class QwtPlotItem

Detailed Description

A 2-D plotting widget.

QwtPlot is a widget for plotting two-dimensional graphs. An unlimited number of plot items can be displayed on its canvas. Plot items might be curves (QwtPlotCurve), markers (QwtPlotMarker), the grid (QwtPlotGrid), or anything else derived from QwtPlotItem. A plot can have up to four axes, with each plot item attached to an x- and a y axis. The scales at the axes can be explicitly set (QwtScaleDiv), or are calculated from the plot items, using algorithms (QwtScaleEngine) which can be configured separately for each axis.

The simpleplot example is a good starting point to see how to set up a plot widget.

Example

The following example shows (schematically) the most simple way to use QwtPlot. By default, only the left and bottom axes are visible and their scales are computed automatically.

#include <qwt_plot.h>
#include <qwt_plot_curve.h>

QwtPlot *myPlot = new QwtPlot("Two Curves", parent);

// add curves
QwtPlotCurve *curve1 = new QwtPlotCurve("Curve 1");
QwtPlotCurve *curve2 = new QwtPlotCurve("Curve 2");

// connect or copy the data to the curves
curve1->setData(...);
curve2->setData(...);

curve1->attach(myPlot);
curve2->attach(myPlot);

// finally, refresh the plot
myPlot->replot();

QString QwtPlot::grabProperties () const

This method is intended for manipulating the plot widget from a specific editor in the Qwt designer plugin.

Returns:

QString::null

Warning:

The plot editor has never been implemented.

QwtPlotItem * QwtPlot::infoToItem (const QVariant &itemInfo) const [virtual]

Identify the plot item according to an item info object, that has bee generated from itemToInfo(). The default implementation simply tries to unwrap a QwtPlotItem pointer:

if ( itemInfo.canConvert<QwtPlotItem *>() )
    return qvariant_cast<QwtPlotItem *>( itemInfo );


 

Parameters:

itemInfo Plot item

Returns:

A plot item, when successful, otherwise a NULL pointer.

See Also:

itemToInfo()

void QwtPlot::insertLegend (QwtAbstractLegend *legend, QwtPlot::LegendPositionpos = QwtPlot::RightLegend, doubleratio = -1.0)

Insert a legend. If the position legend is QwtPlot::LeftLegend or QwtPlot::RightLegend the legend will be organized in one column from top to down. Otherwise the legend items will be placed in a table with a best fit number of columns from left to right.

insertLegend() will set the plot widget as parent for the legend. The legend will be deleted in the destructor of the plot or when another legend is inserted.

Legends, that are not inserted into the layout of the plot widget need to connect to the legendDataChanged() signal. Calling updateLegend() initiates this signal for an initial update. When the application code wants to implement its own layout this also needs to be done for rendering plots to a document ( see QwtPlotRenderer ).

Parameters:

legend Legend
pos The legend's position. For top/left position the number of columns will be limited to 1, otherwise it will be set to unlimited.
ratio Ratio between legend and the bounding rectangle of title, canvas and axes. The legend will be shrunk if it would need more space than the given ratio. The ratio is limited to ]0.0 .. 1.0]. In case of <= 0.0 it will be reset to the default ratio. The default vertical/horizontal ratio is 0.33/0.5.

See Also:

legend(), QwtPlotLayout::legendPosition(), QwtPlotLayout::setLegendPosition()

double QwtPlot::invTransform (intaxisId, intpos) const

Transform the x or y coordinate of a position in the drawing region into a value.

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
pos position

Returns:

Position as axis coordinate

Warning:

The position can be an x or a y coordinate, depending on the specified axis.

void QwtPlot::itemAttached (QwtPlotItem *plotItem, boolon) [signal]

A signal indicating, that an item has been attached/detached

Parameters:

plotItem Plot item
on Attached/Detached

QVariant QwtPlot::itemToInfo (QwtPlotItem *plotItem) const [virtual]

Build an information, that can be used to identify a plot item on the legend. The default implementation simply wraps the plot item into a QVariant object. When overloading itemToInfo() usually infoToItem() needs to reimplemeted too.

QVariant itemInfo;
qVariantSetValue( itemInfo, plotItem );

Parameters:

plotItem Plot item

Returns:

Plot item embedded in a QVariant

See Also:

infoToItem()

QwtAbstractLegend * QwtPlot::legend ()

the plot's legend

See Also:

insertLegend()

const QwtAbstractLegend * QwtPlot::legend () const

Returns:

the plot's legend

See Also:

insertLegend()

void QwtPlot::legendDataChanged (const QVariant &itemInfo, const QList< QwtLegendData > &data) [signal]

Parameters:

itemInfo Info about a plot item, build from itemToInfo()
data Attributes of the entries ( usually <= 1 ) for the plot item.

See Also:

itemToInfo(), infoToItem(), QwtAbstractLegend::updateLegend()

Returns:

the plot's layout

const QwtPlotLayout * QwtPlot::plotLayout () const

Returns:

the plot's layout

void QwtPlot::replot () [virtual], [slot]

Redraw the plot. If the autoReplot option is not set (which is the default) or if any curves are attached to raw data, the plot has to be refreshed explicitly in order to make changes visible.

See Also:

updateAxes(), setAutoReplot()

void QwtPlot::resizeEvent (QResizeEvent *e) [protected], [virtual]

Resize and update internal layout

Parameters:

e Resize event

void QwtPlot::setAutoReplot (booltf = true)

Set or reset the autoReplot option. If the autoReplot option is set, the plot will be updated implicitly by manipulating member functions. Since this may be time-consuming, it is recommended to leave this option switched off and call replot() explicitly if necessary.

The autoReplot option is set to false by default, which means that the user has to call replot() in order to make changes visible.

Parameters:

tf true or false. Defaults to true.

See Also:

replot()

void QwtPlot::setAxisAutoScale (intaxisId, boolon = true)

Enable autoscaling for a specified axis. This member function is used to switch back to autoscaling mode after a fixed scale has been set. Autoscaling is enabled by default.

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
on On/Off

See Also:

setAxisScale(), setAxisScaleDiv(), updateAxes()

Note:

The autoscaling flag has no effect until updateAxes() is executed ( called by replot() ).

void QwtPlot::setAxisFont (intaxisId, const QFont &font)

Change the font of an axis.

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
font Font

Warning:

This function changes the font of the tick labels, not of the axis title.

void QwtPlot::setAxisLabelAlignment (intaxisId, Qt::Alignmentalignment)

Change the alignment of the tick labels

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
alignment Or'd Qt::AlignmentFlags see <qnamespace.h>

See Also:

QwtScaleDraw::setLabelAlignment()

void QwtPlot::setAxisLabelRotation (intaxisId, doublerotation)

Rotate all tick labels

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
rotation Angle in degrees. When changing the label rotation, the label alignment might be adjusted too.

See Also:

QwtScaleDraw::setLabelRotation(), setAxisLabelAlignment()

void QwtPlot::setAxisMaxMajor (intaxisId, intmaxMajor)

Set the maximum number of major scale intervals for a specified axis

Parameters:

axisId Axis index

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
maxMinor Maximum number of minor steps

See Also:

axisMaxMinor()

void QwtPlot::setAxisScale (intaxisId, doublemin, doublemax, doublestepSize = 0)

Disable autoscaling and specify a fixed scale for a selected axis. In updateAxes() the scale engine calculates a scale division from the specified parameters, that will be assigned to the scale widget. So updates of the scale widget usually happen delayed with the next replot.

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
min Minimum of the scale
max Maximum of the scale
stepSize Major step size. If step == 0, the step size is calculated automatically using the maxMajor setting.

See Also:

setAxisMaxMajor(), setAxisAutoScale(), axisStepSize(), QwtScaleEngine::divideScale()

void QwtPlot::setAxisScaleDiv (intaxisId, const QwtScaleDiv &scaleDiv)

Disable autoscaling and specify a fixed scale for a selected axis. The scale division will be stored locally only until the next call of updateAxes(). So updates of the scale widget usually happen delayed with the next replot.

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
scaleDiv Scale division

See Also:

setAxisScale(), setAxisAutoScale()

void QwtPlot::setAxisScaleDraw (intaxisId, QwtScaleDraw *scaleDraw)

Set a scale draw.

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
scaleDraw Object responsible for drawing scales.

By passing scaleDraw it is possible to extend QwtScaleDraw functionality and let it take place in QwtPlot. Please note that scaleDraw has to be created with new and will be deleted by the corresponding QwtScale member ( like a child object ).

See Also:

QwtScaleDraw, QwtScaleWidget

Warning:

The attributes of scaleDraw will be overwritten by those of the previous QwtScaleDraw.

void QwtPlot::setAxisScaleEngine (intaxisId, QwtScaleEngine *scaleEngine)

Change the scale engine for an axis

Parameters:

Change the title of a specified axis.

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
title Axis title

void QwtPlot::setCanvas (QWidget *canvas)

Set the drawing canvas of the plot widget. QwtPlot invokes methods of the canvas as meta methods ( see QMetaObject ). In opposite to using conventional C++ techniques like virtual methods they allow to use canvas implementations that are derived from QWidget or QGLWidget.

The following meta methods could be implemented:

replot() When the canvas doesn't offer a replot method, QwtPlot calls update() instead.
borderPath() The border path is necessary to clip the content of the canvas When the canvas doesn't have any special border ( f.e rounded corners ) it is o.k. not to implement this method.

The default canvas is a QwtPlotCanvas

Parameters:

canvas Canvas Widget

See Also:

canvas()

void QwtPlot::setCanvasBackground (const QBrush &brush)

Change the background of the plotting area. Sets brush to QPalette::Window of all color groups of the palette of the canvas. Using canvas()->setPalette() is a more powerful way to set these colors.

Parameters:

brush New background brush

See Also:

canvasBackground()

void QwtPlot::setFooter (const QString &text)

Change the text the footer

Parameters:

text New text of the footer

void QwtPlot::setFooter (const QwtText &text)

Change the text the footer

Parameters:

text New text of the footer

void QwtPlot::setPlotLayout (QwtPlotLayout *layout)

Assign a new plot layout.

Parameters:

layout Layout()

See Also:

plotLayout()

void QwtPlot::setTitle (const QString &title)

Change the plot's title

Parameters:

title New title

void QwtPlot::setTitle (const QwtText &title)

Change the plot's title

Parameters:

title New title

Returns:

Title label widget.

const QwtTextLabel * QwtPlot::titleLabel () const

double QwtPlot::transform (intaxisId, doublevalue) const

Transform a value into a coordinate in the plotting region.

Parameters:

axisId Axis index
value value

Returns:

X or Y coordinate in the plotting region corresponding to the value.

void QwtPlot::updateAxes ()

Rebuild the axes scales. In case of autoscaling the boundaries of a scale are calculated from the bounding rectangles of all plot items, having the QwtPlotItem::AutoScale flag enabled ( QwtScaleEngine::autoScale() ). Then a scale division is calculated ( QwtScaleEngine::didvideScale() ) and assigned to scale widget.

When the scale boundaries have been assigned with setAxisScale() a scale division is calculated ( QwtScaleEngine::didvideScale() ) for this interval and assigned to the scale widget.

When the scale has been set explicitly by setAxisScaleDiv() the locally stored scale division gets assigned to the scale widget.

The scale widget indicates modifications by emitting a QwtScaleWidget::scaleDivChanged() signal.

updateAxes() is usually called by replot().

See Also:

setAxisAutoScale(), setAxisScale(), setAxisScaleDiv(), replot() QwtPlotItem::boundingRect()

void QwtPlot::updateCanvasMargins ()

Update the canvas margins. Plot items might indicate, that they need some extra space at the borders of the canvas by the QwtPlotItem::Margins flag.

getCanvasMarginsHint(), QwtPlotItem::getCanvasMarginHint()
