I have a vector layer in QGIS and using Python I would like to be able to export the layer styling to a string variable and import styling in a string variable to the layer again (pseudo code):
style_string = layer_1.rendererV2().export_style() layer_2.rendererV2().import_style(style_string))
The only clue I have found was this blog post which describes how
writeSld(...) can be used. But when I try to import the XML document back into the renderer using
loadSld(...) QGIS gives me a minidump.
Can anyone give me an example of how this can be done?
