Detailed Description

Main Pal labeling class.

A pal object will contains layers and global information such as which search method will be used.

Note
not available in Python bindings

Member Typedef Documentation

◆ FnIsCanceled

typedef bool( * pal::Pal::FnIsCanceled) (void *ctx)

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ Pal() [1/2]

Pal::Pal ( )

Create an new pal instance.

Definition at line 50 of file pal.cpp.

Member Function Documentation

◆ addLayer()

Layer * Pal::addLayer ( QgsAbstractLabelProvider provider,
const QString &  layerName,
QgsPalLayerSettings::Placement  arrangement,
double  defaultPriority,
bool  active,
bool  toLabel,
bool  displayAll = false 
)

add a new layer

Parameters
providerProvider associated with the layer
layerNamelayer's name
arrangementHowto place candidates
defaultPrioritylayer's prioriry (0 is the best, 1 the worst)
activeis the layer is active (currently displayed)
toLabelthe layer will be labeled only if toLablel is true
displayAllif true, all features will be labelled even though overlaps occur
Exceptions
PalException::LayerExists

Definition at line 78 of file pal.cpp.

◆ extractProblem()

std::unique_ptr< Problem > Pal::extractProblem ( const QgsRectangle extent,
const QgsGeometry mapBoundary 
)

Extracts the labeling problem for the specified map extent - only features within this extent will be considered.

The mapBoundary argument specifies the actual geometry of the map boundary, which will be used to detect whether a label is visible (or partially visible) in the rendered map. This may differ from extent in the case of rotated or non-rectangular maps.

Definition at line 441 of file pal.cpp.

◆ globalCandidatesLimitLine()

int pal::Pal::globalCandidatesLimitLine ( ) const
inline

Returns the global candidates limit for line features, or 0 if no global limit is in effect.

This is an installation-wide setting which applies to all projects, and is set via QSettings. It can be used to place global limits on the number of candidates generated for line features in order to optimise map rendering speeds.

globalCandidatesLimitPolygon()
globalCandidatesLimitPoint()

Definition at line 230 of file pal.h.

◆ globalCandidatesLimitPoint()

int pal::Pal::globalCandidatesLimitPoint ( ) const
inline

Returns the global candidates limit for point features, or 0 if no global limit is in effect.

This is an installation-wide setting which applies to all projects, and is set via QSettings. It can be used to place global limits on the number of candidates generated for point features in order to optimise map rendering speeds.

globalCandidatesLimitLine()
globalCandidatesLimitPolygon()

Definition at line 218 of file pal.h.

◆ globalCandidatesLimitPolygon()

int pal::Pal::globalCandidatesLimitPolygon ( ) const
inline

Returns the global candidates limit for polygon features, or 0 if no global limit is in effect.

This is an installation-wide setting which applies to all projects, and is set via QSettings. It can be used to place global limits on the number of candidates generated for polygon features in order to optimise map rendering speeds.

◆ isCanceled()

bool pal::Pal::isCanceled ( )
inline

Check whether the job has been canceled.

Definition at line 127 of file pal.h.

◆ maximumLineCandidatesPerMapUnit()

double pal::Pal::maximumLineCandidatesPerMapUnit ( ) const
inline

Returns the maximum number of line label candidate positions per map unit.

See also
setMaximumLineCandidatesPerMapUnit()

Definition at line 171 of file pal.h.

◆ maximumPolygonCandidatesPerMapUnitSquared()

double pal::Pal::maximumPolygonCandidatesPerMapUnitSquared ( ) const
inline

Returns the maximum number of polygon label candidate positions per map unit squared.

See also
setMaximumPolygonCandidatesPerMapUnitSquared()

Definition at line 185 of file pal.h.

◆ operator=()

Pal& pal::Pal::operator= ( const Pal other)
delete

Pal cannot be copied.

◆ placementVersion()

QgsLabelingEngineSettings::PlacementEngineVersion Pal::placementVersion ( ) const

Returns the placement engine version, which dictates how the label placement problem is solved.

See also
setPlacementVersion()

Definition at line 503 of file pal.cpp.

◆ registerCancellationCallback()

void Pal::registerCancellationCallback ( Pal::FnIsCanceled  fnCanceled,
void *  context 
)

Register a function that returns whether this job has been canceled - PAL calls it during the computation.

Definition at line 435 of file pal.cpp.

◆ removeLayer()

void Pal::removeLayer ( Layer layer)

remove a layer

Parameters
layerlayer to remove

Definition at line 60 of file pal.cpp.

◆ setMaximumLineCandidatesPerMapUnit()

void pal::Pal::setMaximumLineCandidatesPerMapUnit ( double  candidates)
inline

Sets the maximum number of line label candidates per map unit.

See also
maximumLineCandidatesPerMapUnit()

Definition at line 178 of file pal.h.

◆ setMaximumPolygonCandidatesPerMapUnitSquared()

void pal::Pal::setMaximumPolygonCandidatesPerMapUnitSquared ( double  candidates)
inline

Sets the maximum number of polygon label candidates per map unit squared.

See also
maximumPolygonCandidatesPerMapUnitSquared()

Definition at line 192 of file pal.h.

◆ setPlacementVersion()

void Pal::setPlacementVersion ( QgsLabelingEngineSettings::PlacementEngineVersion  placementVersion)

Sets the placement engine version, which dictates how the label placement problem is solved.

See also
placementVersion()

Definition at line 508 of file pal.cpp.

◆ setShowPartialLabels()

void Pal::setShowPartialLabels ( bool  show)

Sets whether partial labels show be allowed.

See also
showPartialLabels()

Definition at line 498 of file pal.cpp.

◆ showPartialLabels()

bool Pal::showPartialLabels ( ) const

Returns whether partial labels should be allowed.

See also
setShowPartialLabels()

Definition at line 523 of file pal.cpp.

◆ solveProblem()

QList< LabelPosition * > Pal::solveProblem ( Problem prob,
bool  displayAll,
QList< pal::LabelPosition *> *  unlabeled = nullptr 
)

Solves the labeling problem, selecting the best candidate locations for all labels and returns a list of these calculated label positions.

If displayAll is true, then the best positions for ALL labels will be returned, regardless of whether these labels overlap other labels.

If the optional unlabeled list is specified, it will be filled with a list of all feature labels which could not be placed in the returned solution (e.g. due to overlaps or other constraints).

Ownership of the returned labels is not transferred - it resides with the pal object.
