Detailed Description

       Base class for scale engines.

       A scale engine trys to find 'reasonable' ranges and step sizes for scales.

       The layout of the scale can be varied with setAttribute().

       Qwt offers implementations for logarithmic (log10) and linear scales. Contributions for
       other types of scale engines (date/time, log2 ... ) are welcome.

Member Enumeration Documentation

   enum QwtScaleEngine::Attribute .IP · 2
       IncludeReference
        Build a scale which includes the reference() value.

       · Symmetric
          Build a scale which is symmetric to the reference() value.

       · Floating
          The endpoints of the scale are supposed to be equal the outmost included values plus
         the specified margins (see setMargins()). If this attribute is *not* set, the endpoints
         of the scale will be integer multiples of the step size.

       · Inverted
          Turn the scale upside down.

Member Function Documentation

   int QwtScaleEngine::attributes () const Return the scale attributes

           Attribute, setAttributes(), testAttribute()

   virtual void QwtScaleEngine::autoScale (intmaxNumSteps, double &x1, double &x2, double
       &stepSize) const [pure virtual] Align and divide an interval
       Parameters:
           maxNumSteps Max. number of steps
           x1 First limit of the interval (In/Out)
           x2 Second limit of the interval (In/Out)
           stepSize Step size (Return value)

       Implemented in QwtLinearScaleEngine, and QwtLog10ScaleEngine.

   QwtDoubleInterval QwtScaleEngine::buildInterval (doublev) const [protected]
       Build an interval for a value. In case of v == 0.0 the interval is [-0.5, 0.5], otherwide
       it is [0.5 * v, 1.5 * v]

   bool QwtScaleEngine::contains (const QwtDoubleInterval &interval, doublevalue) const
       [protected] Check if an interval 'contains' a value
       Parameters:
           interval Interval
           value Value

       See also:
           QwtScaleArithmetic::compareEps()

   double QwtScaleEngine::divideInterval (doubleintervalSize, intnumSteps) const [protected]
       Calculate a step size for an interval size
       Parameters:
           intervalSize Interval size
           numSteps Number of steps

       Returns:
           Step size

   virtual QwtScaleDiv QwtScaleEngine::divideScale (doublex1, doublex2, intmaxMajSteps,
       intmaxMinSteps, doublestepSize = 0.0) const [pure virtual]
       Calculate a scale division. Parameters:
           x1 First interval limit
           x2 Second interval limit
           maxMajSteps Maximum for the number of major steps
           maxMinSteps Maximum number of minor steps
           stepSize Step size. If stepSize == 0.0, the scaleEngine calculates one.

       Implemented in QwtLinearScaleEngine, and QwtLog10ScaleEngine.

   double QwtScaleEngine::lowerMargin () const Returns:
           the margin at the lower end of the scale The default margin is 0.

       See also:
           setMargins()

   double QwtScaleEngine::reference () const Returns:
           the reference value

       See also:
           setReference(), setAttribute()

   void QwtScaleEngine::setAttribute (Attributeattribute, boolon = true) Change a scale attribute
       Parameters:
           attribute Attribute to change
           on On/Off

       See also:
           Attribute, testAttribute()

   void QwtScaleEngine::setAttributes (intattributes) Change the scale attribute
       Parameters:
           attributes Set scale attributes

       See also:
           Attribute, attributes()

   void QwtScaleEngine::setMargins (doublelower, doubleupper)
       Specify margins at the scale's endpoints. Parameters:
           lower minimum distance between the scale's lower boundary and the smallest enclosed
           value
           upper minimum distance between the scale's upper boundary and the greatest enclosed
           value

       Margins can be used to leave a minimum amount of space between the enclosed intervals and
       the boundaries of the scale.

       Warning:
           · QwtLog10ScaleEngine measures the margins in decades.
       See also:
           upperMargin(), lowerMargin()
   void QwtScaleEngine::setReference (doubler)
       Specify a reference point. Parameters:
           r new reference value
       The reference point is needed if options IncludeReference or Symmetric are active. Its
       default value is 0.0.

       &interval) const [protected] Remove ticks from a list, that are not inside an interval
       Parameters:
           ticks Tick list
           interval Interval
       Returns:
