After hours of tries and errors I can't get this right in QGIS 2.99.
I want to add a layer with the delimitedtext function in QgsVectorLayer but if I add this code to my plugin, or if I'm running it in the python-console:
import os from qgis.core import QgsProject, QgsVectorLayer fullname = "C:/åäö/myfile.txt" filename = os.path.splitext(os.path.basename(fullname)) uri = 'file:///%s?crs=%s&delimiter=%s&xField=%s&yField=%s&decimal=%s' % (fullname, 'EPSG:3006', ',', 'East', 'North', '.') layer = QgsVectorLayer(uri, filename, 'delimitedtext') if layer: QgsProject.instance().addMapLayer(layer) print("Done") else: print("Error")
I'm getting an error that the file can't be opened, if I change the file path to "C:/abc/myfile.txt" everything's working fine. In QGis 2.18 i solved it with adding a .encode('utf-8') to the path, but that's not working anymore.
If I'm saving that code in a file and makeing my plugin run that file with this code, it's working. But in this way I can't use it because the file is coming from a user input through the filedialog window.
with open(u'C:/åäö/TESTdelimitedText.py') as f: exec(f.read()) return
or if I run it in the editor in python-console in Qgis.
In the ogr provider its working without any problems.
How do I make QgsVectorLayer delimitedtext accept a file path with special characters?
