Position scale, date

Position scale, date

Usage
scale_x_datetime(..., expand = waiver(),
    breaks = pretty_breaks(), minor_breaks = waiver())

scale_y_datetime(..., expand = waiver(), breaks = pretty_breaks(), minor_breaks = waiver())

Arguments
breaks
A vector of breaks, a function that given the scale limits returns a vector of breaks, or a character vector, specifying the width between breaks. For more information about the first two, see continu
minor_breaks
Either NULL for no minor breaks, waiver() for the default breaks (one minor break between each major break), a numeric vector of positions, or a function that given the limits returns a vector of minor breaks.
...
common continuous scale parameters: name, breaks, labels, na.value, limits and trans. See continuous_scale for m
expand
a numeric vector of length two giving multiplicative and additive expansion constants. These constants ensure that the data is placed some distance away from the axes.
