Class: QgsLayoutNodesItem

class qgis.core.QgsLayoutNodesItem(layout: QgsLayout)

Bases: QgsLayoutItem

Constructor for QgsLayoutNodesItem, attached to the specified layout.

QgsLayoutNodesItem(polygon: QPolygonF, layout: QgsLayout) Constructor for a QgsLayoutNodesItem with the given polygon nodes, attached to the specified layout.

An abstract layout item that provides generic methods for node based shapes such as polygon or polylines.

New in version 3.0.

Parameters

layout

addNode(self, point: Union[QPointF, QPoint], checkArea: bool = True, radius: float = 10) → bool

Add a node in current shape.

Parameters
  • point (Union[QPointF) – is the location of the new node (in scene coordinates)

  • checkArea (bool = True) – is a flag to indicate if there’s a space constraint.

  • radius (float = 10) – is the space contraint and is used only if checkArea is True. Typically, if this flag is True, the new node has to be nearer than radius to the shape to be added.

Return type

bool

adjustPointForReferencePosition(self, point: Union[QPointF, QPoint], size: QSizeF, reference: QgsLayoutItem.ReferencePoint) → QPointF

Adjusts the specified point at which a reference position of the item sits and returns the top left corner of the item, if reference point were placed at the specified position.

applyDataDefinedSize(self, size: QgsLayoutSize)QgsLayoutSize

Applies any present data defined size overrides to the specified layout size.

applyItemSizeConstraint(self, targetSize: QSizeF) → QSizeF

Applies any item-specific size constraint handling to a given targetSize in layout units. Subclasses can override this method if they need to apply advanced logic regarding item sizes, which cannot be covered by setFixedSize() or setMinimumSize(). Item size constraints are applied after fixed, minimum and data defined size constraints.

readObjectPropertiesFromElement(self, parentElement: QDomElement, document: QDomDocument, context: QgsReadWriteContext) → bool

Sets object properties from a DOM element

Parameters
  • parentElement – is the parent DOM element for the object

refreshBackgroundColor(self, updateItem: bool = True)

Refresh item’s background color, considering data defined colors. If updateItem is set to False, the item will not be automatically updated after the frame color is set and a later call to update() must be made.

Refresh item’s frame, considering data defined colors and frame size. If updateItem is set to False, the item will not be automatically updated after the frame is set and a later call to update() must be made.

refreshItemPosition(self)

Refreshes an item’s position by rechecking it against any possible overrides such as data defined positioning.

refreshItemRotation(self, origin: Union[QPointF, QPoint] = None)
