I have a regular 2D plot, I would like to put the x-ticks labels on the top of the frame. Is there a simple way of doing this?

Everything I've found so far seems to be very involved. It seems like there ought to be a way to place them similar to the way you can place frame labels on any of the 4 sides of the frame. (A common example are graphs with two y-axes, one scale on the left, and a different scale on the right. In my case I only have one x-axis, but I want it to be on the top, not at the bottom).

Will this work

Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}, Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> {{All, All}, {None, All}}]

Awesome! Thanks! –  okj Aug 22 '13 at 16:54
@okj. You are very welcome. –  Suba Thomas Aug 22 '13 at 17:00
@okj For freaks (like me) who value brevity this form also works: FrameTicks -> {None, None, All, None} or even FrameTicks -> {{}, {}, All, {}} –  Mr.Wizard Aug 22 '13 at 17:06
@Mr.Wizard. Thanks for sharing. I vaguely recall seeing it being used somewhere, but didn't bother to remember it because it is undocumented. So basically both {{left, right}, {bottom, top}} and {bottom, left, top, right} work. –  Suba Thomas Aug 22 '13 at 17:14
