Detailed Description

QwtPlotZoomer provides stacked zooming for a plot widget.

QwtPlotZoomer selects rectangles from user inputs ( mouse or keyboard ) translates them into plot coordinates and adjusts the axes to them. The selection is supported by a rubber band and optionally by displaying the coordinates of the current mouse position.

Zooming can be repeated as often as possible, limited only by maxStackDepth() or minZoomSize(). Each rectangle is pushed on a stack.

The default setting how to select rectangles is a QwtPickerDragRectMachine with the following bindings:

To traverse the zoom stack the following bindings are used:

The setKeyPattern() and setMousePattern() functions can be used to configure the zoomer actions. The following example shows, how to configure the 'I' and 'O' keys for zooming in and out one position on the zoom stack. The 'Home' key is used to 'unzoom' the plot.

zoomer = new QwtPlotZoomer( plot );
zoomer->setKeyPattern( QwtEventPattern::KeyRedo, Qt::Key_I, Qt::ShiftModifier );
zoomer->setKeyPattern( QwtEventPattern::KeyUndo, Qt::Key_O, Qt::ShiftModifier );
zoomer->setKeyPattern( QwtEventPattern::KeyHome, Qt::Key_Home );

QwtPlotZoomer is tailored for plots with one x and y axis, but it is allowed to attach a second QwtPlotZoomer ( without rubber band and tracker ) for the other axes.

Note

The realtime example includes an derived zoomer class that adds scrollbars to the plot canvas.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

QwtPlotZoomer::QwtPlotZoomer (QWidget * canvas, bool doReplot = true) [explicit]

Create a zoomer for a plot canvas. The zoomer is set to those x- and y-axis of the parent plot of the canvas that are enabled. If both or no x-axis are enabled, the picker is set to QwtPlot::xBottom. If both or no y-axis are enabled, it is set to QwtPlot::yLeft.

The zoomer is initialized with a QwtPickerDragRectMachine, the tracker mode is set to QwtPicker::ActiveOnly and the rubber band is set to QwtPicker::RectRubberBand

Parameters

canvas Plot canvas to observe, also the parent object
doReplot Call QwtPlot::replot() for the attached plot before initializing the zoomer with its scales. This might be necessary, when the plot is in a state with pending scale changes.

QwtPlot::autoReplot(), QwtPlot::replot(), setZoomBase()

QwtPlotZoomer::QwtPlotZoomer (int xAxis, int yAxis, QWidget * canvas, bool doReplot = true) [explicit]

Create a zoomer for a plot canvas. The zoomer is initialized with a QwtPickerDragRectMachine, the tracker mode is set to QwtPicker::ActiveOnly and the rubber band is set to QwtPicker;;RectRubberBand

Parameters

xAxis X axis of the zoomer
yAxis Y axis of the zoomer
canvas Plot canvas to observe, also the parent object
doReplot Call QwtPlot::replot() for the attached plot before initializing the zoomer with its scales. This might be necessary, when the plot is in a state with pending scale changes.

Member Function Documentation

bool QwtPlotZoomer::accept (QPolygon & pa) const [protected], [virtual]

Check and correct a selected rectangle. Reject rectangles with a height or width < 2, otherwise expand the selected rectangle to a minimum size of 11x11 and accept it.

Returns

true If the rectangle is accepted, or has been changed to an accepted one.

Reimplemented from QwtPicker.

void QwtPlotZoomer::begin () [protected], [virtual]

Rejects selections, when the stack depth is too deep, or the zoomed rectangle is minZoomSize().

See also

minZoomSize(), maxStackDepth()

Reimplemented from QwtPicker.

bool QwtPlotZoomer::end (bool ok = true) [protected], [virtual]

Expand the selected rectangle to minZoomSize() and zoom in if accepted.

Parameters

ok If true, complete the selection and emit selected signals otherwise discard the selection.

See also

accept(), minZoomSize()

Returns

True if the selection has been accepted, false otherwise

Reimplemented from QwtPlotPicker.

int QwtPlotZoomer::maxStackDepth () const

Returns

Maximal depth of the zoom stack.

See also

setMaxStackDepth()

QSizeF QwtPlotZoomer::minZoomSize () const [protected], [virtual]

Limit zooming by a minimum rectangle.

Returns

zoomBase().width() / 10e4, zoomBase().height() / 10e4

void QwtPlotZoomer::moveBy (double dx, double dy) [slot]

Move the current zoom rectangle.

Parameters

dx X offset
dy Y offset

Note

The changed rectangle is limited by the zoom base

void QwtPlotZoomer::moveTo (const QPointF & pos) [virtual], [slot]

Move the the current zoom rectangle.

Parameters

pos New position

See also

QRectF::moveTo()

Note

The changed rectangle is limited by the zoom base

void QwtPlotZoomer::rescale () [protected], [virtual]

Adjust the observed plot to zoomRect()

Note

Initiates QwtPlot::replot()

void QwtPlotZoomer::setAxis (int xAxis, int yAxis) [virtual]

Reinitialize the axes, and set the zoom base to their scales.

Parameters

xAxis X axis
yAxis Y axis

Reimplemented from QwtPlotPicker.

void QwtPlotZoomer::setMaxStackDepth (int depth)

Limit the number of recursive zoom operations to depth. A value of -1 set the depth to unlimited, 0 disables zooming. If the current zoom rectangle is below depth, the plot is unzoomed.

Parameters

depth Maximum for the stack depth

See also

maxStackDepth()

Note

depth doesn't include the zoom base, so zoomStack().count() might be maxStackDepth() + 1.

void QwtPlotZoomer::setZoomBase (bool doReplot = true) [virtual]

Reinitialized the zoom stack with scaleRect() as base.

Parameters

doReplot Call QwtPlot::replot() for the attached plot before initializing the zoomer with its scales. This might be necessary, when the plot is in a state with pending scale changes.

See also

zoomBase(), scaleRect() QwtPlot::autoReplot(), QwtPlot::replot().

void QwtPlotZoomer::setZoomBase (const QRectF & base) [virtual]

Set the initial size of the zoomer. base is united with the current scaleRect() and the zoom stack is reinitialized with it as zoom base. plot is zoomed to scaleRect().

Parameters

base Zoom base

See also

zoomBase(), scaleRect()

void QwtPlotZoomer::setZoomStack (const QStack< QRectF > & zoomStack, int zoomRectIndex = -1)

Assign a zoom stack. In combination with other types of navigation it might be useful to modify to manipulate the complete zoom stack.

Parameters

zoomStack New zoom stack
zoomRectIndex Index of the current position of zoom stack. In case of -1 the current position is at the top of the stack.

Note

The zoomed signal might be emitted.

zoomStack(), zoomRectIndex()

void QwtPlotZoomer::widgetKeyPressEvent (QKeyEvent * ke) [protected], [virtual]

Qt::Key_Plus zooms in, Qt::Key_Minus zooms out one position on the zoom stack, Qt::Key_Escape zooms out to the zoom base.

Changes the current position on the stack, but doesn't pop any rectangle.

Note

The keys codes can be changed, using QwtEventPattern::setKeyPattern: 3, 4, 5

Reimplemented from QwtPicker.

void QwtPlotZoomer::widgetMouseReleaseEvent (QMouseEvent * me) [protected], [virtual]

Qt::MidButton zooms out one position on the zoom stack, Qt::RightButton to the zoom base.

Changes the current position on the stack, but doesn't pop any rectangle.

Note

The mouse events can be changed, using QwtEventPattern::setMousePattern: 2, 1

Reimplemented from QwtPicker.

void QwtPlotZoomer::zoom (const QRectF & rect) [virtual], [slot]

Zoom in. Clears all rectangles above the current position of the zoom stack and pushes the normalized rectangle on it.

Note

If the maximal stack depth is reached, zoom is ignored.

The zoomed signal is emitted.

void QwtPlotZoomer::zoom (int offset) [virtual], [slot]

Zoom in or out. Activate a rectangle on the zoom stack with an offset relative to the current position. Negative values of offset will zoom out, positive zoom in. A value of 0 zooms out to the zoom base.

offset Offset relative to the current position of the zoom stack.

Note

The zoomed signal is emitted.
