In my QGIS python plugin I use "self.iface.actionSelectRectangle().trigger()" to select features. I also have a button which changes the attributes of the selected features.

Is there a way instead of using a button to change the attributes, to call the method automaticaly after a selection was made using "self.iface.actionSelectRectangle().trigger()".

Thank you and regards
