Detailed Description

Base class for plugin layers.

These can be implemented by plugins and registered in QgsPluginLayerRegistry.

In order to be readable from project files, they should set these attributes in layer DOM node: "type" = "plugin" "name" = "your_layer_type"

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

QgsPluginLayer::QgsPluginLayer ( QString  layerType,
QString  layerName = QString() 
)

Member Function Documentation

QgsMapLayerRenderer * QgsPluginLayer::createMapRenderer ( QgsRenderContext rendererContext)
virtual

Return new instance of QgsMapLayerRenderer that will be used for rendering of given context.

The default implementation returns map layer renderer which just calls draw(). This may work, but it is unsafe for multi-threaded rendering because of the run conditions that may happen (e.g. something is changed in the layer while it is being rendered).

Note
added in 2.4

Reimplemented from QgsMapLayer.

QgsLegendSymbologyList QgsPluginLayer::legendSymbologyItems ( const QSize &  iconSize)
virtual

return a list of symbology items for the legend (defult implementation returns nothing)

Note
Added in v2.1
QString QgsPluginLayer::pluginLayerType ( )

return plugin layer type (the same as used in QgsPluginLayerRegistry)

void QgsPluginLayer::setExtent ( const QgsRectangle rect)
virtual

Set the extent.

Reimplemented from QgsMapLayer.
