guiqwt.curve

The curve module provides curve-related objects:

CurveItem and GridItem objects are plot items (derived from QwtPlotItem) that may be displayed on a 2D plotting widget like guiqwt.curve.CurvePlot or guiqwt.image.ImagePlot.

Examples

Create a basic curve plotting widget:
  • before creating any widget, a QApplication must be instantiated (that is a Qt internal requirement):
>>> import guidata
>>> app = guidata.qapplication()
  • that is mostly equivalent to the following (the only difference is that the guidata helper function also installs the Qt translation corresponding to the system locale):
>>> from PyQt4.QtGui import QApplication
>>> app = QApplication([])
  • now that a QApplication object exists, we may create the plotting widget:
>>> from guiqwt.curve import CurvePlot
>>> plot = CurvePlot(title="Example", xlabel="X", ylabel="Y")
Create a curve item:
  • from the associated plot item class (e.g. ErrorBarCurveItem to create a curve with error bars): the item properties are then assigned by creating the appropriate style parameters object (e.g. guiqwt.styles.ErrorBarParam)
>>> from guiqwt.curve import CurveItem
>>> from guiqwt.styles import CurveParam
>>> param = CurveParam()
>>> param.label = 'My curve'
>>> curve = CurveItem(param)
>>> curve.set_data(x, y)
  • or using the plot item builder (see guiqwt.builder.make()):
>>> from guiqwt.builder import make
>>> curve = make.curve(x, y, title='My curve')

Attach the curve to the plotting widget:

>>> plot.add_item(curve)

Display the plotting widget:

>>> plot.show()
>>> app.exec_()

Parameters:item (qwt.plot.QwtPlotItem) – PlotItem

See also

removeItem()

CurvePlot.insertLegend(legend, pos=None, ratio=-1)

Insert a legend

If the position legend is QwtPlot.LeftLegend or QwtPlot.RightLegend the legend will be organized in one column from top to down. Otherwise the legend items will be placed in a table with a best fit number of columns from left to right.

insertLegend() will set the plot widget as parent for the legend. The legend will be deleted in the destructor of the plot or when another legend is inserted.

Legends, that are not inserted into the layout of the plot widget need to connect to the legendDataChanged() signal. Calling updateLegend() initiates this signal for an initial update. When the application code wants to implement its own layout this also needs to be done for rendering plots to a document ( see QwtPlotRenderer ).

Parameters:
  • legend (qwt.legend.QwtAbstractLegend) – Legend
  • pos (QwtPlot.LegendPosition) – The legend’s position.
  • ratio (float) – Ratio between legend and the bounding rectangle of title, canvas and axes

Note

For top/left position the number of columns will be limited to 1, otherwise it will be set to unlimited.

Note

The legend will be shrunk if it would need more space than the given ratio. The ratio is limited to ]0.0 .. 1.0]. In case of <= 0.0 it will be reset to the default ratio. The default vertical/horizontal ratio is 0.33/0.5.

CurvePlot.invTransform(axisId, pos)

Warning

Parameters:autoDelete (bool) – enable/disable
CurvePlot.setAutoFillBackground(bool)
CurvePlot.setAutoReplot(tf=True)

Set or reset the autoReplot option

If the autoReplot option is set, the plot will be updated implicitly by manipulating member functions. Since this may be time-consuming, it is recommended to leave this option switched off and call replot() explicitly if necessary.

The autoReplot option is set to false by default, which means that the user has to call replot() in order to make changes visible.

Parameters:tf (bool) – True or False. Defaults to True.

CurvePlot.setAxisScale(axisId, min_, max_, stepSize=0)

Disable autoscaling and specify a fixed scale for a selected axis.

In updateAxes() the scale engine calculates a scale division from the specified parameters, that will be assigned to the scale widget. So updates of the scale widget usually happen delayed with the next replot.

Parameters:
  • axisId (int) – Axis index
  • min (float) – Minimum of the scale
  • max (float) – Maximum of the scale
  • stepSize (float) – Major step size. If <code>step == 0</code>, the step size is calculated automatically using the maxMajor setting.

CurvePlot.setAxisScaleDiv(axisId, scaleDiv)

Disable autoscaling and specify a fixed scale for a selected axis.

The scale division will be stored locally only until the next call of updateAxes(). So updates of the scale widget usually happen delayed with the next replot.

Parameters:
  • axisId (int) – Axis index
  • scaleDiv (qwt.scale_div.QwtScaleDiv) – Scale division
CurvePlot.setAxisScaleDraw(axisId, scaleDraw)

Set a scale draw

Parameters:
  • axisId (int) – Axis index

CurvePlot.updateAxes()

Rebuild the axes scales

In case of autoscaling the boundaries of a scale are calculated from the bounding rectangles of all plot items, having the QwtPlotItem.AutoScale flag enabled (QwtScaleEngine.autoScale()). Then a scale division is calculated (QwtScaleEngine.didvideScale()) and assigned to scale widget.

When the scale boundaries have been assigned with setAxisScale() a scale division is calculated (QwtScaleEngine.didvideScale()) for this interval and assigned to the scale widget.

When the scale has been set explicitly by setAxisScaleDiv() the locally stored scale division gets assigned to the scale widget.

The scale widget indicates modifications by emitting a QwtScaleWidget.scaleDivChanged() signal.

updateAxes() is usually called by replot().

setAxisAutoScale(), setAxisScale(), setAxisScaleDiv(), replot(), QwtPlotItem.boundingRect()

Warning

setAxis has been removed in Qwt6: please use setAxes() instead

setBaseline(value)

Set the value of the baseline

The baseline is needed for filling the curve with a brush or the Sticks drawing style.

The interpretation of the baseline depends on the orientation(). With Qt.Horizontal, the baseline is interpreted as a horizontal line at y = baseline(), with Qt.Vertical, it is interpreted as a vertical line at x = baseline().

The default value is 0.0.

Parameters:value (float) – Value of the baseline
setBrush(brush)

Assign a brush.

In case of brush.style() != QBrush.NoBrush and style() != QwtPlotCurve.Sticks the area between the curve and the baseline will be filled.

In case not brush.color().isValid() the area will be filled by pen.color(). The fill algorithm simply connects the first and the last curve point to the baseline. So the curve data has to be sorted (ascending or descending).

Parameters:brush (QBrush or QColor) – New brush
setCurveAttribute(attribute, on=True)

Specify an attribute for drawing the curve

Supported curve attributes:

  • QwtPlotCurve.Inverted
Parameters:
  • attribute (int) – Curve attribute
  • on (bool) – On/Off
setData(*args, **kwargs)

Initialize data with a series data object or an array of points.

setData(data):
Parameters:data (qwt.plot_series.QwtSeriesData) – Series data (e.g. QwtPointArrayData instance)
setData(xData, yData, [size=None], [finite=True]):

Initialize data with x and y arrays.

This signature was removed in Qwt6 and is temporarily maintained here to ensure compatibility with Qwt5.

Same as setSamples(x, y, [size=None], [finite=True])

Parameters:
  • x – List/array of x values
  • y – List/array of y values
  • size (int or None) – size of xData and yData
  • finite (bool) – if True, keep only finite array elements (remove all infinity and not a number values), otherwise do not filter array elements

The default setting is 8x8 pixels

Parameters:size (QSize) – Size

The orientation() might be used in specific way by a plot item. F.e. a QwtPlotCurve uses it to identify how to display the curve int QwtPlotCurve.Steps or QwtPlotCurve.Sticks style.

See also

:py:meth`orientation()`

setPen(*args)

Build and/or assign a pen, depending on the arguments.

setPen(color, width, style)

setBaseline(value)

Set the value of the baseline

The baseline is needed for filling the curve with a brush or the Sticks drawing style.

The interpretation of the baseline depends on the orientation(). With Qt.Horizontal, the baseline is interpreted as a horizontal line at y = baseline(), with Qt.Vertical, it is interpreted as a vertical line at x = baseline().

The default value is 0.0.

Parameters:value (float) – Value of the baseline

Assign a brush.

In case of brush.style() != QBrush.NoBrush and style() != QwtPlotCurve.Sticks the area between the curve and the baseline will be filled.

In case not brush.color().isValid() the area will be filled by pen.color(). The fill algorithm simply connects the first and the last curve point to the baseline. So the curve data has to be sorted (ascending or descending).

Parameters:brush (QBrush or QColor) – New brush

Supported curve attributes:

  • QwtPlotCurve.Inverted
Parameters:

Parameters:
  • x – List/array of x values
  • y – List/array of y values
  • size (int or None) – size of xData and yData
