NAME

QwtDial -  

SYNOPSIS


Inherits QwtSliderBase.

Inherited by QwtAnalogClock, and QwtCompass.

 

Detailed Description

QwtDial class provides a rounded range control.

QwtDial is intended as base class for dial widgets like speedometers, compass widgets, clocks ...

A dial contains a scale and a needle indicating the current value of the dial. Depending on Mode one of them is fixed and the other is rotating. If not isReadOnly() the dial can be rotated by dragging the mouse or using keyboard inputs (see keyPressEvent()). A dial might be wrapping, what means a rotation below/above one limit continues on the other limit (f.e compass). The scale might cover any arc of the dial, its values are related to the origin() of the dial.

Qwt is missing a set of good looking needles (QwtDialNeedle). Contributions are very welcome.

The examples/dials example shows different types of dials.

Member Enumeration Documentation

 

enum QwtDial::Mode

In case of RotateNeedle the needle is rotating, in case of RotateScale, the needle points to origin() and the scale is rotating. Definition at line 117 of file qwt_dial.h.

Referenced by mode().  

enum QwtDial::ScaleOptions

see QwtDial::setScaleOptions

Definition at line 105 of file qwt_dial.h.  

enum QwtDial::Shadow

Frame shadow.

Unfortunately it is not possible to use QFrame::Shadow as a property of a widget that is not derived from QFrame. The following enum is made for the designer only. It is safe to use QFrame::Shadow instead. Definition at line 97 of file qwt_dial.h.

Referenced by frameShadow().  

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

 

QwtDial::QwtDial (QWidget * parent = 0, const char * name = 0)

Constructor.

Parameters:

parent Parent widget
name Widget name

Create a dial widget with no scale and no needle. The default origin is 90.0 with no valid value. It accepts mouse and keyboard inputs and has no step size. The default mode is QwtDial::RotateNeedle. Definition at line 107 of file qwt_dial.cpp.
