View Full Version : Recommend right widget type please

18th March 2007, 20:01
I need to be able to display a set of three indicators that will be used to provide feed back to users as they are making an adjustment to a hardware device. The idea is that the hardware will be properly adjusted when the three indicators all have their reading centered. I want these to be sort of like vertical progress bars. In fact QProgressBar widgets would work ok for this if I could make them vertical but in QT3 this is not possible. I also want to be able to change the color of the indicator so that as the settings approach the correct values they will go from red to yellow to green. Anyone know of a Qt3 widget that meets these requirements? Or am I going to have to build a custom widget?

I guess you need something like a bar graph, right? Then maybe Qwt (http://qwt.sourceforge.net/) will do?

Looks like these are qwtthermo widgets. This looks like it might do the job. I will have a closer look.
