Detailed Description

Canvas of a QwtPlot.

Canvas is the widget where all plot items are displayed

QwtPlot::setCanvas(), QwtPlotGLCanvas

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum QwtPlotCanvas::FocusIndicator

Focus indicator The default setting is NoFocusIndicator.

See Also:

setFocusIndicator(), focusIndicator(), paintFocus()

Enumerator

NoFocusIndicator
Don't paint a focus indicator.
CanvasFocusIndicator
The focus is related to the complete canvas. Paint the focus indicator using paintFocus()
ItemFocusIndicator
The focus is related to an item (curve, point, ...) on the canvas. It is up to the application to display a focus indication using f.e. highlighting.

enum QwtPlotCanvas::PaintAttribute

Paint attributes. The default setting enables BackingStore and Opaque.

See Also:

setPaintAttribute(), testPaintAttribute()

Enumerator

BackingStore
Paint double buffered reusing the content of the pixmap buffer when possible. Using a backing store might improve the performance significantly, when working with widget overlays ( like rubber bands ). Disabling the cache might improve the performance for incremental paints (using QwtPlotDirectPainter ).

See Also:

backingStore(), invalidateBackingStore()

Opaque
Try to fill the complete contents rectangle of the plot canvas. When using styled backgrounds Qt assumes, that the canvas doesn't fill its area completely ( f.e because of rounded borders ) and fills the area below the canvas. When this is done with gradients it might result in a serious performance bottleneck - depending on the size.

When the Opaque attribute is enabled the canvas tries to identify the gaps with some heuristics and to fill those only.

Warning:

Will not work for semitransparent backgrounds

HackStyledBackground
Try to improve painting of styled backgrounds. QwtPlotCanvas supports the box model attributes for customizing the layout with style sheets. Unfortunately the design of Qt style sheets has no concept how to handle backgrounds with rounded corners - beside of padding.

When HackStyledBackground is enabled the plot canvas tries to separate the background from the background border by reverse engineering to paint the background before and the border after the plot items. In this order the border gets perfectly antialiased and you can avoid some pixel artifacts in the corners.

ImmediatePaint
When ImmediatePaint is set replot() calls repaint() instead of update().

See Also:

replot(), QWidget::repaint(), QWidget::update()

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

QwtPlotCanvas::QwtPlotCanvas (QwtPlot *plot = NULL) [explicit]

Constructor.

Parameters:

plot Parent plot widget

See Also:

QwtPlot::setCanvas()

Member Function Documentation

const QPixmap * QwtPlotCanvas::backingStore () const

Returns:

Backing store, might be null

QPainterPath QwtPlotCanvas::borderPath (const QRect &rect) const

When the canvas has no styled background or rounded borders the painter path is empty.

Parameters:

rect Bounding rectangle of the canvas

Returns:

Painter path, that can be used for clipping

double QwtPlotCanvas::borderRadius () const

Returns:

Radius for the corners of the border frame

See Also:

setBorderRadius()

Draw the border of the plot canvas

Parameters:

painter Painter

See Also:

setBorderRadius()

Draw the focus indication

Parameters:

painter Painter

bool QwtPlotCanvas::event (QEvent *event) [virtual]

Qt event handler for QEvent::PolishRequest and QEvent::StyleChange

Parameters:

event Qt Event

Returns:

See QFrame::event()

Returns:

Focus indicator

See Also:

FocusIndicator, setFocusIndicator()

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

Paint event

Parameters:

event Paint event

void QwtPlotCanvas::replot () [slot]

Set the radius for the corners of the border frame

Parameters:

radius Radius of a rounded corner

See Also:

borderRadius()

void QwtPlotCanvas::setFocusIndicator (FocusIndicatorfocusIndicator)

Set the focus indicator

See Also:

FocusIndicator, focusIndicator()

void QwtPlotCanvas::setPaintAttribute (PaintAttributeattribute, boolon = true)

Changing the paint attributes.

Parameters:
