Detailed Description

A bracket for referencing/highlighting certain parts in the plot.

QCPItemBracket.png
Bracket example. Blue dotted circles are anchors, solid blue discs are positions.

It has two positions, left and right, which define the span of the bracket. If left is actually farther to the left than right, the bracket is opened to the bottom, as shown in the example image.

The bracket supports multiple styles via setStyle. The length, i.e. how far the bracket stretches away from the embraced span, can be controlled with setLength.

It provides an anchor center, to allow connection of other items, e.g. an arrow (QCPItemLine or QCPItemCurve) or a text label (QCPItemText), to the bracket.

Member Enumeration Documentation

§ BracketStyle

Defines the various visual shapes of the bracket item. The appearance can be further modified by setLength and setPen.

setStyle
Enumerator
bsSquare 

A brace with angled edges.

bsRound 

A brace with round edges.

bsCurly 

A curly brace.

bsCalligraphic 

A curly brace with varying stroke width giving a calligraphic impression.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

§ QCPItemBracket()

QCPItemBracket::QCPItemBracket ( QCustomPlot parentPlot)
explicit

Creates a bracket item and sets default values.

The created item is automatically registered with parentPlot. This QCustomPlot instance takes ownership of the item, so do not delete it manually but use QCustomPlot::removeItem() instead.

Member Function Documentation

§ setPen()

void QCPItemBracket::setPen ( const QPen &  pen)

Sets the pen that will be used to draw the bracket.

Note that when the style is bsCalligraphic, only the color will be taken from the pen, the stroke and width are ignored. To change the apparent stroke width of a calligraphic bracket, use setLength, which has a similar effect.

setSelectedPen

§ setSelectedPen()

void QCPItemBracket::setSelectedPen ( const QPen &  pen)

Sets the pen that will be used to draw the bracket when selected

See also
setPen, setSelected

§ setLength()

void QCPItemBracket::setLength ( double  length)

Sets the length in pixels how far the bracket extends in the direction towards the embraced span of the bracket (i.e. perpendicular to the left-right-direction)

§ setStyle()

void QCPItemBracket::setStyle ( QCPItemBracket::BracketStyle  style)

Sets the style of the bracket, i.e. the shape/visual appearance.

setPen

§ selectTest()

double QCPItemBracket::selectTest ( const QPointF &  pos,
bool  onlySelectable,
QVariant *  details = 0 
) const
virtual

This function is used to decide whether a click hits a layerable object or not.

pos is a point in pixel coordinates on the QCustomPlot surface. This function returns the shortest pixel distance of this point to the object. If the object is either invisible or the distance couldn't be determined, -1.0 is returned. Further, if onlySelectable is true and the object is not selectable, -1.0 is returned, too.

If the object is represented not by single lines but by an area like a QCPItemText or the bars of a QCPBars plottable, a click inside the area should also be considered a hit. In these cases this function thus returns a constant value greater zero but still below the parent plot's selection tolerance. (typically the selectionTolerance multiplied by 0.99).

Providing a constant value for area objects allows selecting line objects even when they are obscured by such area objects, by clicking close to the lines (i.e. closer than 0.99*selectionTolerance).

The actual setting of the selection state is not done by this function. This is handled by the parent QCustomPlot when the mouseReleaseEvent occurs, and the finally selected object is notified via the selectEvent/deselectEvent methods.

details is an optional output parameter. Every layerable subclass may place any information in details. This information will be passed to selectEvent when the parent QCustomPlot decides on the basis of this selectTest call, that the object was successfully selected. The subsequent call to selectEvent will carry the details. This is useful for multi-part objects (like QCPAxis). This way, a possibly complex calculation to decide which part was clicked is only done once in selectTest. The result (i.e. the actually clicked part) can then be placed in details. So in the subsequent selectEvent, the decision which part was selected doesn't have to be done a second time for a single selection operation.

You may pass 0 as details to indicate that you are not interested in those selection details.

Implements QCPAbstractItem.

§ draw()

void QCPItemBracket::draw ( QCPPainter painter)
protectedvirtual

Draws this item with the provided painter.

The cliprect of the provided painter is set to the rect returned by clipRect before this function is called. The clipRect depends on the clipping settings defined by setClipToAxisRect and setClipAxisRect.

Implements QCPAbstractItem.

§ anchorPixelPosition()

QPointF QCPItemBracket::anchorPixelPosition ( int  anchorId) const
protectedvirtual

Returns the pixel position of the anchor with Id anchorId. This function must be reimplemented in item subclasses if they want to provide anchors (QCPItemAnchor).

For example, if the item has two anchors with id 0 and 1, this function takes one of these anchor ids and returns the respective pixel points of the specified anchor.

See also
createAnchor

Reimplemented from QCPAbstractItem.

§ mainPen()

QPen QCPItemBracket::mainPen ( ) const
protected

Returns the pen that should be used for drawing lines. Returns mPen when the item is not selected and mSelectedPen when it is.
