How to customize the visibility of buttons in QGIS?

The built-in toolbar named "Composer" has an icon "Duplicate Composer".

I wish to toggle the visibility of this button in the toolbar.

How do I achieve this using pyqgis?

You probably moved on ages ago, but for anyone else with this problem, I found a hack'ish way to disable the Save button in all open composer windows:

for c in iface.activeComposers(): if c.isVisible(): w = c.composerWindow() # the QMainWindow of the print composer t = w.childAt(20,30) # its composer QToolBar t.setMovable(False) # to ensure nobody moves the toolbar which will mess with our logic b = t.childAt(18,12) # that toolbar's first QToolButton a = b.defaultAction() # that button's QAction a.setEnabled(False) # disable it ;-)

the QWidget's childAt method does the magic to return a reference to the objects we're interested in, so you could disable your "Duplicate Composer" button by increasing the first argument(x) ofb = t.childAt(18,12)until it works. In fact, this could theoretically be used to find and manipulate any object in the print composer window. The x/y coordinates are relative to the top left corner of the window.

Since the QGIS GUI is programmed to use standard size icons (24x24 pixels) and menu sizes no matter what resolution your screen is, this should be fairly reliable, but the further away from the origin you go the more you risk future QGIS button additions ruining your carefully crafted code.

I hope one day the QGIS devs will expose all composer widgets in the API just like they've done for the main QGIS interface, then we could do this properly…

How to display only one of the show/hide buttons using jquery?

I am stuck here. Here is what I am trying to do..If the image and description list are visible, only the hide button should be displayed. If the image and description list are hidden, only the show button should be visible. Here is what I tried to do:

Here is my js code: $(document).ready(function()< $("#hide").click(function()< $("img, dl").hide() >) $("#show").click(function() < $("img, dl").show() $(document).ready(function()< $('#show').hide() function clickHandler() < $('#hide').toggle('slow') $('#show').toggle('slow') >>) >) >) When the page loads only the hide button should show. If the image and description lists are not visible, the show button should be displayed. Both buttons are displayed when the page loads What is wrong with this?

You can touch the volume button and start sliding your finger left or right to adjust the volume up or down.

No need to lift your finger.

The same goes for the brightness as well.

You can change this via a 3rd party app, or you can set it using System Preferences.

  1. Open the System Preferences app.
  2. Select the Keyboard option (third row, sixth item or just search 'keyboard' and it will highlight itself)
  3. On the first tab (also called Keyboard), locate the dropdown for "Touch Bar shows" and choose "Expanded Control Strip".

This will give you this layout:

I suggest you to give Pock a try, you can set up the old volume up & volume down key on your touch bar in pock's preferences. Besides, it's a free app !

Your condition for visibility is checking whether RadioButton1 equals $GlobalConstant.True. But if you want the Stores Issues radio group to be displayed based on what's selected in the Call Category radio group, what you need to check is what the value of the radio button group is. In your example, RadioButton1 is a Choice resource, not a radio group.

If you want to display the Stores Issues radio group when the first radio button (RadioButton1) in the Call Category is selected, your criteria would be:

Your second group wasn't showing up in the start screen because the RadioButton1 Choice is of type Text, and you're comparing it to the boolean true. Assuming RadioButton1 has a text value, that comparison will always be false.

Customisation of the print view window

If you wish to customise the print view document, this can be done through the customize method of the print button type. This is a callback function that is executed when the print view document has been created, and gives you the ability to modify it to suit your needs. The function is given a single parameter - the window object for the print view document.

This simple example shows:

  • How an image can be inserted into the print view document using jQuery
  • The document's font-size can be adjusted to be suitable for printing
  • A class added to the table to improve its layout for printing
  • The font-size of the table set to match the main document's font-size.

There are lots of ways to do this, but I would recommend against using an icon like the one you have chosen (which could be platform specific). The concept of more information is a bit abstract to represent with an icon that can easily translate across cultures.

If the information is to be shown in a overlay panel, then a downward arrow should be suitable:

This approach is how StackExchange displays more user information quickly in an overlayed panel:

Unless clicking the company name does something else, I would make clicking the company name or the arrow show the overlay panel.

If the arrow is not clear enough, I would add some text. Note that clicking more info or the arrow should trigger the overlay panel:

If the infromation is to be on it's own screen in the application, then it is better to just be explicit and use a button:

In this case, there is no mistake and confusion as to how the user can get more information about the company. You should also style the button to suit your application.

Finding and displaying color infrared imagery for the U.S.

If you need color infrared (false-color) photos for vegetation analysis, you may find these instructions useful. Many sites (e.g., the USDA Geo Gateway) strip the near-IR band from recent imagery to keep file sizes small. Fortunately, the complete, four-band images are available from the National Map web site. Keep reading to learn how to find and use CIR imagery.

3) Zoom in on your area of interest using either the scroll wheel on your mouse or the zoom tool at the top of the map window
4) Click the Download Data button You will be asked if you wish to define a download area by drawing a box, by using 1:24k quad sheets, by using the entire visible map, or by entering coordinates. Choose the first option (bounding box). Click and drag over your area of interest (AOI).

5) Next, you are presented with list of available data for your AOI. Choose Orthoimagery and click Next.

6) You will be shown a list of imagery available for your AOI. The first option, 10:1 Compressed NAIP, contains the 2010-2012 4-band imagery. (Note under “Band” these data are listed as 4B (red, green, blue, and near-infrared)). Check the box next to 10:1Compressed NAIP, then click Next.

7) Your ‘shopping cart’ will appear on the left side of your browser window. Click the Checkout button.

8) Enter your email address twice on the next screen and click Place Order.

9) You should see a confirmation of your order in a pop-up window. Click OK to dismiss the pop-up.

You will receive an e-mail message with links to your download. Note that orthophotos are distributed in 3.75-minute tiles, so each 7.5-minute (1:24,000 scale USGS quagrangle map) will be covered by four photos. A county may require several dozen images for complete coverage.

Four USGS 7.5-minute quads are shown in the image above (Point Nipigon, Cheboygan, Aloha, and Mullett Lake). Sixteen images would need to be downloaded to cover this

II. Displaying Color infrared (CIR) Imagery in ArcGIS

1) After downloading your images, start ArcMap and open a new map document.

2) Use the ArcCatalog tab or the Add Data tool to browse to your data folder. Add the downloaded images to your map. By default, ArcGIS will display the images using a standard, “visible color” scheme (red-green-blue).

3) Right-click on an image and choose Properties…

4) Choose the Symbology tab and change Red to Band_4, Green to Band_1, and Blue to Band_2. Click Apply, then OK.

5) Your image should change from primarily green to red (assuming you are viewing a forested or otherwise vegetated area).

The top image above is shown in standard (R-G-B) colors the one below in ‘false color’ NIR-R-G. Healthy, chlorophyll-rich green vegetation is depicted in reds and pinks in false color imagery. Note that Sherman Field, Michigan Tech’s football field, is artificial turf: it appears green to the naked eye (standard color image), but is nearly black on the CIR image. Infrared film was originally known as ‘camouflage detection film’ due to the ability to resolve ‘fake’ vegetation in this manner.

6) Repeat the band settings (changing to bands 4-1-2) for each image in your map.

III. Displaying Color Infrared (CIR) Imagery in QGIS

1) After downloading your images, start QGIS and open a new project document (loading a new, empty project document is the default behavior).

2) Use the Browser to view your data folder. If you don’t see the Browser, go to View > Panels and ensure that Browser is checked.

3) Next, expand the directory that contains the images you downloaded. Add any images you need by dragging them from the Browser to the map. By default, QGIS will display color imagery using a standard, “visible color” scheme (red-green-blue).

You could instead use the Add Raster Layer tool (above) to add your images but I find the Browser easier to use.

4) Right-click on an image in your Layers list and choose Properties

5) Select the Style panel. Set the Red band to display Band 4, the Green to Band 1, and the Blue to Band 2. Click Apply and then OK.

6) QGIS will now display your image in shades of red instead of green (assuming you are viewing a forested or otherwise vegetated area).

Note that conifers have different leaf cell structure and contain less chlorophyll than deciduous vegetation, so along with differences in texture (conifers often appear coarser), coniferous trees are usually darker on false-color imagery because they reflect less energy in the NIR band. A coniferous stand is highlighted in the two images above.

How to display EnumProperty control like radio buttons, while keeping the selection exclusive?

I have an EnumProperty set up on the Scene in the register function:

Now, elsewhere in the code I have a Panel, which is to display the 'enum' for selection:

So far so good, the control draws correctly, but not the way I want:

Thing is - I wanted a different appearance - I didn't want a dropdown field, instead I want a radio-button like field, as the one found for example here:

. where I can choose one of the options regarding the color mode (BW , RGB or RGBA).

I've found that I can put the "ENUM_FLAG" in the options field of the EnumProperty definition:

This too worked fine, the result I got now is this:

But now I can activate both buttons at once using Shift , and that's what I want to avoid:

So How can make the selection exclusive? How to force Blender to switch from one option to the other (or in other words: How to disable the Shift functionality)?
