timetick - legacy
Updated 4 Dec 2019
This was sweet in its time, but has now been superseded by much nicer capabilities built into MATLAB: datetime (R2014b) and datetime ruler (R2016b). I strongly suggest you use them instead!
TIMETICK sets current axes to time formatted tick labels. X Axis must be time, in datenum format.
TIMETICK(AX) sets axes with handle AX to time formatted tick labels.
TIMETICK(AX,precision) sets axes with handle AX to time formatted tick labels with precision values to the right of the decimal for seconds specifier.
Use TIMETICK instead of DATETICK when you want fractional second precision. Unlike DATETICK, TIMETICK works well with ZOOM.

Pointed out that you are better off using datetime (14b) and datetime ruler (16b)

Bug fix: No longer displays a trailing period when displaying time of second resolution (as opposed to fractional second).
Before: "12:24:31." Now: "12:24:31" with no trailing period. Thanks to Alex Fay for identifying and fixing the bug.
