DESCRIPTION
       The QDial class provides a rounded range control (like a speedometer or potentiometer).

       QDial is used when the user needs to control a value within a program-definable range, and
       the range either wraps around (typically, 0..359 degrees) or the dialog layout needs a
       square widget.

       Both API- and UI-wise, the dial is very similar to a slider. Indeed, when wrapping() is
       FALSE (the default) there is no real difference between a slider and a dial. They have the
       same signals, slots and member functions, all of which do the same things. Which one you
       use depends only on your taste and on the application.

       The dial initially emits valueChanged() signals continuously while the slider is being
       moved; you can make it emit the signal less often by calling setTracking(FALSE).
       dialMoved() is emitted continuously even when tracking() is FALSE.

       The slider also emits dialPressed() and dialReleased() signals when the mouse button is
       pressed and released. But note that the dial's value can change without these signals
       being emitted; the keyboard and wheel can be used to change the value.

       Unlike the slider, QDial attempts to draw a "nice" number of notches rather than one per
       lineStep(). If possible, the number of notches drawn is one per lineStep(), but if there
       aren't enough pixels to draw every one, QDial will draw every second, third etc., notch.
       notchSize() returns the number of units per notch, hopefully a multiple of lineStep();
       setNotchTarget() sets the target distance between neighbouring notches in pixels. The
       default is 3.75 pixels.

       Like the slider, the dial makes the QRangeControl functions setValue(), addLine(),
       subtractLine(), addPage() and subtractPage() available as slots.

       The dial's keyboard interface is fairly simple: The left/up and right/down arrow keys move
       by lineStep(), page up and page down by pageStep() and Home and End to minValue() and
       maxValue().

MEMBER FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION
QDial::QDial ( QWidget * parent = 0, const char * name = 0, WFlags f = 0 )
       Constructs a dial called name with parent parent. f is propagated to the QWidget
       constructor. It has the default range of a QRangeControl.

QDial::QDial ( int minValue, int maxValue, int pageStep, int value, QWidget * parent = 0, const
       char * name = 0 )
       Constructs a dial called name with parent parent. The dial's value can never be smaller
       than minValue or greater than maxValue. Its page step size is pageStep, and its initial
       value is value.

       value is forced to be within the legal range.

   Property Documentation
int lineStep
       This property holds the current line step.

       setLineStep() calls the virtual stepChange() function if the new line step is different
       from the previous setting.

       See also QRangeControl::setSteps(), pageStep, and setRange().

       Set this property's value with setLineStep() and get this property's value with
       lineStep().

int maxValue
       This property holds the current maximum value.

       When setting this property, the QDial::minValue is adjusted if necessary to ensure that
       the range remains valid.

       See also setRange().

       Set this property's value with setMaxValue() and get this property's value with
       maxValue().

int minValue
       This property holds the current minimum value.

       When setting this property, the QDial::maxValue is adjusted if necessary to ensure that
       the range remains valid.

       See also setRange().

       Set this property's value with setMinValue() and get this property's value with
       minValue().

int notchSize
       This property holds the current notch size.

       The notch size is in range control units, not pixels, and if possible it is a multiple of
       lineStep() that results in an on-screen notch size near notchTarget().

       See also notchTarget and lineStep.

       Get this property's value with notchSize().

double notchTarget
       This property holds the target number of pixels between notches.

       The notch target is the number of pixels QDial attempts to put between each notch.

       The actual size may differ from the target size.

       Set this property's value with setNotchTarget() and get this property's value with
       notchTarget().

bool notchesVisible
       This property holds whether the notches are shown.

       If TRUE, the notches are shown. If FALSE (the default) notches are not shown.

       Set this property's value with setNotchesVisible() and get this property's value with
       notchesVisible().

int pageStep
       This property holds the current page step.

       setPageStep() calls the virtual stepChange() function if the new page step is different
       from the previous setting.

       See also stepChange().

       Set this property's value with setPageStep() and get this property's value with
       pageStep().

bool tracking
       This property holds whether tracking is enabled.

       If TRUE (the default), tracking is enabled. This means that the arrow can be moved using
       the mouse; otherwise the arrow cannot be moved with the mouse.

       Set this property's value with setTracking() and get this property's value with
       tracking().

int value
       This property holds the current dial value.

       This is guaranteed to be within the range QDial::minValue..QDial::maxValue.

       See also minValue and maxValue.

       Set this property's value with setValue() and get this property's value with value().

bool wrapping
       This property holds whether wrapping is enabled.

       If TRUE, wrapping is enabled. This means that the arrow can be turned around 360o.
       Otherwise there is some space at the bottom of the dial which is skipped by the arrow.

       This property's default is FALSE.

       Set this property's value with setWrapping() and get this property's value with
       wrapping().
