I have a point layer postgis with some fields that georeference the point (comune, provincia, river etc.) I need to set these fields with a default value that appears in qgis form when I insert a point, possibly I can change them. enter image description here So I solved it introducing sone default function using refFunctions v1.0 plugin.enter image description here I have used 5 functions like this. It works fine but after inserting the point I must wait 10 second to open the form. So I have the fields already filled but it's all slower. Using postgis trigger or autofield plugin I can't see the default values in form and this doesn't help me to correct inaccuracies.

Some ideas to speed things up?


I'm triyng to develop a solution using QGIS field calculator in python? Every suggestion is welcome

  • The 'mview_limiti_comune_vl' layer is view? – pigreco Jun 20 '17 at 12:06
  • Yes, it's a materialized view to limit the size of original layer. – Daniele Piccolo Jun 20 '17 at 12:08
  • out of curiosity: how did you get the combo boxes in your first image? is it a new feature from QGIS 2.18 to display foreign keys? nevermind i found it – LaughU Jun 22 '17 at 8:03
  • it isn't a new feature. It is a "value relation". You can choose from a list that is a field of a loaded layer – Daniele Piccolo Jun 22 '17 at 8:10

Unfortunately some of the reffunctions functions are inefficiently written and resort to fetching tons of features from the layer, resulting in this delay. I'd file a bug with the reffunction plugin itself.

  • Yes, it's true. So i'm trying to develop a python solution – Daniele Piccolo Jun 22 '17 at 7:32
