Detailed Description

A class representing a text.

A QwtText is a text including a set of attributes how to render it.

Format

 A text might include control sequences (f.e tags) describing how to render it. Each format (f.e MathML, TeX, Qt Rich Text) has its own set of control sequences, that can be handles by a special QwtTextEngine for this format.
Background

 A text might have a background, defined by a QPen and QBrush to improve its visibility. The corners of the background might be rounded.
Font

 A text might have an individual font.
Color

 A text might have an individual color.
Render Flags

 Flags from Qt::AlignmentFlag and Qt::TextFlag used like in QPainter::drawText().

QwtTextEngine, QwtTextLabel

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum QwtText::LayoutAttribute

Layout Attributes The layout attributes affects some aspects of the layout of the text.

Enumerator

MinimumLayout
Layout the text without its margins. This mode is useful if a text needs to be aligned accurately, like the tick labels of a scale. If QwtTextEngine::textMargins is not implemented for the format of the text, MinimumLayout has no effect.

enum QwtText::PaintAttribute

Paint Attributes. Font and color and background are optional attributes of a QwtText. The paint attributes hold the information, if they are set.

Enumerator

PaintUsingTextFont
The text has an individual font.
PaintUsingTextColor
The text has an individual color.
PaintBackground
The text has an individual background.

enum QwtText::TextFormat

Text format. The text format defines the QwtTextEngine, that is used to render the text.

See Also:

QwtTextEngine, setTextEngine()

Enumerator

AutoText
The text format is determined using QwtTextEngine::mightRender() for all available text engines in increasing order > PlainText. If none of the text engines can render the text is rendered like QwtText::PlainText.
PlainText
Draw the text as it is, using a QwtPlainTextEngine.
RichText
Use the Scribe framework (Qt Rich Text) to render the text.
MathMLText

      Use a MathML (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MathML) render engine
      to display the text. The Qwt MathML extension offers such an engine
      based on the MathML renderer of the Qt solutions package. 
      To enable MathML support the following code needs to be added to the
      application:


 

QwtText::setTextEngine(QwtText::MathMLText, new QwtMathMLTextEngine()); 


 

TeXText
Use a TeX (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TeX) render engine to display the text ( not implemented yet ).
OtherFormat
The number of text formats can be extended using setTextEngine. Formats >= QwtText::OtherFormat are not used by Qwt.

void QwtText::setColor (const QColor &color)

Set the pen color used for drawing the text.

With setTextEngine it is possible to extend Qwt with other types of text formats.

For QwtText::PlainText it is not allowed to assign a engine == NULL.

QwtMathMLTextEngine

Warning:

Using QwtText::AutoText does nothing.

bool QwtText::testLayoutAttribute (LayoutAttributeattribute) const

In case of QwtText::AutoText the first text engine (beside QwtPlainTextEngine) is returned, where QwtTextEngine::mightRender returns true. If there is none QwtPlainTextEngine is returned.

If no text engine is registered for the format QwtPlainTextEngine is returnd.

Parameters:

text Text, needed in case of AutoText
format Text format

Returns:

Corresponding text engine

const QwtTextEngine * QwtText::textEngine (QwtText::TextFormatformat) [static]

Find the text engine for a text format. textEngine can be used to find out if a text format is supported.

Parameters:

format Text format

Returns:

The text engine, or NULL if no engine is available.

QSizeF QwtText::textSize (const QFont &defaultFont = QFont()) const

Find the height for a given width

Parameters:

Returns:

Calculated height

Returns the size, that is needed to render text
