I need a raster layer transparency configured like this:

enter image description here

Since I load the layer with PyQgis, the parameters should be set programmatically. For global transparency and transparency band I found that it works via myrasterlayer.renderer().setOpacity() and myrasterlayer.renderer().setAlphaBand(0), but I did not find a method to set the additional no data value to 0: http://qgis.org/api/classQgsRasterRenderer.html

How to set this value with PyQgis?

  • The method 'setNoDataValue' is in QgsRasterDataProvider. – xunilk Mar 8 '17 at 16:54

The method 'setNoDataValue' is in QgsRasterDataProvider. You can use next code to try it out. It worked for me.

layer = iface.activeLayer()

provider = layer.dataProvider()

provider.setNoDataValue(1, 0) #first one is referred to band number
