Detailed Description

An abstract base class for widgets having a scale.

The scale of an QwtAbstractScale is determined by a QwtScaleDiv definition, that contains the boundaries and the ticks of the scale. The scale is painted using a QwtScaleDraw object.

The scale division might be assigned explicitly - but usually it is calculated from the boundaries using a QwtScaleEngine.

The scale engine also decides the type of transformation of the scale ( linear, logarithmic ... ).

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

QwtAbstractScale::QwtAbstractScale (QWidget *parent = NULL)

Constructor

Parameters:

parent Parent widget

Creates a default QwtScaleDraw and a QwtLinearScaleEngine. The initial scale boundaries are set to [ 0.0, 100.0 ]

The scaleStepSize() is initialized to 0.0, scaleMaxMajor() to 5 and scaleMaxMajor to 3.

double QwtAbstractScale::invTransform (intvalue) const

Translate a widget coordinate into a scale value

Parameters:

value Widget coordinate

Returns:

Corresponding scale coordinate for value

See Also:

scaleMap(), transform()

bool QwtAbstractScale::isInverted () const

Returns:

True, when the scale is increasing in opposite direction to the widget coordinates

double QwtAbstractScale::lowerBound () const

Returns:

Lower bound of the scale

See Also:

setLowerBound(), setScale(), upperBound()

double QwtAbstractScale::maximum () const

Returns:

The boundary with the larger value

See Also:

minimum(), lowerBound(), upperBound()

double QwtAbstractScale::minimum () const

Returns:

The boundary with the smaller value

See Also:

maximum(), lowerBound(), upperBound()

void QwtAbstractScale::rescale (doublelowerBound, doubleupperBound, doublestepSize) [protected]

Recalculate the scale division and update the scale.

Parameters:

lowerBound Lower limit of the scale interval
upperBound Upper limit of the scale interval
stepSize Major step size

See Also:

scaleChange()

const QwtScaleDiv & QwtAbstractScale::scaleDiv () const

Returns:

Scale boundaries and positions of the ticks

The scale division might have been assigned explicitly or calculated implicitly by rescale().

const QwtScaleEngine * QwtAbstractScale::scaleEngine () const

Returns:

Scale engine

See Also:

setScaleEngine()

QwtScaleEngine * QwtAbstractScale::scaleEngine ()

Returns:

Scale engine

See Also:

setScaleEngine()

const QwtScaleMap & QwtAbstractScale::scaleMap () const

Returns:

Map to translate between scale and widget coordinates

int QwtAbstractScale::scaleMaxMajor () const

Returns:

Maximal number of major tick intervals

See Also:

setScaleMaxMajor(), scaleMaxMinor()

int QwtAbstractScale::scaleMaxMinor () const

Returns:

Maximal number of minor tick intervals

See Also:

setScaleMaxMinor(), scaleMaxMajor()

double QwtAbstractScale::scaleStepSize () const

Returns:

Hint for the step size of the scale

See Also:

setScaleStepSize(), QwtScaleEngine::divideScale()

void QwtAbstractScale::setAbstractScaleDraw (QwtAbstractScaleDraw *scaleDraw) [protected]

Set a scale draw. scaleDraw has to be created with new and will be deleted in the destructor or the next call of setAbstractScaleDraw().

See Also:

abstractScaleDraw()

void QwtAbstractScale::setLowerBound (doublevalue)

Set the lower bound of the scale

Parameters:

value Lower bound

See Also:

lowerBound(), setScale(), setUpperBound()

Note:

For inverted scales the lower bound is greater than the upper bound

void QwtAbstractScale::setScale (doublelowerBound, doubleupperBound)

Specify a scale. Define a scale by an interval

The ticks are calculated using scaleMaxMinor(), scaleMaxMajor() and scaleStepSize().

Parameters:

lowerBound lower limit of the scale interval
upperBound upper limit of the scale interval

Note:

For inverted scales the lower bound is greater than the upper bound

void QwtAbstractScale::setScale (const QwtInterval &interval)

Specify a scale. Define a scale by an interval

The ticks are calculated using scaleMaxMinor(), scaleMaxMajor() and scaleStepSize().

Parameters:

interval Interval

void QwtAbstractScale::setScale (const QwtScaleDiv &scaleDiv)

Specify a scale. scaleMaxMinor(), scaleMaxMajor() and scaleStepSize() and have no effect.

Parameters:

scaleDiv Scale division

See Also:

setAutoScale()

void QwtAbstractScale::setScaleEngine (QwtScaleEngine *scaleEngine)

Set a scale engine. The scale engine is responsible for calculating the scale division and provides a transformation between scale and widget coordinates.

scaleEngine has to be created with new and will be deleted in the destructor or the next call of setScaleEngine.

void QwtAbstractScale::setScaleMaxMajor (intticks)

Set the maximum number of major tick intervals. The scale's major ticks are calculated automatically such that the number of major intervals does not exceed ticks.

The default value is 5.

Parameters:

ticks Maximal number of major ticks.

See Also:

scaleMaxMajor(), setScaleMaxMinor(), setScaleStepSize(), QwtScaleEngine::divideInterval()

void QwtAbstractScale::setScaleMaxMinor (intticks)

Set the maximum number of minor tick intervals. The scale's minor ticks are calculated automatically such that the number of minor intervals does not exceed ticks. The default value is 3.

Parameters:

ticks Maximal number of minor ticks.

See Also:

scaleMaxMajor(), setScaleMaxMinor(), setScaleStepSize(), QwtScaleEngine::divideInterval()

void QwtAbstractScale::setScaleStepSize (doublestepSize)

Set the step size used for calculating a scale division. The step size is hint for calculating the intervals for the major ticks of the scale. A value of 0.0 is interpreted as no hint.

Parameters:

stepSize Hint for the step size of the scale

See Also:

scaleStepSize(), QwtScaleEngine::divideScale()

Note:

Position and distance between the major ticks also depends on scaleMaxMajor().

void QwtAbstractScale::setUpperBound (doublevalue)

Set the upper bound of the scale

Parameters:

value Upper bound

See Also:

upperBound(), setScale(), setLowerBound()

Note:

For inverted scales the lower bound is greater than the upper bound

int QwtAbstractScale::transform (doublevalue) const

Translate a scale value into a widget coordinate

Parameters:

value Scale value

Returns:

Corresponding widget coordinate for value

See Also:

scaleMap(), invTransform()

double QwtAbstractScale::upperBound () const

Returns:

Upper bound of the scale

See Also:

setUpperBound(), setScale(), lowerBound()
