Detailed Description

An alternative canvas for a QwtPlot derived from QGLWidget.

QwtPlotGLCanvas implements the very basics to act as canvas inside of a QwtPlot widget. It might be extended to a full featured alternative to QwtPlotCanvas in a future version of Qwt.

Even if QwtPlotGLCanvas is not derived from QFrame it imitates its API. When using style sheets it supports the box model - beside backgrounds with rounded borders.

See Also:

QwtPlot::setCanvas(), QwtPlotCanvas

Note:

You might want to use the QPaintEngine::OpenGL paint engine ( see QGL::setPreferredPaintEngine() ). On a Linux test system QPaintEngine::OpenGL2 shows very basic problems ( wrong geometries of rectangles ) but also more advanced stuff like antialiasing doesn't work.

Another way to introduce OpenGL rendering to Qwt is to use QGLPixelBuffer or QGLFramebufferObject. Both type of buffers can be converted into a QImage and used in combination with a regular QwtPlotCanvas.

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum QwtPlotGLCanvas::Shadow

Frame shadow. Unfortunately it is not possible to use QFrame::Shadow as a property of a widget that is not derived from QFrame. The following enum is made for the designer only. It is safe to use QFrame::Shadow instead.

Enumerator

Plain
QFrame::Plain.
Raised
QFrame::Raised.
Sunken
QFrame::Sunken.

enum QwtPlotGLCanvas::Shape

Frame shape. Unfortunately it is not possible to use QFrame::Shape as a property of a widget that is not derived from QFrame. The following enum is made for the designer only. It is safe to use QFrame::Shadow instead.

Note:

QFrame::StyledPanel and QFrame::WinPanel are unsuported and will be displayed as QFrame::Panel.
