Detailed Description

Layout engine for QwtPlot.

It is used by the QwtPlot widget to organize its internal widgets or by QwtPlot::print() to render its content to a QPaintDevice like a QPrinter, QPixmap/QImage or QSvgRenderer.

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum QwtPlotLayout::Options Options to configure the plot layout engine

·
AlignScales
Unused
·
IgnoreScrollbars
Ignore the dimension of the scrollbars. There are no scrollbars, when the plot is rendered to a paint device (QwtPlot::print() ).
·
IgnoreFrames
Ignore all frames. QwtPlot::print() doesn't paint them.
·
IgnoreMargin
Ignore the margin().
·
IgnoreLegend
Ignore the legend.

Member Function Documentation

void QwtPlotLayout::activate (const QwtPlot *plot, const QRect &plotRect, intoptions = 0) [virtual]

Recalculate the geometry of all components. Parameters:

plot Plot to be layout
plotRect Rect where to place the components
options Options

See also:

invalidate(), Options, titleRect(), legendRect(), scaleRect(), canvasRect()

bool QwtPlotLayout::alignCanvasToScales () const Return the align-canvas-to-axis-scales setting. The canvas may

·
extend beyond the axis scale ends to maximize its size
·
align with the axis scale ends to control its size.

Returns:

align-canvas-to-axis-scales setting

See also:

setAlignCanvasToScales, setCanvasMargin()

Note:

In this context the term 'scale' means the backbone of a scale.

QRect QwtPlotLayout::alignLegend (const QRect &canvasRect, const QRect &legendRect) const [protected] Align the legend to the canvas

Parameters:

canvasRect Geometry of the canvas
legendRect Maximum geometry for the legend

Returns:

Geometry for the aligned legend

void QwtPlotLayout::alignScales (intoptions, QRect &canvasRect, QRectscaleRect[QwtPlot::axisCnt]) const [protected] Align the ticks of the axis to the canvas borders using the empty corners.

See also:

Options

int QwtPlotLayout::canvasMargin (intaxis) const Returns

Margin around the scale tick borders

See also:

setCanvasMargin()

const QRect & QwtPlotLayout::canvasRect () const Returns

Geometry for the canvas

See also:

activate(), invalidate()

void QwtPlotLayout::expandLineBreaks (intoptions, const QRect &rect, int &dimTitle, intdimAxis[QwtPlot::axisCnt]) const [protected] Expand all line breaks in text labels, and calculate the height of their widgets in orientation of the text.

Parameters:

options Options how to layout the legend
rect Bounding rect for title, axes and canvas.
dimTitle Expanded height of the title widget
dimAxis Expanded heights of the axis in axis orientation.

Options

void QwtPlotLayout::invalidate () [virtual] Invalidate the geometry of all components.

See also:

activate()

QRect QwtPlotLayout::layoutLegend (intoptions, const QRect &rect) const [protected] Find the geometry for the legend

Parameters:

options Options how to layout the legend
rect Rectangle where to place the legend

Returns:

Geometry for the legend

See also:

Options

QwtPlot::LegendPosition QwtPlotLayout::legendPosition () const Returns

Position of the legend

See also:

setLegendPosition(), QwtPlot::setLegendPosition(), QwtPlot::legendPosition()

double QwtPlotLayout::legendRatio () const Returns

The relative size of the legend in the plot.

See also:

setLegendPosition()

const QRect & QwtPlotLayout::legendRect () const Returns

Geometry for the legend

See also:

activate(), invalidate()

int QwtPlotLayout::margin () const Returns

margin

See also:

setMargin(), spacing(), QwtPlot::margin()

QSize QwtPlotLayout::minimumSizeHint (const QwtPlot *plot) const [virtual]

Return a minimum size hint. See also:

QwtPlot::minimumSizeHint()

const QRect & QwtPlotLayout::scaleRect (intaxis) const Parameters

axis Axis index

Returns:

Geometry for the scale

activate(), invalidate()

void QwtPlotLayout::setAlignCanvasToScales (boolalignCanvasToScales) Change the align-canvas-to-axis-scales setting. The canvas may

·
extend beyond the axis scale ends to maximize its size,
·
align with the axis scale ends to control its size.

Parameters:

alignCanvasToScales New align-canvas-to-axis-scales setting

See also:

setCanvasMargin()

Note:

In this context the term 'scale' means the backbone of a scale.

Warning:

In case of alignCanvasToScales == true canvasMargin will have no effect

void QwtPlotLayout::setCanvasMargin (intmargin, intaxis = -1) Change a margin of the canvas. The margin is the space above/below the scale ticks. A negative margin will be set to -1, excluding the borders of the scales.

Parameters:

margin New margin
axis One of QwtPlot::Axis. Specifies where the position of the margin. -1 means margin at all borders.

See also:

canvasMargin()

Warning:

The margin will have no effect when alignCanvasToScales is true

void QwtPlotLayout::setLegendPosition (QwtPlot::LegendPositionpos, doubleratio)

Specify the position of the legend. Parameters:

pos The legend's position.
ratio Ratio between legend and the bounding rect of title, canvas and axes. The legend will be shrinked 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:

QwtPlot::setLegendPosition()

void QwtPlotLayout::setLegendPosition (QwtPlot::LegendPositionpos)

Specify the position of the legend. Parameters:

pos The legend's position. Valid values are QwtPlot::LeftLegend, QwtPlot::RightLegend, QwtPlot::TopLegend, QwtPlot::BottomLegend.

See also:

QwtPlot::setLegendPosition()

void QwtPlotLayout::setLegendRatio (doubleratio) Specify the relative size of the legend in the plot

Parameters:

ratio Ratio between legend and the bounding rect of title, canvas and axes. The legend will be shrinked 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.

void QwtPlotLayout::setMargin (intmargin) Change the margin of the plot. The margin is the space around all components.

Parameters:

margin new margin

See also:

margin(), setSpacing(), QwtPlot::setMargin()

void QwtPlotLayout::setSpacing (intspacing) Change the spacing of the plot. The spacing is the distance between the plot components.

Parameters:

spacing new spacing

See also:

setMargin(), spacing()

int QwtPlotLayout::spacing () const Returns

spacing

See also:

margin(), setSpacing()

const QRect & QwtPlotLayout::titleRect () const Returns

Geometry for the title
