Detailed Description

QwtColorMap is used to map values into colors.

For displaying 3D data on a 2D plane the 3rd dimension is often displayed using colors, like f.e in a spectrogram.

Each color map is optimized to return colors for only one of the following image formats:

·
QImage::Format_Indexed8
·
QImage::Format_ARGB32

QwtPlotSpectrogram, QwtScaleWidget

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum QwtColorMap::Format .IP · 2

RGB
The map is intended to map into QRgb values.

·
Indexed
The map is intended to map into 8 bit values, that are indices into the color table.

rgb(), colorIndex(), colorTable()

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

QwtColorMap::QwtColorMap (Formatformat = QwtColorMap::RGB)

Constructor.

QwtColorMap::~QwtColorMap () [virtual]

Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

QColor QwtColorMap::color (const QwtDoubleInterval &interval, doublevalue) const [inline] Map a value into a color

Parameters:

interval Valid interval for values
value Value

Returns:

Color corresponding to value

Warning:

This method is slow for Indexed color maps. If it is necessary to map many values, its better to get the color table once and find the color using colorIndex().

virtual unsigned char QwtColorMap::colorIndex (const QwtDoubleInterval &interval, doublevalue) const [pure virtual] Map a value of a given interval into a color index

Parameters:

interval Range for the values
value Value

Returns:

color index, corresponding to value

Implemented in QwtLinearColorMap.

QwtColorTable QwtColorMap::colorTable (const QwtDoubleInterval &interval) const [virtual] Build and return a color map of 256 colors

The color table is needed for rendering indexed images in combination with using colorIndex().

Parameters:

interval Range for the values

Returns:

A color table, that can be used for a QImage

virtual QwtColorMap* QwtColorMap::copy () const [pure virtual]

Clone the color map.

Implemented in QwtLinearColorMap, and QwtAlphaColorMap.

QwtColorMap::Format QwtColorMap::format () const [inline] Returns

Intended format of the color map

Format

virtual QRgb QwtColorMap::rgb (const QwtDoubleInterval &interval, doublevalue) const [pure virtual] Map a value of a given interval into a rgb value.

Parameters:

interval Range for the values
value Value

Returns:

rgb value, corresponding to value

Implemented in QwtLinearColorMap, and QwtAlphaColorMap.
