Detailed Description

A abstract base class for drawing scales.

QwtAbstractScaleDraw can be used to draw linear or logarithmic scales.

After a scale division has been specified as a QwtScaleDiv object using setScaleDiv(), the scale can be drawn with the draw() member.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

QwtAbstractScaleDraw::QwtAbstractScaleDraw ()

Constructor. The range of the scale is initialized to [0, 100], The spacing (distance between ticks and labels) is set to 4, the tick lengths are set to 4,6 and 8 pixels

Member Function Documentation

void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::draw (QPainter *painter, const QPalette &palette) const [virtual]

Draw the scale.

Parameters:

painter The painter
palette Palette, text color is used for the labels, foreground color for ticks and backbone

virtual void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::drawBackbone (QPainter *painter) const [protected], [pure virtual]

Draws the baseline of the scale

Parameters:

painter Painter

See Also:

drawTick(), drawLabel()

Implemented in QwtScaleDraw, and QwtRoundScaleDraw.

virtual void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::drawLabel (QPainter *painter, doublevalue) const [protected], [pure virtual]

Draws the label for a major scale tick

Parameters:

painter Painter
value Value

See Also:

drawTick(), drawBackbone()

Implemented in QwtScaleDraw, and QwtRoundScaleDraw.

virtual void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::drawTick (QPainter *painter, doublevalue, doublelen) const [protected], [pure virtual]

Draw a tick

Parameters:

painter Painter
value Value of the tick
len Length of the tick

See Also:

drawBackbone(), drawLabel()

Implemented in QwtScaleDraw, and QwtRoundScaleDraw.

void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::enableComponent (ScaleComponentcomponent, boolenable = true)

En/Disable a component of the scale

Parameters:

component Scale component
enable On/Off

See Also:

hasComponent()

virtual double QwtAbstractScaleDraw::extent (const QFont &font) const [pure virtual]

Calculate the extent

The extent is the distance from the baseline to the outermost pixel of the scale draw in opposite to its orientation. It is at least minimumExtent() pixels.

Parameters:

font Font used for drawing the tick labels

Returns:

Number of pixels

See Also:

setMinimumExtent(), minimumExtent()

Implemented in QwtScaleDraw, and QwtRoundScaleDraw.

bool QwtAbstractScaleDraw::hasComponent (ScaleComponentcomponent) const

Check if a component is enabled

Parameters:

component Component type

Returns:

true, when component is enabled

See Also:

enableComponent()

void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::invalidateCache () [protected]

Invalidate the cache used by tickLabel()

The cache is invalidated, when a new QwtScaleDiv is set. If the labels need to be changed. while the same QwtScaleDiv is set, invalidateCache() needs to be called manually.

QwtText QwtAbstractScaleDraw::label (doublevalue) const [virtual]

Convert a value into its representing label. The value is converted to a plain text using QLocale().toString(value). This method is often overloaded by applications to have individual labels.

Parameters:

value Value

Returns:

Label string.

Reimplemented in QwtDateScaleDraw, and QwtCompassScaleDraw.

double QwtAbstractScaleDraw::maxTickLength () const

Returns:

Length of the longest tick

Useful for layout calculations

See Also:

tickLength(), setTickLength()

double QwtAbstractScaleDraw::minimumExtent () const

Get the minimum extent

Returns:

Minimum extent

See Also:

extent(), setMinimumExtent()

int QwtAbstractScaleDraw::penWidth () const

Returns:

Scale pen width

See Also:

setPenWidth()

const QwtScaleDiv & QwtAbstractScaleDraw::scaleDiv () const

Returns:

scale division

const QwtScaleMap & QwtAbstractScaleDraw::scaleMap () const

Returns:

Map how to translate between scale and pixel values

QwtScaleMap & QwtAbstractScaleDraw::scaleMap ()

Returns:

Map how to translate between scale and pixel values

void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::setMinimumExtent (doubleminExtent)

Set a minimum for the extent. The extent is calculated from the components of the scale draw. In situations, where the labels are changing and the layout depends on the extent (f.e scrolling a scale), setting an upper limit as minimum extent will avoid jumps of the layout.

Parameters:

minExtent Minimum extent

See Also:

extent(), minimumExtent()

void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::setPenWidth (intwidth)

Specify the width of the scale pen.

Parameters:

width Pen width

See Also:

penWidth()

void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::setScaleDiv (const QwtScaleDiv &scaleDiv)

Change the scale division

Parameters:

scaleDiv New scale division

void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::setSpacing (doublespacing)

Set the spacing between tick and labels. The spacing is the distance between ticks and labels. The default spacing is 4 pixels.

Parameters:

spacing Spacing

See Also:

spacing()

void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::setTickLength (QwtScaleDiv::TickTypetickType, doublelength)

Set the length of the ticks

Parameters:

tickType Tick type
length New length

Warning:

the length is limited to [0..1000]

void QwtAbstractScaleDraw::setTransformation (QwtTransform *transformation)

Change the transformation of the scale

Parameters:

transformation New scale transformation

double QwtAbstractScaleDraw::spacing () const

Get the spacing. The spacing is the distance between ticks and labels. The default spacing is 4 pixels.

Returns:

Spacing

See Also:

setSpacing()

const QwtText & QwtAbstractScaleDraw::tickLabel (const QFont &font, doublevalue) const [protected]

Convert a value into its representing label and cache it. The conversion between value and label is called very often in the layout and painting code. Unfortunately the calculation of the label sizes might be slow (really slow for rich text in Qt4), so it's necessary to cache the labels.

Parameters:

font Font
value Value

Returns:

Tick label

double QwtAbstractScaleDraw::tickLength (QwtScaleDiv::TickTypetickType) const

Returns:

Length of the ticks

See Also:

setTickLength(), maxTickLength()
