working on a project i need to plot a line chart.
code is below

``````import plotly.graph_objects as go
import numpy as np

fig = go.Figure()

# Example data
x = np.arange(0,58)
y = np.random.random_integers(0,10,58)

fig.show()
``````

Issue is when i zoom in plot itβs xticks decimal points varies as shown in figures

decimal points like 19.6 , 19,65 , 19.7 ,19.75 ,19.8 ,19.85 ,19.9
but i need same decimal precision like 19.60, 19.65, 19.70,19.75 ,19.80 ,19.85 ,19.90

I have used `tickformat='.2f'` but it stops zooming and bound xticks to two decimal points

I need more zoom in with same decimal precision

ticks should like 19.690, 19.695, 19.700, 19.705, 19.710

and same for more zoom in

If someone can help iβll be very thankful

As far as I know, you need to use `tickformatstops`.
With this attribute, you can define certain `tickformat` value for certain `dtickrange`.

``````import plotly.graph_objects as go
import numpy as np

fig = go.Figure()

# Example data
x = np.arange(0,58)
y = np.random.random_integers(0,10,58)

# define tickformat for certain dtickrange
fig.update_xaxes(tickformatstops = [
{'dtickrange':[0, 0.009], 'value': ".4f"},
{'dtickrange':[0.009,0.09], 'value': ".3f"},
{'dtickrange':[0.09,0.9], 'value': ".2f"}
])
fig.show()

``````

Hope this help.
