    Default Sync charts with custom scale.

    Hi. I have two charts with one common axis. The axis is time scale. I need to show time in “hh:mm:ss.zzz” format. So I created inheritor from QwtDrawScale and overloaded method label() (like in CPUplot example). I assigned objects of this inheritor to both of the charts. The second chart is located below the first, so I don’t want to show xBottom axis for the first chart. It means that I disable the axis for the plot. But in this case lines of the grids are not matched. I guess I should do something with QwtScaleDiv class, but I can’t understand what. Thank you for any help.

    Check the plotmatrix example.

    Do you mean assign QwtScaleDiv from lower plot to upper plot? I tried it and there is a result:

    If I disable the axis of the upper chart I have:

    But I need:

    Without labels under first chart.

    Could you explain, why the grids doesn't match when I hide labels?

    The space, that is needed for the tick labels, has an effect on the position of the ticks. On the left side it is possible to move parts of the label below the left scale, but as there is none on the right ...
    How to solve it depends on the details of your application: f.e you could choose an alignment like in the cpuplot example, where the part of the tick labels right from the tick is smaller, than the canvas margin.

    I figured out from Qwt sources that grid drawing depends on QwtScaleMap object. So I decided to override "canvasMap" method of QwtPlot class and pass the scale widget of another plot with visible scale.
    Qt Code:
    1. void OneAxisDisabledPlot::setDisabledAxis(int axisId, QwtScaleWidget* baseWidget)
    2. {
    3. enableAxis(axisId, false);
    4. m_disabledAxis = axisId;
    5. m_baseScaleWidget = baseWidget;
    6. }
    7.  
    8. bool OneAxisDisabledPlot::isAxisDisabled(int axisId) const
    9. {
    10. return m_disabledAxis == axisId;
    11. }
    12.  
    13. QwtScaleMap OneAxisDisabledPlot::canvasMap(int axisId) const
    14. {
    15. if(!canvas())
    16. return map;
    17.  
    18. map.setTransformation(axisScaleEngine(axisId)->transformation());
    19.  
    20. const QwtScaleDiv &sd = axisScaleDiv(axisId);
    21. map.setScaleInterval(sd.lowerBound(), sd.upperBound());
    22. const QwtScaleWidget *s = isAxisDisabled(axisId) ? m_baseScaleWidget : axisWidget(axisId);
    23. if(axisEnabled(axisId) || isAxisDisabled(axisId))
    24. {
    25. if(axisId == yLeft || axisId == yRight)
    26. {
    27. double y = s->y() + s->startBorderDist() - canvas()->y();
    28. double h = s->height() - s->startBorderDist() - s->endBorderDist();
    29. map.setPaintInterval(y + h, y);
    30. }
    31. else
    32. {
    33. double x = s->x() + s->startBorderDist() - canvas()->x();
    34. double w = s->width() - s->startBorderDist() - s->endBorderDist();
    35. map.setPaintInterval(x, x + w);
    36. }
    37. }
    38. else
    39. {
    40. const QRect &canvasRect = canvas()->contentsRect();
    41. if(axisId == yLeft || axisId == yRight)
    42. {
    43. int top = 0;
    44. if(!plotLayout()->alignCanvasToScale(xTop))
    45. top = plotLayout()->canvasMargin(xTop);
    46.  
    47. int bottom = 0;
    48. if(!plotLayout()->alignCanvasToScale(xBottom))
    49. bottom = plotLayout()->canvasMargin(xBottom);
    50.  
    51. map.setPaintInterval(canvasRect.bottom() - bottom,
    52. canvasRect.top() + top);
    53. }
    54. else
    55. {
    56. int left = 0;
    57. if(!plotLayout()->alignCanvasToScale(yLeft))
    58. left = plotLayout()->canvasMargin(yLeft);
    59.  
    60. int right = 0;
    61. if(!plotLayout()->alignCanvasToScale(yRight))
    62. right = plotLayout()->canvasMargin(yRight);
    63.  
    64. map.setPaintInterval(canvasRect.left() + left,
    65. canvasRect.right() - right);
    66. }
    67. }
    68.  
    69. return map;
    70. }
