============= =============================================================
text The text (excluding units) to display on the label for this
units The units for this axis. Units should generally be given
without any scaling prefix (eg, 'V' instead of 'mV'). The
scaling prefix will be automatically prepended based on the
range of data displayed.
**args All extra keyword arguments become CSS style options for
the <span> tag which will surround the axis label and units.
============= =============================================================
The final text generated for the label will look like::
<span style="...options...">{text} (prefix{units})</span>
Each extra keyword argument will become a CSS option in the above template.
For example, you can set the font size and color of the label::
labelStyle = {'color': '#FFF', 'font-size': '14pt'}
axis.setLabel('label text', units='V', **labelStyle)

self.labelText = text

Keyword Arguments
name The name to give this Parameter. This is the name that
will appear in the left-most column of a ParameterTree
for this Parameter.
value The value to initially assign to this Parameter.
default The default value for this Parameter (most Parameters
provide an option to 'reset to default').
children A list of children for this Parameter. Children
may be given either as a Parameter instance or as a
dictionary to pass to Parameter.create(). In this way,
it is possible to specify complex hierarchies of
Parameters from a single nested data structure.
readonly If True, the user will not be allowed to edit this
Parameter. (default=False)
enabled If False, any widget(s) for this parameter will appear
disabled. (default=True)
visible If False, the Parameter will not appear when displayed
in a ParameterTree. (default=True)
renamable If True, the user may rename this Parameter.
removable If True, the user may remove this Parameter.
expanded If True, the Parameter will appear expanded when
displayed in a ParameterTree (its children will be
visible). (default=True)
