Class: QgsActionMenu

class qgis.gui.QgsActionMenu

Bases: PyQt5.QtWidgets.QMenu

This class is a menu that is populated automatically with the actions defined for a given layer.

QgsActionMenu(layer: QgsVectorLayer, feature: QgsFeature, actionScope: str, parent: QWidget = None) Constructs a new QgsActionMenu

  • layer – The layer that this action will be run upon.

  • feature – The feature that this action will be run upon. Make sure that this feature is available for the lifetime of this object.

  • parent – The usual QWidget parent.

  • actionScope – The action scope this menu will run in

QgsActionMenu(layer: QgsVectorLayer, fid: int, actionScope: str, parent: QWidget = None) Constructs a new QgsActionMenu

scope (QgsExpressionContextScope) –

setFeature(self, feature: QgsFeature)

Change the feature on which actions are performed


feature (QgsFeature) – A feature. Will not take ownership. It’s the callers responsibility to keep the feature as long as the menu is displayed and the action is running.

setMode(self, mode: QgsAttributeEditorContext.Mode)

Change the mode of the actions


mode (QgsAttributeEditorContext.Mode) – The mode of the attribute form
