A plotting widget, displaying a polar coordinate system.

An unlimited number of plot items can be displayed on its canvas. Plot items might be curves (QwtPolarCurve), markers (QwtPolarMarker), the grid (QwtPolarGrid), or anything else derived from QwtPolarItem.

The coordinate system is defined by a radial and a azimuth scale. 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. Autoscaling is supported for the radial scale.

In opposite to QwtPlot the scales might be different from the view, that is displayed on the canvas. The view can be changed by zooming - f.e. by using QwtPolarPanner or QwtPolarMaginfier.

Definition at line 46 of file qwt_polar_plot.h.

Position of the legend, relative to the canvas.

See also

insertLegend()

Enumerator

The legend will be left from the canvas.
The legend will be right from the canvas.
The legend will be below the canvas.
The legend will be between canvas and title.
External means that only the content of the legend will be handled by QwtPlot, but not its geometry. This might be interesting if an application wants to have a legend in an external window ( or on the canvas ).

Note

The legend is not painted by QwtPolarRenderer

QwtPolarItem * QwtPolarPlot::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 1357 of file qwt_polar_plot.cpp.

Insert a legend. If the position legend is QwtPolarPlot::LeftLegend or QwtPolarPlot::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.

If pos != QwtPolarPlot::ExternalLegend the plot widget will become parent of the legend. It will be deleted when the plot is deleted, or another legend is set with insertLegend().

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 rect 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.

Parameters

Parameters

plotItem Plot item

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

enable true or false. Defaults to true.

replot()

Enable autoscaling. This member function is used to switch back to autoscaling mode after a fixed scale has been set. Autoscaling calculates a useful scale division from the bounding interval of all plot items with the QwtPolarItem::AutoScale attribute.

Autoscaling is only supported for the radial scale and enabled as default.

Parameters

scaleId Scale index
