I did a batch processing of several vector layers and now the display name for every file is "dissolved" when accessing the
layer.name() function in QGIS. I read in this answer from underdark to Changing layer name of output vector from processing script in QGIS?, that I can set the name to the file name but unfortunaly too late.
I am able to get all the files in my project to be in a list with
layers = iface.mapCanvas().layers()
and all the names with this:
names = [layer.name() for layer in QgsMapLayerRegistry.instance().mapLayers().values()]
import os real_names =  for li in layers: (myDirectory,nameFile) = os.path.split(li.dataProvider().dataSourceUri()) real_names.append(nameFile.split("|")
Reading the API docu for the QgsVectorLayer didnt helped me. What I want is to rename the files to show the filename as display name. How to archive that with the python console?
