I am trying to export selected feature using PyQGIS.
Till now I have tried these codes. After using this I can select feature but don't know how to export selected feature to new shapefile.
canvas = iface.mapCanvas() AllLayers = canvas.layers() for i in AllLayers: it = i.getFeatures(QgsFeatureRequest().setFilterExpression(u'"Country" = \'India\'')) i.setSelectedFeatures([f.id() for f in it]) print "Filter Applied"
Have tried this code: but this is just creating a duplicate of source file (I need selected only)
_writer = QgsVectorFileWriter.writeAsVectorFormat(i, r"C:\Users\XYZ\Desktop\NewFile.shp", "utf-8", None, "ESRI Shapefile")
If anybody knows how can I export shapefile using PyQGIS?
