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.

renderImage() is called, whenever the item has to be repainted

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.

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

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.

Invalidate the paint cache
See also:

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.

Renders an image for an area
The format of the image must be QImage::Format_Indexed8, QImage::Format_RGB32 or QImage::Format_ARGB32
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.

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.
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.
