Detailed Description

Proxy class for presenting data in item models with Q3DScatter.

QItemModelScatterDataProxy allows you to use QAbstractItemModel derived models as a data source for Q3DScatter. It maps roles of QAbstractItemModel to the XYZ-values of Q3DScatter points.

The data is resolved asynchronously whenever the mapping or the model changes. QScatterDataProxy::arrayReset() is emitted when the data has been resolved. However, inserts, removes, and single data item changes after the model initialization are resolved synchronously, unless the same frame also contains a change that causes the whole model to be resolved.

Mapping ignores rows and columns of the QAbstractItemModel and treats all items equally. It requires the model to provide roles for the data items that can be mapped to X, Y, and Z-values for the scatter points.

For example, assume that you have a custom QAbstractItemModel for storing various measurements done on material samples, providing data for roles such as "density", "hardness", and "conductivity". You could visualize these properties on a scatter graph using this proxy:

// Map "density" value to X-axis, "hardness" to Y-axis and "conductivity" to Z-axis.
QItemModelScatterDataProxy *proxy = new QItemModelScatterDataProxy(customModel,
                                                                   QStringLiteral("density"),
                                                                   QStringLiteral("hardness"),
                                                                   QStringLiteral("conductivity"));

If the fields of the model do not contain the data in the exact format you need, you can specify a search pattern regular expression and a replace rule for each role to get the value in a format you need. For more information how the replace using regular expressions works, see QString::replace(const QRegExp &rx, const QString &after) function documentation. Note that using regular expressions has an impact on the performance, so it's more efficient to utilize item models where doing search and replace is not necessary to get the desired values.

For example about using the search patterns in conjunction with the roles, see ItemModelBarDataProxy usage in Qt Quick 2 Bars Example.

Property Documentation

itemModel : QAbstractItemModel *

This property holds the item model to use as a data source for a 3D scatter series.

QAbstractItemModel *itemModel() const
void setItemModel(QAbstractItemModel *itemModel)

Notifier signal:

void itemModelChanged(const QAbstractItemModel *itemModel)

rotationRole : QString

This property holds the item model role to map into item rotation.

The model may supply the value for rotation as either variant that is directly convertible to QQuaternion, or as one of the string representations: "scalar,x,y,z" or "@angle,x,y,z". The first will construct the quaternion directly with given values, and the second one will construct the quaternion using QQuaternion::fromAxisAndAngle() method.

Notifier signal:

void rotationRoleChanged(const QString &role)

rotationRolePattern : QRegExp

This property holds whether a search and replace is done on the value mapped by the rotation role before it is used as item rotation.
