## How to set the fixed start and enf od the axis value?

I want to get an axis like this:

The axis from 20-20K.
between 20 and 100, the step is 10
between 100-1K, the step is 100
between 1K-10K, the step is 1000
and 10K-20K, the step is 10k.

I copy some code from qwt example,like the following:
Qt Code:
`logSpace(frequency, 20000, 20,20000);...currentCurve->setSamples(frequency, amplitude, 20000);...#define qExp(x) ::exp(x)#define qAtan2(y, x) ::atan2(y, x) static void logSpace( double *array, int size, double xmin, double xmax ){    if ( ( xmin <= 0.0 ) || ( xmax <= 0.0 ) || ( size <= 0 ) )        return;     const int imax = size - 1;     array[0] = xmin;    array[imax] = xmax;     const double lxmin = log( xmin );    const double lxmax = log( xmax );    const double lstep = ( lxmax - lxmin ) / double( imax );     for ( int i = 1; i < imax; i++ )        array[i] = qExp( lxmin + double( i ) * lstep );}`
To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

But I got the following display:

, it's not from 20-20k. changed to 10-100k.

What I can do?

And all of the intervals should have the same size in pixels - like for a log10 ( see the bode example ) based scale ?

Sure, That's I want. But qwt can only display a complete major, for example, 10-100, but not 20-100

Added after 12 minutes:

It's very strange,

If set the scale range to 20-20k, it's ok.
setAxisScale(xBottom, 20,20000);

But yesterday, it did not work.
