Class: QgsLayerTreeMapCanvasBridge

class qgis.gui.QgsLayerTreeMapCanvasBridge(root: QgsLayerTree, canvas: QgsMapCanvas, parent: QObject = None)

Bases: PyQt5.QtCore.QObject

Constructor: does not take ownership of the layer tree nor canvas

The QgsLayerTreeMapCanvasBridge class takes care of updates of layer set for QgsMapCanvas from a layer tree. The class listens to the updates in the layer tree and updates the list of layers for rendering whenever some layers are added, removed, or their visibility changes.

The update of layers is not done immediately - it is postponed, so a series of updates to the layer tree will trigger just one update of canvas layers.

Also allows the client to override the default order of layers. This is useful in advanced cases where the grouping in layer tree should be independent from the actual order in the canvas.
