Qwt - Qt Widgets for Technical Applications

The Qwt library contains GUI Components and utility classes which are primarily useful for programs with a technical background. Beside a framework for 2D plots it provides scales, sliders, dials, compasses, thermometers, wheels and knobs to control or display values, arrays, or ranges of type double.



Qwt is distributed under the terms of the Qwt License, Version 1.0.


Qwt 6.1 might be usable in all environments where you find Qt. It is compatible with Qt4 ( >= 4.4 ) and Qt5.
