Class: QgsWidgetWrapper

class qgis.gui.QgsWidgetWrapper(vl: QgsVectorLayer, editor: QWidget = None, parent: QWidget = None)

Bases: PyQt5.QtCore.QObject

Create a new widget wrapper

Parameters
  • vl – The layer on which the field is

  • editor – An editor widget. Can be None if one should be autogenerated.

  • parent – A parent widget for this widget wrapper and the created widget.

Manages an editor widget Widget and wrapper share the same parent

A wrapper controls one attribute editor widget and is able to create a default widget or use a pre-existent widget. It is able to set the widget to the value implied by a field of a vector layer, or return the value it currently holds. Every time it is changed it has to emit a valueChanged signal. If it fails to do so, there is no guarantee that the changed status of the widget will be saved.

childEvent()
config(self, key: str, defaultVal: Any = None) → Any

Use this inside your overridden classes to access the configuration.

Parameters
  • key – The configuration option you want to load

  • defaultVal – Default value

Returns

the value assigned to this configuration option

config(self) -> Dict[str, Any] Returns the whole config

connectNotify()
context(self) → QgsAttributeEditorContext

Returns information about the context in which this widget is shown

createWidget(self, parent: QWidget) → QWidget

This method should create a new widget with the provided parent. This will only be called if the form did not already provide a widget, so it is not guaranteed to be called! You should not do initialization stuff, which also has to be done for custom editor widgets inside this method. Things like filling comboboxes and assigning other data which will also be used to make widgets on forms created in the QtDesigner usable should be assigned in initWidget().

Parameters

parent – You should set this parent on the created widget.

Returns

A new widget

customEvent()
dataDefinedProperties(self) → QgsPropertyCollection

Returns a reference to the editor widget’s property collection, used for data defined overrides.
