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

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  

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

 

QwtPlotRasterItem::QwtPlotRasterItem (const QString & title = QString::null) [explicit]

Constructor.

 

QwtPlotRasterItem::QwtPlotRasterItem (const QwtText & title) [explicit]

Constructor.

 

QwtPlotRasterItem::~QwtPlotRasterItem () [virtual]

Destructor.

 

Member Function Documentation

 

int QwtPlotRasterItem::alpha () const

Returns:

Alpha value of the raster item

See also:

setAlpha()

 

QwtPlotRasterItem::CachePolicy QwtPlotRasterItem::cachePolicy () const

Returns:

Cache policy

See also:

CachePolicy, setCachePolicy()

 

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

Draw the raster data.

Parameters:

painter Painter
xMap X-Scale Map
yMap Y-Scale Map
canvasRect Contents rect of the plot canvas

Implements QwtPlotItem.

Reimplemented in QwtPlotSpectrogram.  

void QwtPlotRasterItem::invalidateCache ()

Invalidate the paint cache

See also:

setCachePolicy()

 

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.  

void QwtPlotRasterItem::setAlpha (int alpha)

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.

See also:

alpha()

 

void QwtPlotRasterItem::setCachePolicy (QwtPlotRasterItem::CachePolicy policy)

Change the cache policy

The default policy is NoCache

Parameters:

policy Cache policy

See also:

CachePolicy, cachePolicy()
