Synopsis#

Properties#

  • labelFormatᅟ - Label format of the axis

  • maxᅟ - Maximum value on the axis

  • minᅟ - Minimum value on the axis

  • minorTickCountᅟ - Number of minor tick marks on the axis. This indicates how many grid lines are drawn between major ticks on the chart. Labels are not drawn for minor ticks. The default value is 0

  • tickAnchorᅟ - Base value where the dynamically placed tick marks and labels are started from

  • tickCountᅟ - Number of tick marks on the axis. This indicates how many grid lines are drawn on the chart. The default value is 5, and the number cannot be less than 2

  • tickIntervalᅟ - Interval between dynamically placed tick marks and labels

  • tickTypeᅟ - Positioning method of tick and labels

Detailed Description#

A value axis can be set up to show an axis line with tick marks, grid lines, and shades. The values on the axis are drawn at the positions of tick marks.

The following example code illustrates how to use the QValueAxis class:

QChartView *chartView = new QChartView;
QLineSeries *series = new QLineSeries;
// ...
chartView->chart()->addSeries(series);

QValueAxis *axisX = new QValueAxis;
axisX->setRange(10, 20.5);
axisX->setTickCount(10);
axisX->setLabelFormat("%.2f");
chartView->chart()->setAxisX(axisX, series);
class TickType#

This enum describes how the ticks and labels are positioned on the axis.

Constant

Description

QValueAxis.TicksDynamic

Ticks are placed according to tickAnchor and tickInterval values.

QValueAxis.TicksFixed

Ticks are placed evenly across the axis range. The tickCount value specifies the number of ticks.

Note

Properties can be used directly when from __feature__ import true_property is used or via accessor functions otherwise.

property labelFormatᅟ: str#

This property holds The label format of the axis..

The format string supports the following conversion specifiers, length modifiers, and flags provided by printf() in the standard C++ library: d, i, o, x, X, f, F, e, E, g, G, c.

If localizeNumbers is true, the supported specifiers are limited to: d, e, E, f, g, G, and i. Also, only the precision modifier is supported. The rest of the formatting comes from the default QLocale of the application.

Access functions:
property maxᅟ: float#

This property holds The maximum value on the axis..

When setting this property, the minimum value is adjusted if necessary, to ensure that the range remains valid.

Access functions:
property minᅟ: float#

This property holds The minimum value on the axis..

When setting this property, the maximum value is adjusted if necessary, to ensure that the range remains valid.

Access functions:
property minorTickCountᅟ: int#

This property holds The number of minor tick marks on the axis. This indicates how many grid lines are drawn between major ticks on the chart. Labels are not drawn for minor ticks. The default value is 0..

Access functions:
property tickAnchorᅟ: float#

This property holds The base value where the dynamically placed tick marks and labels are started from..

Access functions:
property tickCountᅟ: int#

This property holds The number of tick marks on the axis. This indicates how many grid lines are drawn on the chart. The default value is 5, and the number cannot be less than 2..

Access functions:
property tickIntervalᅟ: float#

This property holds The interval between dynamically placed tick marks and labels..

Access functions:
property tickTypeᅟ: QValueAxis.TickType#

This property holds The positioning method of tick and labels..

Access functions:
__init__([parent=None])#
Parameters:

parentQObject

Constructs an axis object that is a child of parent.

applyNiceNumbers()#

Modifies the current range and number of tick marks on the axis to look nice. The algorithm considers numbers that can be expressed as a form of 1*10^n, 2* 10^n, or 5*10^n to be nice numbers. These numbers are used for setting spacing for the tick marks.
