  • def error (reply, error[, errorString=””])

  • def finished (reply)

Detailed Description

Subclasses of QGeoRoutingManagerEngine need to provide an implementation of calculateRoute() .

In the default implementation, supportsRouteUpdates() returns false and updateRoute() returns a QGeoRouteReply object containing a UnsupportedOptionError .

If the routing service supports updating routes as they are being traveled, the subclass should provide an implementation of updateRoute() and call setSupportsRouteUpdates(true) at some point in time before updateRoute() is called.

The function setSupportsRouteUpdates() is one of several functions which configure the reported capabilities of the engine. If the capabilities of an engine differ from the default values these functions should be used so that the reported capabilities are accurate.

It is important that this is done before calculateRoute() , updateRoute() or any of the capability reporting functions are used to prevent incorrect or inconsistent behavior.

A subclass of QGeoRouteManagerEngine will often make use of a subclass fo QGeoRouteReply internally, in order to add any engine-specific data (such as a QNetworkReply object for network-based services) to the QGeoRouteReply instances used by the engine.

class PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine(parameters[, parent=None])
param parent

PySide2.QtCore.QObject

param parameters

Constructs a new engine with the specified parent , using parameters to pass any implementation specific data to the engine.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.calculateRoute(request)
Parameters

requestPySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRouteRequest

Return type

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRouteReply

Begins the calculation of the route specified by request .

A QGeoRouteReply object will be returned, which can be used to manage the routing operation and to return the results of the operation.

This engine and the returned QGeoRouteReply object will emit signals indicating if the operation completes or if errors occur.

Once the operation has completed, routes can be used to retrieve the calculated route or routes.

If request includes features which are not supported by this engine, as reported by the methods in this engine, then a UnsupportedOptionError will occur.

The user is responsible for deleting the returned reply object, although this can be done in the slot connected to finished() , error() , finished() or error() with deleteLater() .

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.error(reply, error[, errorString=""])
Parameters
PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.finished(reply)
Parameters

setLocale()

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.managerName()
Return type

str

Returns the name which this engine implementation uses to distinguish itself from the implementations provided by other plugins.

The combination of and managerVersion() should be unique amongst plugin implementations.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.managerVersion()
Return type

int

Returns the version of this engine implementation.

The combination of managerName() and should be unique amongst plugin implementations.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.measurementSystem()
Return type

MeasurementSystem

Returns the measurement system used by this manager.

If setMeasurementSystem() has been called then the value returned by this function may be different to that returned by locale() . measurementSystem() . In which case the value returned by this function is what will be used by the manager.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.setLocale(locale)
Parameters

localePySide2.QtCore.QLocale

Sets the locale to be used by this manager to locale .

If this routing manager supports returning addresses and instructions in different languages, they will be returned in the language of locale .

The locale used defaults to the system locale if this is not set.

locale()

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.setMeasurementSystem(system)
Parameters

systemMeasurementSystem

Sets the measurement system used by this manager to system .

The measurement system can be set independently of the locale. Both setLocale() and this function set the measurement system. The value set by the last function called will be used.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.setSupportedFeatureTypes(featureTypes)
Parameters

featureTypesFeatureTypes

Sets the types of features that this engine can take into account during route planning to featureTypes .

It is important that subclasses use this method to ensure that the engine reports its capabilities correctly. If this function is not used the engine will report that it supports no feature types at all.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.setSupportedFeatureWeights(featureWeights)
Parameters

featureWeightsFeatureWeights

Sets the weightings which this engine can apply to different features during route planning to featureWeights .

It is important that subclasses use this method to ensure that the engine reports its capabilities correctly. If this function is not used the engine will report that it supports no feature weights at all.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.setSupportedManeuverDetails(maneuverDetails)
Parameters

maneuverDetailsManeuverDetails

Sets the levels of detail for navigation maneuvers which can be requested by this engine to maneuverDetails .

It is important that subclasses use this method to ensure that the engine reports its capabilities correctly. If this function is not used the engine will report that it supports no maneuver details at all.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.setSupportedRouteOptimizations(optimizations)
Parameters

optimizationsRouteOptimizations

Sets the route optimizations supported by this engine to optimizations .

It is important that subclasses use this method to ensure that the engine reports its capabilities correctly. If this function is not used the engine will report that it supports no route optimizations at all.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.setSupportedSegmentDetails(segmentDetails)
Parameters

segmentDetailsSegmentDetails

Sets the levels of detail for routing segments which can be requested by this engine to segmentDetails .

It is important that subclasses use this method to ensure that the engine reports its capabilities correctly. If this function is not used the engine will report that it supports no segment detail at all.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.setSupportedTravelModes(travelModes)
Parameters

travelModesTravelModes

Sets the travel modes supported by this engine to travelModes .

It is important that subclasses use this method to ensure that the engine reports its capabilities correctly. If this function is not used the engine will report that it supports no travel modes at all.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.supportedFeatureTypes()
Return type

FeatureTypes

Returns the types of features that this engine can take into account during route planning.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.supportedFeatureWeights()
Return type

FeatureWeights

Returns the weightings which this engine can apply to different features during route planning.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.supportedManeuverDetails()
Return type

ManeuverDetails

Returns the levels of detail for navigation maneuvers which can be requested by this engine.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.supportedRouteOptimizations()
Return type

RouteOptimizations

Returns the route optimizations supported by this engine.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.supportedSegmentDetails()
Return type

SegmentDetails

Returns the levels of detail for routing segments which can be requested by this engine.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.supportedTravelModes()
Return type

TravelModes

Returns the travel modes supported by this engine.

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRoutingManagerEngine.updateRoute(route, position)
Parameters
Return type

PySide2.QtLocation.QGeoRouteReply

Begins the process of updating route based on the current position position .

A QGeoRouteReply object will be returned, which can be used to manage the routing operation and to return the results of the operation.

This engine and the returned QGeoRouteReply object will emit signals indicating if the operation completes or if errors occur.

If supportsRouteUpdates() returns false an UnsupportedOptionError will occur.

Once the operation has completed, routes can be used to retrieve the updated route.

The returned route could be entirely different to the original route, especially if position is far enough away from the initial route. Otherwise the route will be similar, although the remaining time and distance will be updated and any segments of the original route which have been traversed will be removed.

The user is responsible for deleting the returned reply object, although this can be done in the slot connected to finished() , error() , finished() or error() with deleteLater() .
