Detailed Description

A class, which displays raster data.

Raster data is a grid of pixel values, that can be represented as a QImage. It is used for many types of information like spectrograms, cartograms, geographical maps ...

Often a plot has several types of raster data organized in layers. ( f.e a geographical map, with weather statistics ). Using setAlpha() raster items can be stacked easily.

QwtPlotRasterItem is only implemented for images of the following formats: QImage::Format_Indexed8, QImage::Format_ARGB32.

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum QwtPlotRasterItem::CachePolicy .IP · 2

NoCache
renderImage() is called, whenever the item has to be repainted

·
PaintCache
renderImage() is called, whenever the image cache is not valid, or the scales, or the size of the canvas has changed. This type of cache is only useful for improving the performance of hide/show operations. All other situations are already handled by the plot canvas cache.
·
ScreenCache
The screen cache is an image in size of the screen. As long as the scales don't change the target image is scaled from the cache. This might improve the performance when resizing the plot widget, but suffers from scaling effects.

The default policy is NoCache

enum QwtPlotItem::ItemAttribute [inherited] Plot Item Attributes

·
Legend
The item is represented on the legend.
·
AutoScale
The boundingRect() of the item is included in the autoscaling calculation.

setItemAttribute(), testItemAttribute()

enum QwtPlotItem::RenderHint [inherited]

Render hints.

enum QwtPlotItem::RttiValues [inherited]

Runtime type information. RttiValues is used to cast plot items, without having to enable runtime type information of the compiler.

Member Function Documentation

int QwtPlotRasterItem::alpha () const Returns

Alpha value of the raster item

See also:

setAlpha()

void QwtPlotItem::attach (QwtPlot *plot) [inherited]

Attach the item to a plot. This method will attach a QwtPlotItem to the QwtPlot argument. It will first detach the QwtPlotItem from any plot from a previous call to attach (if necessary). If a NULL argument is passed, it will detach from any QwtPlot it was attached to.

Parameters:

plot Plot widget

QwtPlotItem::detach()

QwtDoubleRect QwtPlotItem::boundingRect () const [virtual, inherited] Returns

An invalid bounding rect: QwtDoubleRect(1.0, 1.0, -2.0, -2.0)

Reimplemented in QwtPlotCurve, QwtPlotMarker, QwtPlotSpectrogram, and QwtPlotSvgItem.

QwtPlotRasterItem::CachePolicy QwtPlotRasterItem::cachePolicy () const Returns

Cache policy

See also:

CachePolicy, setCachePolicy()

void QwtPlotItem::detach () [inline, inherited]

This method detaches a QwtPlotItem from any QwtPlot it has been associated with. detach() is equivalent to calling attach( NULL )

See also:

attach( QwtPlot* plot )

void QwtPlotRasterItem::draw (QPainter *painter, const QwtScaleMap &xMap, const QwtScaleMap &yMap, const QRect &canvasRect) const [virtual]

Draw the raster data. Parameters:

yMap Y-Scale Map
canvasRect Contents rect of the plot canvas

Implements QwtPlotItem.

Reimplemented in QwtPlotSpectrogram.

void QwtPlotItem::hide () [inherited]

Hide the item.

void QwtPlotRasterItem::invalidateCache () Invalidate the paint cache

See also:

setCachePolicy()

QwtDoubleRect QwtPlotItem::invTransform (const QwtScaleMap &xMap, const QwtScaleMap &yMap, const QRect &rect) const [inherited] Transform a rectangle from paint to scale coordinates

Parameters:

xMap X map

See also:

transform()

bool QwtPlotItem::isVisible () const [inherited] Returns

true if visible

See also:

setVisible(), show(), hide()

void QwtPlotItem::itemChanged () [virtual, inherited] Update the legend and call QwtPlot::autoRefresh for the parent plot.

See also:

updateLegend()

QWidget * QwtPlotItem::legendItem () const [virtual, inherited]

Allocate the widget that represents the item on the legend. The default implementation is made for QwtPlotCurve and returns a QwtLegendItem(), but an item could be represented by any type of widget, by overloading legendItem() and updateLegend().

Returns:

QwtLegendItem()

See also:

updateLegend() QwtLegend()

Implements QwtLegendItemManager.

QRect QwtPlotItem::paintRect (const QwtScaleMap &xMap, const QwtScaleMap &yMap) const [inherited]

Calculate the bounding paint rect of 2 maps. Parameters:

xMap X map
yMap X map

Returns:

Bounding rect of the scale maps

QwtPlot * QwtPlotItem::plot () const [inherited]

Return attached plot.

QSize QwtPlotRasterItem::rasterHint (const QwtDoubleRect &) const [virtual]

Returns the recommended raster for a given rect. F.e the raster hint can be used to limit the resolution of the image that is rendered.

The default implementation returns an invalid size (QSize()), what means: no hint.

Reimplemented in QwtPlotSpectrogram.

virtual QImage QwtPlotRasterItem::renderImage (const QwtScaleMap &xMap, const QwtScaleMap &yMap, const QwtDoubleRect &area) const [protected, pure virtual] Renders an image for an area

The format of the image must be QImage::Format_Indexed8, QImage::Format_RGB32 or QImage::Format_ARGB32

Parameters:

xMap Maps x-values into pixel coordinates.
yMap Maps y-values into pixel coordinates.
area Requested area for the image in scale coordinates

Implemented in QwtPlotSpectrogram.

int QwtPlotItem::rtti () const [virtual, inherited] Return rtti for the specific class represented. QwtPlotItem is simply a virtual interface class, and base classes will implement this method with specific rtti values so a user can differentiate them.

The rtti value is useful for environments, where the runtime type information is disabled and it is not possible to do a dynamic_cast<...>.

Returns:

rtti value

See also:

RttiValues

Reimplemented in QwtPlotCurve, QwtPlotGrid, QwtPlotMarker, QwtPlotScaleItem, QwtPlotSpectrogram, and QwtPlotSvgItem.

QwtDoubleRect QwtPlotItem::scaleRect (const QwtScaleMap &xMap, const QwtScaleMap &yMap) const [inherited]

Calculate the bounding scale rect of 2 maps. Parameters:

xMap X map
yMap X map

Returns:

Bounding rect of the scale maps

void QwtPlotRasterItem::setAlpha (intalpha)

Set an alpha value for the raster data. Often a plot has several types of raster data organized in layers. ( f.e a geographical map, with weather statistics ). Using setAlpha() raster items can be stacked easily.

The alpha value is a value [0, 255] to control the transparency of the image. 0 represents a fully transparent color, while 255 represents a fully opaque color.

Parameters:

alpha Alpha value

·
alpha >= 0
All alpha values of the pixels returned by renderImage() will be set to alpha, beside those with an alpha value of 0 (invalid pixels).
·
alpha < 0 The alpha values returned by renderImage() are not changed.

The default alpha value is -1.
