Detailed Description

Abstract base class for map rendering implementations.

The API is designed in a way that rendering is done asynchronously, therefore the caller is not blocked while the rendering is in progress. Non-blocking operation is quite important because the rendering can take considerable amount of time.

Common use case: 0. prepare QgsMapSettings with rendering configuration (extent, layer, map size, ...)

  1. create QgsMapRendererJob subclass with QgsMapSettings instance
  2. connect to job's finished() signal
  3. call start(). Map rendering will start in background, the function immediately returns
  4. at some point, slot connected to finished() signal is called, map rendering is done

It is possible to cancel the rendering job while it is active by calling cancel() function.

The following subclasses are available:

Member Function Documentation

virtual void QgsMapRendererJob::cancel ( )
pure virtual

Stop the rendering job - does not return until the job has terminated.

Does nothing if the rendering is not active.

Implemented in QgsMapRendererCustomPainterJob, QgsMapRendererSequentialJob, and QgsMapRendererParallelJob.

QgsMapRendererJob::Errors QgsMapRendererJob::errors ( ) const

List of errors that happened during the rendering job - available when the rendering has been finished.

Definition at line 49 of file qgsmaprendererjob.cpp.

void QgsMapRendererJob::finished ( )
signal

emitted when asynchronous rendering is finished (or canceled).

virtual bool QgsMapRendererJob::isActive ( ) const
pure virtual

Tell whether the rendering job is currently running in background.

Implemented in QgsMapRendererCustomPainterJob, QgsMapRendererSequentialJob, and QgsMapRendererParallelJob.

const QgsMapSettings & QgsMapRendererJob::mapSettings ( ) const

Return map settings with which this job was started.

Returns
A QgsMapSettings instance with render settings

int QgsMapRendererJob::renderingTime ( ) const

bool QgsMapRendererJob::reprojectToLayerExtent ( const QgsCoordinateTransform ct,
bool  layerCrsGeographic,
QgsRectangle extent,
QgsRectangle r2 
)
staticprotected

Convenience function to project an extent into the layer source CRS, but also split it into two extents if it crosses the +/- 180 degree line.

Modifies the given extent to be in the source CRS coordinates, and if it was split, returns true, and also sets the contents of the r2 parameter

Definition at line 65 of file qgsmaprendererjob.cpp.

void QgsMapRendererJob::setCache ( QgsMapRendererCache cache)

Assign a cache to be used for reading and storing rendered images of individual layers.

Does not take ownership of the object.

Definition at line 54 of file qgsmaprendererjob.cpp.

void QgsMapRendererJob::setRequestedGeometryCacheForLayers ( const QStringList &  layerIds)
inline

Set which vector layers should be cached while rendering.

Note
The way how geometries are cached is really suboptimal - this method may be removed in future releases

Definition at line 124 of file qgsmaprendererjob.h.

virtual void QgsMapRendererJob::start ( )
pure virtual

Start the rendering job and immediately return.

Does nothing if the rendering is already in progress.

Implemented in QgsMapRendererCustomPainterJob, QgsMapRendererSequentialJob, and QgsMapRendererParallelJob.

virtual QgsLabelingResults* QgsMapRendererJob::takeLabelingResults ( )
pure virtual

Get pointer to internal labeling engine (in order to get access to the results)

Implemented in QgsMapRendererCustomPainterJob, QgsMapRendererSequentialJob, and QgsMapRendererParallelJob.

void QgsMapRendererJob::updateLayerGeometryCaches ( )
protected

called when rendering has finished to update all layers' geometry caches

Definition at line 327 of file qgsmaprenderercustompainterjob.cpp.

virtual void QgsMapRendererJob::waitForFinished ( )
pure virtual

Block until the job has finished.

Implemented in QgsMapRendererCustomPainterJob, QgsMapRendererSequentialJob, and QgsMapRendererParallelJob.
