QGIS API Documentation  3.13.0-Master (788156190c)
Backwards Incompatible Changes

Table of Contents

The API of QGIS libraries is allowed to be changed just between major versions of QGIS. For example, there are various planned backwards incompatible changes between QGIS 1.8 and 2.0 because the version 2.0 is a new major version. After a release of a major version of QGIS (e.g. 2.0) the developer team is committed to maintain stable API for all subsequent minor releases (2.2, 2.4, ...). That roughly means we do not rename classes and methods, remove them nor change their semantics. Existing code should keep working when the user updates QGIS to another minor version (e.g. from 2.0 to 2.2), so all extensions of existing classes should be done in a manner that third party developers do not need to adjust their code to work properly with newer QGIS releases.

Sometimes, however, we may need to break the API as a result of some code changes. These cases should be only exceptions and they should happen only after consideration and agreement of the development team. Backwards incompatible changes with too big impact should be deferred to a major version release.

This page tries to maintain a list with incompatible changes that happened in previous releases.

QGIS 3.4

QgsMapToPixel

  • toMapCoordinatesF have been renamed to toMapCoordinates (as a double overload) for C++ only (Python keeps toMapCoordinatesF).
  • toMapPoint has been deprecated in favor of toMapCoordinates.

QGIS 3.0

Version 3.0 brings changes to many underlying dependencies which QGIS is built upon. Any existing PyQGIS code will need to be updated to address the changes made within these libraries.

Python 3.0

QGIS 3.0 introduces a move to Python 3. This version brings many changes to both the Python language and individual Python libraries. A good place to start learning about the changes involved, and how to port your code to Python 3, is available in the official Python documentation: Porting Python 2 Code to Python 3.

Qt 5

QGIS 3.0 is based off version 5 of the underlying Qt libraries. Many changes and API breaks were introduced in Qt5. While it is c++ specific, a good place to read about the major changes introduced in Qt5 is at the Qt docs: C++ API changes

PyQt 5

Together with the Python and Qt version changes, the PyQt libraries which expose Qt classes to Python have also had their version bumped to PyQt 5. The changes introduced in PyQt 5 and the steps required to upgrade existing code are summarised at: Differences Between PyQt4 and PyQt5

  • Network analysis library has been merged into analysis library

Composer

All composer related methods have been removed from the public API and Python bindings. These classes have been replaced with the new layouts engine, based on QgsLayout, QgsLayoutItem, and the other related classes.

Labeling

Labeling of vector layers used to be configured in 2.x using setCustomProperties() method with various lots of options prefixed with "labeling" keyword, for example: layer.setCustomProperties("labeling/fieldName", "my_field"). While 2.x projects and .qml files containing configuration using custom properties will still work, calling these API methods will have no effect on layer's labeling configuration anymore: all settings are now stored in objects derived from QgsAbstractVectorLayerLabeling:

The current configuration of labeling can be queried with vector layer's labeling() method and modified with setLabeling() method.

Data Providers

  • Many methods in QgsDataProvider, QgsVectorDataProvider and QgsRasterDataProvider have been made const-correct. This has no effect on PyQGIS code, but c++ code implementing third-party providers will need to update the signatures of these methods to match. Affected methods are:
  • Many protected member variables have been wrapped in setter/getter methods. This should generally only affect 3rd party providers
    • mCacheMinMaxDirty: use clearMinMaxCache()
    • mNativeTypes: use setNativeTypes()
    • mAttrPalIndexName: overwrite palAttributeIndexNames()

  • The distance unit types QGis::UnitType (including QGis::Meters, QGis::Feet, QGis::Degrees, QGis::NauticalMiles, QGis::Kilometers, QGis::Yards, QGis::Miles and QGis::UnknownUnit have been moved to QgsUnitTypes::DistanceUnit. Some of these unit types have also been renamed - see the notes on QgsUnitTypes below. All methods which accepted QGis::UnitType parameters have been updated to take QgsUnitTypes::DistanceUnit instead.
  • The unit handling methods toLiteral, fromLiteral, tr, fromTr, fromUnitToUnitFactor have been removed. Their corresponding counterparts in QgsUnitTypes should be used instead.

Very important: Testing that a feature has a geometry is now done using the new hasGeometry() method. Any code which compares QgsFeature::geometry() to None will need to be modified, as the method will return an empty geometry if the feature has no geometry.

QgsGeometry

  • All QgsGeometry methods now accept geometry references instead of pointers, and return a QgsGeometry value instead of a pointer. The biggest impact with this change is that PyQGIS code should not compare a geometry result to None, but instead either use a boolean test (if g.buffer(10):) or explicitly use the isNull() method to determine if a geometry is valid.
  • The QgsAbstractGeometry getter was renamed from geometry() to get(), and the setter from setGeometry() to set(). This was done to avoid the awkward "feature.geometry().geometry()" expression! Note that calling QgsGeometry.get() can force a detach and full clone of the geometry, so it is preferable to use the faster QgsGeometry::constGet() method if the geometry is not being modified.
  • isEmpty() was renamed to isNull() to differentiate a missing geometry from a geometry which is empty (eg an empty geometry collection)
  • wkbSize() was removed. WKB representation is no longer cached within QgsGeometry

  • reshapeGeometry() expects QgsLineString as a parameter instead of a list of 2D points (so that it can support 3D geometries)
  • vertexAt() now returns a QgsPoint (previously QgsPointV2) instead of a QgsPointXY (previously QgsPoint)
  • fromPolyline() now requires a list of QgsPoint objects, instead of QgsPointXY 2d points. A new method fromPolylineXY was added which uses the old list of 2d QgsPointXY objects. Using the newer method with QgsPoint is greatly preferred, as it maintains Z or M dimensions from the input points and is more efficient.
  • fromPoint() was renamed to fromPointXY()
  • fromMultiPoint() was renamed to fromMultiPointXY()
  • fromMultiPolyline() was renamed to fromMultiPolylineXY()
  • fromPolygon() was renamed to fromPolygonXY()

  • splitFeatured() now returns QgsGeometry::OperationResult enum, integer representation of returned values may have changed
  • pendingFields() was dropped. Use fields() instead.
  • pendingAllAttributesList() was dropped. Use allAttributes() instead.
  • pendingPkAttributesList() and pkAttributeList() were dropped. Use primaryKeyAttributes() instead.
  • pendingFeatureCount() was dropped. Use featureCount() instead.
  • getValues() and getDoubleValues() functions moved to QgsVectorLayerUtils.

QgsVectorLayerEditBuffer

  • changeGeometry() now accepts a geometry reference, not a pointer.
  • The geometryChanged() signal now uses a const QgsGeometry reference.
  • The addedFeatures(), changedAttributeValues(), deletedAttributeIds(), addedAttributes(), changedGeometries() and deletedFeatureIds() functions now return values, not references. This has no effect on PyQGIS code, but c++ plugins calling these methods will need to be updated.

QgsVectorLayerEditUtils

  • addTopologicalPoints() now accepts a geometry reference, not a pointer.
  • insertSegmentVerticesForSnap() has been removed.
  • cache() has been removed.

QgsVectorLayerExporter (renamed from QgsVectorLayerImport)

  • QgsVectorLayerExporter now takes references instead of pointers to QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem objects. Since QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem is now implicitly shared, using references to QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem rather than pointers makes for more robust, safer code. Use an invalid (default constructed) QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem in code which previously passed a null pointer to QgsVectorLayerImport.
  • importLayer was renamed to exportLayer
  • The unused skipAttributeCreation in exportLayer() was removed
  • The QProgressDialog argument in exportLayer() was changed to a QgsFeedback object.
  • The unused QProgressDialog argument in the QgsVectorLayerImport was removed
  • ImportError was renamed to ExportError
  • The unused enum value ErrDriverNotFound was removed
  • hasError() was renamed to errorCode()
  • ErrUserCancelled (ExportError enum value) has been renamed to ErrUserCanceled

QgsVectorLayerJoinBuffer

  • readXml() does not resolve layer IDs to layers anymore. You need to call resolveReferences() afterwards.

QgsVectorLayerUndoCommand

QgsVisibilityPresetCollection

  • Has been renamed to QgsMapThemeCollection
  • The nested class PresetRecord has been renamed to MapThemeRecord
  • Various member functions have been renamed from preset to mapTheme

QgsVectorFileWriter

QgsWMSLegendNode

QgsZipItem

  • mProviderNames was rename to sProviderNames

QgsRenderer

  • New virtual method bool writeSld( QDomNode& node, QDomDocument& doc, QString& errorMessage, QgsStringMap props = QgsStringMap() ) accepts an optional property map passing down layer level properties to the SLD encoders. If scale based visibility is enabled, it will contain the scaleMinDenom and scaleMaxDenom properties.
  • The RotationField capabitity was removed. This is now handled using data defined rotation at a symbol layer level
  • setScaleMethodToSymbol was removed. This is now handled using data defined scaling at a symbol layer level
  • setScaleMethodToSymbol was removed. This is now handled using data defined scaling at a symbol layer level
  • usedAttributes is now a const method and returns QSet<QString> instead of QStringList

QgsRendererAbstractMetadata

QgsGraphDirector

  • makeGraph() now uses QgsFeedback for progress reporting and cancellation
  • buildProgress() signal was removed
  • buildMessage() signal was removed

QgsVectorLayerDirector

Processing

Triangulation

  • forcedCrossBehaviour enum and its setter and getter have been renamed to ForcedCrossBehavior. Its members have been renamed: SnappingType_VERTICE: SnappingTypeVertex, DELETE_FIRST: DeleteFirst, INSERT_VERTEX: InsertVertex.

QgsZonalStatistics

QGIS 2.6

Legend Refactoring

  • QgsComposerLegend::model() - not being used anymore. The model was replaced by one based on QgsLayerTreeModel class and is available in QgsComposerLegend::modelV2()

QGIS 2.4

Multi-threaded Rendering

  • QgsMapCanvas::refresh() only schedules a map refresh (in near feature) and returns immediately - before it would do the drawing immediately and return when the map is redrawn. A call to refresh() will have no effect if there is already a scheduled pending refresh. When map canvas does actual rendering, it will first emit renderStarting() signal, once done it will emit mapCanvasRefreshed(). The client code doing refresh() in order to later save map image should be updated to use new QgsMapRendererJob API which is better suited for such task.
  • QgsPluginLayer::draw() is now run in a background thread. It is recommended to implement newly added QgsPluginLayer::createMapRenderer() method instead of using QgsPluginLayer::draw().
