Detailed Description

A class representing a text.

A QwtText is a text including a set of attributes how to render it.

·
Format
A text might include control sequences (f.e tags) describing how to render it. Each format (f.e MathML, TeX, Qt Rich Text) has its own set of control sequences, that can be handles by a QwtTextEngine for this format.
·
Background
A text might have a background, defined by a QPen and QBrush to improve its visibility.
·
Font
A text might have an individual font.
·
Color
A text might have an individual color.
·
Render Flags
Flags from Qt::AlignmentFlag and Qt::TextFlag used like in QPainter::drawText.

QwtTextEngine, QwtTextLabel

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum QwtText::LayoutAttribute

Layout Attributes. The layout attributes affects some aspects of the layout of the text.

·
MinimumLayout
Layout the text without its margins. This mode is useful if a text needs to be aligned accurately, like the tick labels of a scale. If QwtTextEngine::textMargins is not implemented for the format of the text, MinimumLayout has no effect.

enum QwtText::PaintAttribute

Paint Attributes. Font and color and background are optional attributes of a QwtText. The paint attributes hold the information, if they are set.

·
PaintUsingTextFont
The text has an individual font.
·
PaintUsingTextColor
The text has an individual color.
·
PaintBackground
The text has an individual background.

enum QwtText::TextFormat

Text format. The text format defines the QwtTextEngine, that is used to render the text.

·
AutoText
The text format is determined using QwtTextEngine::mightRender for all available text engines in increasing order > PlainText. If none of the text engines can render the text is rendered like PlainText.
·
PlainText
Draw the text as it is, using a QwtPlainTextEngine.
·
RichText
Use the Scribe framework (Qt Rich Text) to render the text.
·
MathMLText
Use a MathML (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MathML) render engine to display the text. The Qwt MathML extension offers such an engine based on the MathML renderer of the Qt solutions package. Unfortunately it is only available for owners of a commercial Qt license.
·
TeXText
Use a TeX (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TeX) render engine to display the text.
·
OtherFormat
The number of text formats can be extended using setTextEngine. Formats >= OtherFormat are not used by Qwt.

See also:

setBackgroundBrush(), backgroundPen()

QPen QwtText::backgroundPen () const Returns

Background pen

See also:

setBackgroundPen(), backgroundBrush()

QColor QwtText::color () const

Return the pen color, used for painting the text.

void QwtText::draw (QPainter *painter, const QRect &rect) const Draw a text into a rectangle

Parameters:

painter Painter
rect Rectangle

QFont QwtText::font () const

Return the font.

int QwtText::heightForWidth (intwidth, const QFont &defaultFont = QFont()) const Find the height for a given width

Parameters:

defaultFont Font, used for the calculation if the text has no font
width Width

Returns:

Calculated height

bool QwtText::isEmpty () const [inline] Returns

text().isEmpty()

bool QwtText::isNull () const [inline] Returns

text().isNull()

int QwtText::operator!= (const QwtText &other) const

Relational operator.

QwtText & QwtText::operator= (const QwtText &other)

Assignment operator.

int QwtText::operator== (const QwtText &other) const

int QwtText::renderFlags () const Returns

Render flags

See also:

setRenderFlags()

void QwtText::setBackgroundBrush (const QBrush &brush) Set the background brush

Parameters:

brush Background brush

See also:

backgroundBrush(), setBackgroundPen()

void QwtText::setBackgroundPen (const QPen &pen) Set the background pen

Parameters:

pen Background pen

See also:

backgroundPen(), setBackgroundBrush()

void QwtText::setColor (const QColor &color) Set the pen color used for painting the text.

Parameters:

color Color

Note:

Setting the color might have no effect, when the text contains control sequences for setting colors.

void QwtText::setFont (const QFont &font) Set the font.

Parameters:

font Font

Note:

Setting the font might have no effect, when the text contains control sequences for setting fonts.

void QwtText::setLayoutAttribute (LayoutAttributeattribute, boolon = true) Change a layout attribute

Parameters:

attribute Layout attribute
on On/Off

See also:

testLayoutAttribute()

void QwtText::setPaintAttribute (PaintAttributeattribute, boolon = true) Change a paint attribute

Parameters:

attribute Paint attribute
on On/Off

Note:

Used by setFont(), setColor(), setBackgroundPen() and setBackgroundBrush()

See also:

testPaintAttribute()

void QwtText::setRenderFlags (intrenderFlags)

Change the render flags. The default setting is Qt::AlignCenter

Parameters:

renderFlags Bitwise OR of the flags used like in QPainter::drawText

See also:

renderFlags(), QwtTextEngine::draw()

Note:

Some renderFlags might have no effect, depending on the text format.

void QwtText::setText (const QString &text, QwtText::TextFormattextFormat = AutoText) Assign a new text content

Parameters:

text Text content
textFormat Text format

See also:

text()

void QwtText::setTextEngine (QwtText::TextFormatformat, QwtTextEngine *engine) [static] Assign/Replace a text engine for a text format

With setTextEngine it is possible to extend Qwt with other types of text formats.

Owner of a commercial Qt license can build the qwtmathml library, that is based on the MathML renderer, that is included in MML Widget component of the Qt solutions package.

For QwtText::PlainText it is not allowed to assign a engine == NULL.

Parameters:

format Text format
engine Text engine

See also:

QwtMathMLTextEngine

Warning:

Using QwtText::AutoText does nothing.

bool QwtText::testLayoutAttribute (LayoutAttributeattribute) const Test a layout attribute

Parameters:

attribute Layout attribute

Returns:

true, if attribute is enabled

See also:

setLayoutAttribute()

bool QwtText::testPaintAttribute (PaintAttributeattribute) const Test a paint attribute

Parameters:

attribute Paint attribute

Returns:

true, if attribute is enabled

See also:

setPaintAttribute()

QString QwtText::text () const Return the text.

See also:

setText()

const QwtTextEngine * QwtText::textEngine (QwtText::TextFormatformat) [static]

Find the text engine for a text format. textEngine can be used to find out if a text format is supported. F.e, if one wants to use MathML labels, the MathML renderer from the commercial Qt solutions package might be required, that is not available in Qt Open Source Edition environments.

Parameters:

format Text format

Returns:

The text engine, or NULL if no engine is available.

const QwtTextEngine * QwtText::textEngine (const QString &text, QwtText::TextFormatformat = AutoText) [static] Find the text engine for a text format

In case of QwtText::AutoText the first text engine (beside QwtPlainTextEngine) is returned, where QwtTextEngine::mightRender returns true. If there is none QwtPlainTextEngine is returnd.

If no text engine is registered for the format QwtPlainTextEngine is returnd.

Parameters:

text Text, needed in case of AutoText
format Text format

QSize QwtText::textSize (const QFont &defaultFont = QFont()) const Find the height for a given width

Parameters:

defaultFont Font, used for the calculation if the text has no font

Returns:

Calculated height

Returns the size, that is needed to render text

Parameters:

defaultFont Font of the text

Returns:

Caluclated size

QColor QwtText::usedColor (const QColor &defaultColor) const Return the color of the text, if it has one. Otherwise return defaultColor.

Parameters:

defaultColor Default color

See also:

setColor(), color(), PaintAttributes

QFont QwtText::usedFont (const QFont &defaultFont) const Return the font of the text, if it has one. Otherwise return defaultFont.

Parameters:

defaultFont Default font
