Signals

changed

pyqtSignal(*types, name: str = ..., revision: int = ..., arguments: Sequence = ...) -> PYQT_SIGNAL

pageAboutToBeRemoved

pyqtSignal(*types, name: str = ..., revision: int = ..., arguments: Sequence = ...) -> PYQT_SIGNAL

addPage(self, page: QgsLayoutItemPage | None)

Adds a page to the collection. Ownership of the page is transferred to the collection, and the page will automatically be added to the collection’s layout() (there is no need to manually add the page item to the layout). The page will be added after all pages currently contained in the collection.

Calling addPage() automatically triggers a reflow() of pages.

insertPage()

Parameters:

page (Optional[QgsLayoutItemPage])

beginPageSizeChange(self)

Should be called before changing any page item sizes, and followed by a call to endPageSizeChange(). If page size changes are wrapped in these calls, then items will maintain their same relative position on pages after the page sizes are updated.

changed

pyqtSignal(*types, name: str = …, revision: int = …, arguments: Sequence = …) -> PYQT_SIGNAL

types is normally a sequence of individual types. Each type is either a type object or a string that is the name of a C++ type. Alternatively each type could itself be a sequence of types each describing a different overloaded signal. name is the optional C++ name of the signal. If it is not specified then the name of the class attribute that is bound to the signal is used. revision is the optional revision of the signal that is exported to QML. If it is not specified then 0 is used. arguments is the optional sequence of the names of the signal’s arguments.

Parameters:
  • name (str = ...)

  • revision (int = ...)

  • arguments (Sequence = ...)

Return type:

PYQT_SIGNAL

childEvent(self, a0: QChildEvent | None)
clear(self)

Removes all pages from the collection.

deletePage()

connectNotify(self, signal: QMetaMethod)
customEvent(self, a0: QEvent | None)
deletePage(self, pageNumber: int)

Deletes a page from the collection. The page will automatically be removed from the collection’s layout().

Page numbers in collections begin at 0 - so a pageNumber of 0 will delete the first page in the collection.

Calling deletePage() automatically triggers a reflow() of pages.

See also

clear()

deletePage(self, page: Optional[QgsLayoutItemPage]) Deletes a page from the collection. The page will automatically be removed from the collection’s layout().

Calling deletePage() automatically triggers a reflow() of pages.

clear()

Parameters:

pageNumber (int)

disconnectNotify(self, signal: QMetaMethod)
endPageSizeChange(self)

Should be called after changing any page item sizes, and preceded by a call to beginPageSizeChange(). If page size changes are wrapped in these calls, then items will maintain their same relative position on pages after the page sizes are updated.

extendByNewPage(self) QgsLayoutItemPage | None

Adds a new page to the end of the collection. This page will inherit the same size as the current final page in the collection.

The newly created page will be returned.

insertPage()

Return type:

Optional[QgsLayoutItemPage]

guides(self) QgsLayoutGuideCollection

Returns a reference to the collection’s guide collection, which manages page snap guides.

Return type:

QgsLayoutGuideCollection

hasUniformPageSizes(self) bool

Returns True if the layout has uniform page sizes, e.g. all pages are the same size.

This method does not consider differing units as non-uniform sizes, only the actual physical size of the pages.

Return type:

bool

insertPage(self, page: QgsLayoutItemPage | None, beforePage: int)

Inserts a page into a specific position in the collection.

Ownership of the page is transferred to the collection, and the page will automatically be added to the collection’s layout() (there is no need to manually add the page item to the layout).

The page will be added after before the page number specified by beforePage. (Page numbers in collections begin at 0 - so a beforePage of 0 will insert the page before all existing pages).

Calling insertPage() automatically triggers a reflow() of pages.

pyqtSignal(*types, name: str = …, revision: int = …, arguments: Sequence = …) -> PYQT_SIGNAL

types is normally a sequence of individual types. Each type is either a type object or a string that is the name of a C++ type. Alternatively each type could itself be a sequence of types each describing a different overloaded signal. name is the optional C++ name of the signal. If it is not specified then the name of the class attribute that is bound to the signal is used. revision is the optional revision of the signal that is exported to QML. If it is not specified then 0 is used. arguments is the optional sequence of the names of the signal’s arguments.

Parameters:
  • name (str = ...)

  • revision (int = ...)

  • arguments (Sequence = ...)

Return type:

PYQT_SIGNAL

pageAtPoint(self, point: QPointF | QPoint) QgsLayoutItemPage | None

Returns the page at a specified point (in layout coordinates).

If no page exists at point, None will be returned.

Note

Unlike pageNumberForPoint(), this method only returns pages which directly intersect with the specified point.

Parameters:

point (Union[QPointF)

Return type:

Optional[QgsLayoutItemPage]

pageCount(self) int

Returns the number of pages in the collection.

See also

pages()

Return type:

int

pageIsEmpty(self, page: int) bool

Returns whether a given page index is empty, ie, it contains no items except for the background paper item.

Parameters:

page (int)

Return type:

bool

pageNumber(self, page: QgsLayoutItemPage | None) int

Returns the page number for the specified page, or -1 if the page is not contained in the collection.

Parameters:

page (Optional[QgsLayoutItemPage])

Return type:

int

pageNumberForPoint(self, point: QPointF | QPoint) int

Returns the page number corresponding to a point in the layout (in layout units).

Page numbers in collections begin at 0 - so a page number of 0 indicates the first page.

Note

This is a relaxed check, which will always return a page number. For instance, it does not consider x coordinates and vertical coordinates before the first page or after the last page will still return the nearest page.

positionOnPage()

Parameters:

point (Union[QPointF)

Return type:

int

pagePositionToAbsolute(self, page: int, position: QgsLayoutPoint) QgsLayoutPoint

Converts a position on a page to an absolute position in (maintaining the units from the input position).

Parameters:
Return type:

QgsLayoutPoint

pagePositionToLayoutPosition(self, page: int, position: QgsLayoutPoint) QPointF

Converts a position on a page to an absolute position in layout coordinates.

Parameters:
Return type:

QPointF

pageShadowWidth(self) float

Returns the size of the page shadow, in layout units.

Return type:

float

pageStyleSymbol(self) QgsFillSymbol | None

Returns the symbol to use for drawing pages in the collection.

pageCount()

Return type:

List[QgsLayoutItemPage]

positionOnPage(self, point: QPointF | QPoint) QPointF

Returns the position within a page of a point in the layout (in layout units).

Parameters:

point (Union[QPointF)

Return type:

QPointF

predictPageNumberForPoint(self, point: QPointF | QPoint) int

Returns the theoretical page number corresponding to a point in the layout (in layout units), assuming that enough pages exist in the layout to cover that point.

If there are insufficient pages currently in the layout, this method will assume that extra “imaginary” pages have been added at the end of the layout until that point is reached. These imaginary pages will inherit the size of the existing final page in the layout.

Page numbers in collections begin at 0 - so a page number of 0 indicates the first page.

resizeToContents(self, margins: QgsMargins, marginUnits: Qgis.LayoutUnit)

Resizes the layout to a single page which fits the current contents of the layout.

Calling this method resets the number of pages to 1, with the size set to the minimum size required to fit all existing layout items. Items will also be repositioned so that the new top-left bounds of the layout is at the point (marginLeft, marginTop). An optional margin can be specified.

Parameters:
sender(self) QObject | None
senderSignalIndex(self) int
setPageStyleSymbol(self, symbol: QgsFillSymbol | None)

Ownership is not transferred, and a copy of the symbol is created internally.

Parameters:

symbol (Optional[QgsFillSymbol])

shouldExportPage(self, page: int) bool

Returns whether the specified page number should be included in exports of the layouts.

Warning

This will always return True unless the layout is being currently exported – it cannot be used in advance to determine whether a given page will be exported!
