Detailed Description

QwtDial class provides a rounded range control.

QwtDial is intended as base class for dial widgets like speedometers, compass widgets, clocks ...

A dial contains a scale and a needle indicating the current value of the dial. Depending on Mode one of them is fixed and the other is rotating. If not isReadOnly() the dial can be rotated by dragging the mouse or using keyboard inputs (see QwtAbstractSlider::keyPressEvent()). A dial might be wrapping, what means a rotation below/above one limit continues on the other limit (f.e compass). The scale might cover any arc of the dial, its values are related to the origin() of the dial.

Often dials have to be updated very often according to values from external devices. For these high refresh rates QwtDial caches as much as possible. For derived classes it might be necessary to clear these caches manually according to attribute changes using invalidateCache().

Note:

The controls and dials examples shows different types of dials.

QDial is more similar to QwtKnob than to QwtDial

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum QwtDial::Mode

Mode controlling whether the needle or the scale is rotating.

Enumerator

RotateNeedle
The needle is rotating.
RotateScale
The needle is fixed, the scales are rotating.

enum QwtDial::Shadow

Frame shadow. Unfortunately it is not possible to use QFrame::Shadow as a property of a widget that is not derived from QFrame. The following enum is made for the designer only. It is safe to use QFrame::Shadow instead.

Enumerator

Plain
QFrame::Plain.
Raised
QFrame::Raised.
Sunken
QFrame::Sunken.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

QwtDial::QwtDial (QWidget *parent = NULL) [explicit]

Constructor.

Parameters:

parent Parent widget

Create a dial widget with no needle. The scale is initialized to [ 0.0, 360.0 ] and 360 steps ( QwtAbstractSlider::setTotalSteps() ). The origin of the scale is at 90°,

The value is set to 0.0.

The default mode is QwtDial::RotateNeedle.
