A abstract base class for drawing scales.
QwtAbstractScaleDraw can be used to draw linear or logarithmic scales.
After a scale division has been specified as a QwtScaleDiv object using QwtAbstractScaleDraw::setScaleDiv(const QwtScaleDiv &s), the scale can be drawn with the QwtAbstractScaleDraw::draw() member.

Components of a scale
See also:
enableComponent(), hasComponent

Constructor. The range of the scale is initialized to [0, 100], The spacing (distance between ticks and labels) is set to 4, the tick lengths are set to 4,6 and 8 pixels

Draw the scale. Parameters:
painter The painter
palette Palette, text color is used for the labels, foreground color for ticks and backbone

Draws the baseline of the scale
painter Painter
See also:
drawTick(), drawLabel()
Implemented in QwtScaleDraw, and QwtRoundScaleDraw.

Draws the label for a major scale tick
painter Painter
value Value
See also:
drawTick, drawBackbone
Implemented in QwtScaleDraw, and QwtRoundScaleDraw.

Draw a tick
painter Painter
value Value of the tick
len Lenght of the tick
See also:
drawBackbone(), drawLabel()
Implemented in QwtScaleDraw, and QwtRoundScaleDraw.

En/Disable a component of the scale
component Scale component
enable On/Off

Calculate the extent
The extent is the distcance from the baseline to the outermost pixel of the scale draw in opposite to its orientation. It is at least minimumExtent() pixels.
See also:
setMinimumExtent(), minimumExtent()
Implemented in QwtRoundScaleDraw, and QwtScaleDraw.

Check if a component is enabled
See also:

Invalidate the cache used by QwtAbstractScaleDraw::tickLabel
The cache is invalidated, when a new QwtScaleDiv is set. If the labels need to be changed. while the same QwtScaleDiv is set, QwtAbstractScaleDraw::invalidateCache needs to be called manually.

Convert a value into its representing label. The value is converted to a plain text using QLocale::system().toString(value). This method is often overloaded by applications to have individual labels.
value Value
Label string.
Reimplemented in QwtDialScaleDraw.

The same as QwtAbstractScaleDraw::tickLength(QwtScaleDiv::MajorTick).

scale division

Map how to translate between scale and pixel values

Set a minimum for the extent. The extent is calculated from the coomponents of the scale draw. In situations, where the labels are changing and the layout depends on the extent (f.e scrolling a scale), setting an upper limit as minimum extent will avoid jumps of the layout.
minExtent Minimum extent
See also:
extent(), minimumExtent()

Change the scale division
sd New scale division

Set the spacing between tick and labels. The spacing is the distance between ticks and labels. The default spacing is 4 pixels.
spacing Spacing
See also:

Set the length of the ticks
tickType Tick type
length New length
the length is limited to [0..1000]

Change the transformation of the scale
transformation New scale transformation

Get the spacing. The spacing is the distance between ticks and labels. The default spacing is 4 pixels.
See also:

Convert a value into its representing label and cache it. The conversion between value and label is called very often in the layout and painting code. Unfortunately the calculation of the label sizes might be slow (really slow for rich text in Qt4), so it's necessary to cache the labels.
font Font
value Value
Tick label

Return the length of the ticks
