Synopsis

Functions

Detailed Description

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.
