Give this a try: <<Graphics`Colors` I just load the above package to avoid having to use the RGBColor[1,0,0] form for the different colors. I took the liberty of showing how to dash the grids as well as change the colors. Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, GridLines -> {{Automatic, {Dashing[{0.05, 0.05}], Yellow}}, {Automatic, {Dashing[{0.1, 0.1}], Green}}}]; I have noted at least one buggy behavior. The color only works with the Automatic option. Without the color and dashing one can specify specifically where to put the grids (similar to Ticks) with a list such at: GridLines ->{{0,Pi,2 Pi,3 Pi},{-1,-0.5,0,0.5,1}} Which works fine. But I could not get Mathematica to do the user-defined grid and colors. Maybe someone else out there knows how. Adam Smith Steve Gray wrote: > 1.
