Detailed Description

The Knob Widget.

The QwtKnob widget imitates look and behaviour of a volume knob on a radio. It contains a scale around the knob which is set up automatically or can be configured manually (see QwtAbstractScale). Automatic scrolling is enabled when the user presses a mouse button on the scale. For a description of signals, slots and other members, see QwtAbstractSlider.

See also:

QwtAbstractSlider and QwtAbstractScale for the descriptions of the inherited members.

Change the knob's width. The specified width must be >= 5, or it will be clipped.

Parameters:

w New width

void QwtAbstractSlider::setMass (doubleval) [virtual, inherited]

Set the slider's mass for flywheel effect. If the slider's mass is greater then 0, it will continue to move after the mouse button has been released. Its speed decreases with time at a rate depending on the slider's mass. A large mass means that it will continue to move for a long time.

Derived widgets may overload this function to make it public.

Parameters:

val New mass in kg

See also:

mass()

Reimplemented in QwtWheel.

Set the orientation. Parameters:

o Orientation. Allowed values are Qt::Horizontal and Qt::Vertical.

Reimplemented in QwtSlider, and QwtWheel.

void QwtDoubleRange::setPeriodic (booltf) [inherited]

Make the range periodic. When the range is periodic, the value will be set to a point inside the interval such that

point = value + n * width .fi

if the user tries to set a new value which is outside the range. If the range is nonperiodic (the default), values outside the range will be clipped.

Parameters:
tf true for a periodic range

void QwtAbstractSlider::setPosition (const QPoint &p) [protected, virtual, inherited] Move the slider to a specified point, adjust the value and emit signals if necessary.

void QwtDoubleRange::setRange (doublevmin, doublevmax, doublevstep = 0.0, intpageSize = 1) [inherited]

Specify range and step size. Parameters:

vmin lower boundary of the interval
vmax higher boundary of the interval
vstep step width
pageSize page size in steps

Warning:

·
A change of the range changes the value if it lies outside the new range. The current value will *not* be adjusted to the new step raster.
·
vmax < vmin is allowed.
·
If the step size is left out or set to zero, it will be set to 1/100 of the interval length.
·
If the step size has an absurd value, it will be corrected to a better one.

void QwtAbstractSlider::setReadOnly (boolreadOnly) [virtual, slot, inherited] En/Disable read only mode

In read only mode the slider can't be controlled by mouse or keyboard.

Parameters:

readOnly Enables in case of true
