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();

Parameters

painter Painter used for drawing
canvasRect Bounding rectangle where to paint
maps QwtAxis::AxisCount maps, mapping between plot and paint device coordinates

Note

Usually canvasRect is contentsRect() of the plot canvas. Due to a bug in Qt this rectangle might be wrong for certain frame styles ( f.e QFrame::Box ) and it might be necessary to fix the margins manually using QWidget::setContentsMargins()

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()

Definition at line 1159 of file qwt_plot.cpp.

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()

Definition at line 927 of file qwt_plot.cpp.

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

Parameters

axisId Axis
pos position

Returns

Position as axis coordinate

Warning

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

Definition at line 397 of file qwt_plot_axis.cpp.

Checks if an axis is valid

Parameters

axisId axis

Returns

true if the specified axis exists, otherwise false

Note

This method is equivalent to QwtAxis::isValid( axisId ) and simply checks if axisId is one of the values of QwtAxis::Position. It is a placeholder for future releases, where it will be possible to have a customizable number of axes ( multiaxes branch ) at each side.

Definition at line 132 of file qwt_plot_axis.cpp.

Returns

True, if a specified axis is visible

Parameters

axisId Axis

Definition at line 225 of file qwt_plot_axis.cpp.

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

Parameters

plotItem Plot item
on Attached/Detached

Returns

Plot item embedded in a QVariant

See also

infoToItem()

Definition at line 1139 of file qwt_plot.cpp.

Definition at line 545 of file qwt_plot.cpp.

Resize and update internal layout

Parameters

e Resize event

Definition at line 530 of file qwt_plot.cpp.

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()

Definition at line 310 of file qwt_plot.cpp.

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

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
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()

Definition at line 473 of file qwt_plot_axis.cpp.

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

Definition at line 376 of file qwt_plot_axis.cpp.

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()

Definition at line 213 of file qwt_plot.cpp.

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.

Definition at line 414 of file qwt_plot_axis.cpp.

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().
