Detailed Description

The QCandlestickSeries class presents data as candlesticks.

This class acts as a container for single candlestick items. Each item is drawn to its own category when using QBarCategoryAxis. QDateTimeAxis and QValueAxis can be used as alternatives to QBarCategoryAxis. In this case, each candlestick item is drawn according to its timestamp value.

Note: The timestamps must be unique within a QCandlestickSeries. When using QBarCategoryAxis, only the first one of the candlestick items sharing a timestamp is drawn. If the chart includes multiple instances of QCandlestickSeries, items from different series sharing a timestamp are drawn to the same category. When using QValueAxis or QDateTimeAxis, candlestick items sharing a timestamp will overlap each other.

See the candlestick chart example to learn how to create a candlestick chart.

See also QCandlestickSet, QBarCategoryAxis, QDateTimeAxis, and QValueAxis.

Property Documentation

bodyOutlineVisible : bool

This property holds the visibility of the candlestick body outline.

Access functions:

bool bodyOutlineVisible() const
void setBodyOutlineVisible(bool bodyOutlineVisible)

Notifier signal:

bodyWidth : qreal

This property holds the relative width of the candlestick item within its own slot, in the range from 0.0 to 1.0.

Values outside this range are clamped to 0.0 or 1.0.

Access functions:

qreal bodyWidth() const
void setBodyWidth(qreal bodyWidth)

Notifier signal:

brush : QBrush

This property holds the brush used to fill the candlestick items.

Access functions:

QBrush brush() const
void setBrush(const QBrush &brush)

Notifier signal:

void brushChanged()

capsVisible : bool

This property holds the visibility of the caps.

Access functions:

bool capsVisible() const
void setCapsVisible(bool capsVisible)

Notifier signal:

capsWidth : qreal

This property holds the relative width of the caps within a candlestick, in the range from 0.0 to 1.0.

Values outside this range are clamped to 0.0 or 1.0.

Access functions:

qreal capsWidth() const
void setCapsWidth(qreal capsWidth)

Notifier signal:

count : const int

This property holds the number of candlestick items in a series.

Access functions:

int count() const

Notifier signal:

void countChanged()

decreasingColor : QColor

This property holds the color of the decreasing candlestick item body.

A candlestick is decreasing when its open value is higher than the close value. By default, this property is set to the brush color with the alpha channel set to 128. The default color is used also when the property is set to an invalid color value.

Access functions:

QColor decreasingColor() const
void setDecreasingColor(const QColor &decreasingColor)

Notifier signal:

increasingColor : QColor

This property holds the color of the increasing candlestick item body.

A candlestick is increasing when its close value is higher than the open value. By default, this property is set to the brush color. The default color is used also when the property is set to an invalid color value.

Access functions:

QColor increasingColor() const
void setIncreasingColor(const QColor &increasingColor)

Notifier signal:

maximumColumnWidth : qreal

This property holds the maximum width of the candlestick items in pixels. Setting a negative value means there is no maximum width. All negative values are converted to -1.0.

Access functions:

qreal maximumColumnWidth() const
void setMaximumColumnWidth(qreal maximumColumnWidth)

Notifier signal:

minimumColumnWidth : qreal

This property holds the minimum width of the candlestick items in pixels. Setting a negative value means there is no minimum width. All negative values are converted to -1.0.

Access functions:

qreal minimumColumnWidth() const
void setMinimumColumnWidth(qreal minimumColumnWidth)

Notifier signal:

pen : QPen

This property holds the pen used to draw the lines of the candlestick items.

Access functions:

QPen pen() const
void setPen(const QPen &pen)

Notifier signal:

void penChanged()

Member Function Documentation

QCandlestickSeries::QCandlestickSeries(QObject *parent = nullptr)

Constructs an empty QCandlestickSeries. The parent is optional.

[virtual] QCandlestickSeries::~QCandlestickSeries()

Destroys the series. Removes the series from the chart.

bool QCandlestickSeries::append(QCandlestickSet *set)

Adds a single candlestick item specified by set to the series and takes ownership of it. If the item is null or it is already in the series, it is not appended. Returns true if appending succeeded, false otherwise.

bool QCandlestickSeries::append(const QList<QCandlestickSet *> &sets)

Adds a list of candlestick items specified by sets to the series and takes ownership of it. If any of the items are null, already belong to the series, or appear in the list more than once, nothing is appended. Returns true if all items were appended successfully, false otherwise.

[signal] void QCandlestickSeries::bodyOutlineVisibilityChanged()

This signal is emitted when the visibility of the candlestick item body outline changes.

Note: Notifier signal for property bodyOutlineVisible.

See also bodyOutlineVisible.

[signal] void QCandlestickSeries::bodyWidthChanged()

This signal is emitted when the candlestick item width changes.

Note: Notifier signal for property bodyWidth.

See also bodyWidth.

[signal] void QCandlestickSeries::brushChanged()

This signal is emitted when the candlestick item brush changes.

Note: Notifier signal for property brush.

See also brush.

[signal] void QCandlestickSeries::candlestickSetsAdded(const QList<QCandlestickSet *> &sets)

This signal is emitted when the candlestick items specified by sets are added to the series.

[signal] void QCandlestickSeries::candlestickSetsRemoved(const QList<QCandlestickSet *> &sets)

This signal is emitted when the candlestick items specified by sets are removed from the series.

[signal] void QCandlestickSeries::capsVisibilityChanged()

This signal is emitted when the visibility of the candlestick item caps changes.

Note: Notifier signal for property capsVisible.

See also capsVisible.
