Package structure

The silx.gui.plot package provides plot widgets. This package is structured as follows.

PlotWidget and PlotWindow provides the user API. PlotWidget is a Qt widget (actually a QMainWindow) displaying a 1D, 2D plot area. It provides different interaction modes. PlotWindow is a Qt widget (actually a QMainWindow) which adds a set of toolbar buttons and associated functionalities to PlotWidget. The toolbar QActions are implemented in actions.

Plot, PlotEvents and PlotInteraction implement the plotting API regardless of the rendering backend and regardless of its integration in Qt. The plotting API in defined in Plot. The different interaction modes (zoom, drawing, pan) are implemented in PlotInteraction. Each interaction mode is implemented with a state machine structure (implemented in Interaction). The different events emitted by Plot and by the interaction modes are created with helper functions defined in PlotEvents.

The PlotWindow uses additional widgets:

The widgets also use the following miscellaneous modules:

The backends package provide the implementation of the rendering used by the Plot. It contains: backends.BackendBase defines the API any plot backend should provide in BackendBase. backends.BackendMatplotlib implements a matplotlib backend. The backends.BackendMatplotlib the provides two classes:

The OpenGL-based backend is implemented in the backends.BackendOpenGL module and the backends.glutils package which provides the different primitives used for rendering and interaction. It is based on silx.gui._glutils, PyOpenGL and OpenGL >= 2.1.

This module provides an implementation of state machines for interaction.

Sample code of a state machine with two states (‘idle’ and ‘active’) with transitions on left button press/release:

from silx.gui.plot.Interaction import *

class SampleStateMachine(StateMachine):

    class Idle(State):
        def onPress(self, x, y, btn):
            if btn == LEFT_BTN:
                self.goto('active')

    class Active(State):
        def enterState(self):
            print('Enabled')  # Handle enter active state here

        def leaveState(self):
            print('Disabled')  # Handle leave active state here

        def onRelease(self, x, y, btn):
            if btn == LEFT_BTN:
                self.goto('idle')

def __init__(self):
    # State machine has 2 states
    states = {
        'idle': SampleStateMachine.Idle,
        'active': SampleStateMachine.Active
    }
    super(TwoStates, self).__init__(states, 'idle')
    # idle is the initial state

stateMachine = SampleStateMachine()

# Triggers a transition to the Active state:
stateMachine.handleEvent('press', 0, 0, LEFT_BTN)

# Triggers a transition to the Idle state:
stateMachine.handleEvent('release', 0, 0, LEFT_BTN)

See ClickOrDrag for another example of a state machine.

Parameters:
  • vMin (float) – The min value on the axis
  • vMax (float) – The max value on the axis
  • axisLength (float) – The length of the axis.
  • tickDensity (float) – The density of ticks along the axis.
Returns:

log10 of min, max, increment value of tick positions and number of fractional digit to show

Return type:

tuple

computeLogSubTicks(ticks, lowBound, highBound)[source]

Return the sub ticks for the log scale for all given ticks if subtick is in [lowBound, highBound]

Parameters:
  • ticks – log10 of the ticks
  • lowBound – the lower boundary of ticks
  • highBound – the higher boundary of ticks
Returns:

all the sub ticks contained in ticks (log10)
