The Length class is used to represent a length (for example 12.75 millimeters)
This class is used to represent ALL length values in Symbols, Schematics, Footprints, Layouts and so on. You should never use another length type, like integer or float! It's very important to have a consistent length type over the whole project.
All lengths are stored in the integer base type librepcb::LengthBase_t. The internal unit is always nanometers, but this class provides also some converting methods to other units. Read the documentation of librepcb::LengthBase_t for more details.

gridInterval  See mapToGrid() 
RangeError  If the argument is out of range, a RangeError exception will be thrown 
Get a Length object with a specific length and map it to a specific grid.
This method can be used to create a Length object from a QString which contains a floating point number in millimeters, like QString("123.456") for 123.456 millimeters. The string must not depend on the locale settings (see QLocale), it have always to represent a number in the "C" locale. The maximum count of decimals after the decimal point is 6, because the 6th decimal represents one nanometer.
