Detailed Description

The Knob Widget.

The QwtKnob widget imitates look and behavior of a volume knob on a radio. It looks similar to QDial - not to QwtDial.

The value range of a knob might be divided into several turns.

The layout of the knob depends on the knobWidth().

width > 0 The diameter of the knob is fixed and the knob is aligned according to the alignment() flags inside of the contentsRect().
width <= 0 The knob is extended to the minimum of width/height of the contentsRect() and aligned in the other direction according to alignment().

Setting a fixed knobWidth() is helpful to align several knobs with different scale labels.


 

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum QwtKnob::KnobStyle

Style of the knob surface. Depending on the KnobStyle the surface of the knob is filled from the brushes of the widget palette().

See Also:

setKnobStyle(), knobStyle()

Enumerator

Flat
Fill the knob with a brush from QPalette::Button.
Raised
Build a gradient from QPalette::Midlight and QPalette::Button.
Sunken
Build a gradient from QPalette::Midlight, QPalette::Button and QPalette::Midlight
Styled
Build a radial gradient from QPalette::Button like it is used for QDial in various Qt styles.

enum QwtKnob::MarkerStyle

Marker type. The marker indicates the current value on the knob The default setting is a Notch marker.

See Also:

setMarkerStyle(), setMarkerSize()

Enumerator

NoMarker
Don't paint any marker.
Tick
Paint a single tick in QPalette::ButtonText color.
Triangle
Paint a triangle in QPalette::ButtonText color.
Dot
Paint a circle in QPalette::ButtonText color.
Nub
Draw a raised ellipse with a gradient build from QPalette::Light and QPalette::Mid
Notch
Draw a sunken ellipse with a gradient build from QPalette::Light and QPalette::Mid

True,when pos is inside the circle of the knob.

See Also:

scrolledTo()

Implements QwtAbstractSlider.

QRect QwtKnob::knobRect () const

Calculate the bounding rectangle of the knob without the scale

Returns:

Bounding rectangle of the knob

When the total angle is below 360° numTurns() is ceiled to 1.

See Also:

setNumTurns(), setTotalAngle(), totalAngle()

void QwtKnob::paintEvent (QPaintEvent *event) [protected], [virtual]

Repaint the knob

Parameters:

event Paint event

const QwtRoundScaleDraw * QwtKnob::scaleDraw () const

Returns:

the scale draw of the knob

See Also:

setScaleDraw()

Determine the value for a new position of the mouse.

Parameters:

pos Mouse position

Returns:

Value for the mouse position

See Also:

isScrollPosition()

Implements QwtAbstractSlider.

void QwtKnob::setAlignment (Qt::Alignmentalignment)

Set the alignment of the knob. Similar to a QLabel::alignment() the flags decide how to align the knob inside of contentsRect().

The default setting is Qt::AlignCenter

Parameters:

alignment Or'd alignment flags

See Also:

alignment(), setKnobWidth(), knobRect()

void QwtKnob::setBorderWidth (intborderWidth)

Set the knob's border width.

Parameters:

borderWidth new border width

void QwtKnob::setKnobStyle (KnobStyleknobStyle)

Set the knob type.

Parameters:

knobStyle Knob type

See Also:

knobStyle(), setBorderWidth()

void QwtKnob::setKnobWidth (intwidth)

Change the knob's width. Setting a fixed value for the diameter of the knob is helpful for aligning several knobs in a row.

Parameters:

width New width

See Also:

knobWidth(), setAlignment()

Note:

Modifies the sizePolicy()

void QwtKnob::setMarkerSize (intsize)

Set the size of the marker. When setting a size <= 0 the marker will automatically scaled to 40% of the radius of the knob.

See Also:

markerSize(), markerStyle()

void QwtKnob::setMarkerStyle (MarkerStylemarkerStyle)

Set the marker type of the knob.

Parameters:

markerStyle Marker type

See Also:

markerStyle(), setMarkerSize()

void QwtKnob::setNumTurns (intnumTurns)

Set the number of turns. When numTurns > 1 the knob can be turned several times around its axis

otherwise the total angle is floored to 360°.

See Also:

numTurns(), totalAngle(), setTotalAngle()

void QwtKnob::setScaleDraw (QwtRoundScaleDraw *scaleDraw)

Change the scale draw of the knob

For changing the labels of the scales, it is necessary to derive from QwtRoundScaleDraw and overload QwtRoundScaleDraw::label().

See Also:

scaleDraw()

void QwtKnob::setTotalAngle (doubleangle)

Set the total angle by which the knob can be turned.

Parameters:

angle Angle in degrees.

The angle has to be between [10, 360] degrees. Angles above 360 ( so that the knob can be turned several times around its axis ) have to be set using setNumTurns().

The default angle is 270 degrees.

See Also:

totalAngle(), setNumTurns()

QSize QwtKnob::sizeHint () const [virtual]

Returns:

sizeHint()

double QwtKnob::totalAngle () const

Returns:

the total angle

See Also:

setTotalAngle(), setNumTurns(), numTurns()
