Detailed Description

Defines abstract interface for arrow drawing routines.

Arrow needs to be drawn horizontally with arrow tip at coordinate 0,0. arrowLength() shall return the entire length of the arrow (needed to translate the arrow for tail/centered alignment). setArrowLength() defines arror length in pixels (screen coordinates). It can be implemented to adjust other geometric properties such as the head size and width of the arrow. It is always called before paint().

A new arrow implementation can be set with QwtPlotVectorField::setArrowSymbol(), whereby ownership is transferred to the plot field.
