Ideas to create a liquid container meter (bar) GUI - SOLVED

  • Hello all,
    I need to create a bar that will represent liquid in a container (displayed as a vertical bar)
    on the bar there should be horizontal lines with text at the left indicating the level (levels are variable,
    not fixed levels)

    I was thinking of using QProgressBar but it doesn't have a way of displaying multiple levels, the horizontal lines.

    any ideas on how to approach this?


  • Custom widget with custom drawing?

  • I would first look into existing alternatives. Qwt has some widgets that seem useful, and there is stuff to be found on (widgets section) as well.

  • well, it seems that Qwt have a good starting point, they have a progress bar with levels, i can subclass and get it done, thanks!
