Detailed Description

A web engine page holds the contents of an HTML document, the history of navigated links, and actions.

QWebEnginePage ‘s API is very similar to QWebEngineView , as you are still provided with common functions like action() (known as pageAction () in QWebEngineView ), triggerAction() , and findText() .

A page can be loaded using load() or setUrl() . Alternatively, if you have the HTML content readily available, you can use setHtml() . The GET method is always used to load URLs.

The QWebEnginePage class also offers methods to retrieve both the URL currently loaded by the page (see url() ) as well as the URL originally requested to be loaded (see requestedUrl() ). These methods make possible the retrieval of the URL before and after a DNS resolution or a redirection occurs during the load process. The requestedUrl() also matches to the URL added to the page history ( QWebEngineHistory ) if load is successful.

The title of an HTML page can be accessed with the title() property. Additionally, a page may also specify an icon, which can be accessed using the icon() or its URL using the iconUrl() property. If the title or the icon changes, the corresponding titleChanged() , iconChanged() and iconUrlChanged() signals will be emitted. The zoomFactor() property enables zooming the contents of the web page by a scale factor.

The loadStarted() signal is emitted when the page begins to load, whereas the loadProgress() signal is emitted whenever an element of the web page completes loading, such as an embedded image or a script. The loadFinished() signal is emitted when the page contents have been loaded completely, independent of script execution or page rendering. Its argument, either true or false , indicates whether or not the load operation succeeded.

An HTML document is loaded in a main frame within the web page. If it references child frames (as defined by the <frame> or <iframe> elements), they are considered part of the content. Child frames are individually accessible only through JavaScript.

Web sites define security origin for safely accessing each other’s resources for client-side scripting or databases. An origin consist of a host name, a scheme, and a port number. For example, the sites http://www.example.com/my/page.html and http://www.example.com/my/overview.html are allowed to share the same database or access each other’s documents when used in HTML frame sets and JavaScript. At the same time, http://www.malicious.com/evil.html is prevented from accessing the resources of http://www.example.com/ , because they are of a different security origin. By default, local schemes like file:// and qrc:// are considered to be in the same security origin, and can access each other’s resources. Local resources are by default restricted from accessing remote content, which means that file:// will not be able to access http://domain.com/foo.html .

Scripts can be executed on the web page by using runJavaScript() , either in the main JavaScript world , along with the rest of the JavaScript coming from the web contents, or in their own isolated world. While the DOM of the page can be accessed from any world, JavaScript variables of a function defined in one world are not accessible from a different one. ScriptWorldId provides some predefined IDs for this purpose. Using the runJavaScript() version without the world ID is the same as running the script in the MainWorld .

The FocusOnNavigationEnabled setting can be used to make the view associated with the page automatically receive focus when a navigation operation occurs (like loading or reloading a page or navigating through history).

lifecycleState Page Lifecycle API WebEngine Lifecycle Example

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.acceptNavigationRequest(url, type, isMainFrame)
Parameters
Return type

bool

This function is called upon receiving a request to navigate to the specified url by means of the specified navigation type type . isMainFrame indicates whether the request corresponds to the main frame or a child frame. If the function returns true , the navigation request is accepted and url is loaded. The default implementation accepts all navigation requests.

Navigation requests can be delegated to the Qt application instead of having the HTML handler engine process them by overloading this function. This is necessary when an HTML document is used as part of the user interface, and not to display external data, for example, when displaying a list of results.

Note

The loading process is started and the loadStarted() signal is emitted before the request is accepted or rejected. Therefore, a loadFinished() signal that returns false is to be expected even after delegating the request.

Note

When using setHtml or setContent with relative links, make sure to specify a base url, otherwise the links will be considered invalid and no navigation requests will be emitted.

The QWebEngineUrlRequestInterceptor class offers further options for intercepting and manipulating requests.

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.action(action)
Parameters

actionWebAction

Return type

PySide2.QtWidgets.QAction

Returns a QAction for the specified WebAction action .

The action is owned by the QWebEnginePage but you can customize the look by changing its properties.

QWebEnginePage also takes care of implementing the action, so that upon triggering the corresponding action is performed on the page.

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.setBackgroundColor(color)
Parameters

colorPySide2.QtGui.QColor

This property holds The page’s background color behind the document’s body..

You can set the background color to transparent or to a translucent color to see through the document, or you can set it to match your web content in a hybrid application to prevent the white flashes that may appear during loading.

The default value is white.

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.setContent(data[, mimeType=""[, baseUrl=QUrl()]])
Parameters

Sets the content of the web page to data . If the mimeType argument is empty, it is assumed that the content is text/plain,charset=US-ASCII .

External objects referenced in the content are located relative to baseUrl .

The data is loaded immediately; external objects are loaded asynchronously.

Note

This method will not affect session or global history for the page.

Warning

The content will be percent encoded before being sent to the renderer via IPC. This may increase its size. The maximum size of the percent encoded content is 2 megabytes minus 6 bytes plus the length of the mime type string.

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.setDevToolsPage(page)
Parameters

pagePySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage

Binds devToolsPage to be the developer tools of this page. Triggers devToolsPage to navigate to an internal URL with the developer tools.

This is the same as calling setInspectedPage() on devToolsPage with this as argument.

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.setFeaturePermission(securityOrigin, feature, policy)
Parameters

Sets the permission for the web site identified by securityOrigin to use feature to policy .

Note

This method is primarily for calling after a featurePermissionRequested() signal has been emitted to trigger the feature permission response. It can also be called before a request has been emitted, but will only set a granted permission for passive checks, mainly for Notification APIs that can check if permission has already been granted before explicitly requesting it.

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.setHtml(html[, baseUrl=QUrl()])
Parameters

Sets the content of this page to html . baseUrl is optional and used to resolve relative URLs in the document, such as referenced images or stylesheets.

The html is loaded immediately; external objects are loaded asynchronously.

If a script in the html runs longer than the default script timeout (currently 10 seconds), for example due to being blocked by a modal JavaScript alert dialog, this method will return as soon as possible after the timeout and any subsequent html will be loaded asynchronously.

When using this method, the web engine assumes that external resources, such as JavaScript programs or style sheets, are encoded in UTF-8 unless otherwise specified. For example, the encoding of an external script can be specified through the charset attribute of the HTML script tag. It is also possible for the encoding to be specified by the web server.

This is a convenience function equivalent to setContent (html, “text/html”, baseUrl).

Note

This method will not affect session or global history for the page.

Warning

This function works only for HTML, for other mime types (such as XHTML and SVG) setContent() should be used instead.

Warning

The content will be percent encoded before being sent to the renderer via IPC. This may increase its size. The maximum size of the percent encoded content is 2 megabytes minus 30 bytes.

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.setInspectedPage(page)
Parameters

pagePySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage

Navigates this page to an internal URL that is the developer tools of page .

This is the same as calling setDevToolsPage() on page with this as argument.

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.setLifecycleState(state)
Parameters

stateLifecycleState

This property holds The current lifecycle state of the page..

The following restrictions are enforced by the setter:

  • A visible page must remain in the Active state.

  • If the page is being inspected by a devToolsPage then both pages must remain in the Active states.

  • A page in the Discarded state can only transition to the Active state. This will cause a reload of the page.

These are the only hard limits on the lifecycle state, but see also recommendedState for the recommended soft limits.

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.setVisible(visible)
Parameters

visible – bool

This property holds Whether the page is considered visible in the Page Visibility API..

Setting this property changes the Document.hidden and the Document.visibilityState properties in JavaScript which web sites can use to voluntarily reduce their resource usage if they are not visible to the user.

If the page is connected to a view then this property will be managed automatically by the view according to it’s own visibility.

PySide2.QtWebEngineWidgets.QWebEnginePage.setWebChannel(arg__1)
Parameters

arg__1PySide2.QtWebChannel.QWebChannel

This is an overloaded function.

Sets the web channel instance to be used by this page to channel and installs it in the main JavaScript world.

With this method the web channel can be accessed by web page content. If the content is not under your control and might be hostile, this could be a security issue and you should consider installing it in a private JavaScript world.
