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 PySide6.QtCharts.QValueAxis([parent=None])#
Parameters

parentPySide6.QtCore.QObject

Constructs an axis object that is a child of parent.

PySide6.QtCharts.QValueAxis.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.

PySide6.QtCharts.QValueAxis.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.

PySide6.QtCharts.QValueAxis.labelFormat()#
Return type

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.
