I'm working on a Qgis plugin with python,

I'm creating a feature and I show a feature form to edit the attributes. But after the openFeatureForm function call the program crash and close

line = QgsFeature()
pr = parcoursLayer.dataProvider()

this is the message after crash

  • Do you get an error message or stack trace?

  • What kind of layer is parcoursLayer? OGR? Memory?

  • @underdark, it's not a Memory layer, it's the current layer

we are facing the same issue here. It seems related to a bug in PyQt4.

See preloadForm method comment here for a workaround :


and here the issue raised to QT / Pyqt 4 by NathanW:



Before to set geometry of 'transformedLine' try out to print it. This object should have a form similar (if it is projected in meters) to this (for one feature):

[(366179,4.46968e+06), (357711,4.44966e+06), (363870,4.43041e+06), (382100,4.41947e+06), (396590,4.41078e+06)]

A list of QgsPoint.

The another strange thing is in:


You are passing a list where it is expected a feature but, the method 'addFeatures' does not exist in QgsDataProvider. It is in QgsVectorLayer. Normally it would be:

feat = QgsFeature()
feat.setAttributes([1]) #one feature with id = 1; several features in a loop
your_layer.addFeature(feat, True)
  • I show the transformedLine and it's a liste of QgsPoint, and I did what you said, but I have the same problem
