I want to create an action in QGIS with multiple Expression. But unable to do so. I want to open images from two different directories with one action. Is it possible? How can I do so?


Type : open
name : open Photo

But it's not working. How can I fix it?

  • Does it work when you specify one .jpg only ? – snaileater Apr 3 '19 at 10:47
  • + Where do u want the pictures to be opened ? In QGIS ? In a web Browser ? in the Windows Explorer ? – snaileater Apr 3 '19 at 11:30
  • Yes it work when i specify picture format(e.g .jpg).Because i use just picture name in column. I want to open picture in window explorer. – Ali Abbas Apr 4 '19 at 10:08

Still awaiting some clarification but here is a working example i just tried (QGIS 3.4.4) :

Action - type Python

from PyQt5.QtCore import QUrl
from PyQt5.QtWebKitWidgets import QWebView

myWV1 = QWebView(None)
myWV1.load(QUrl('file:///D://tempo//' + [% concat('\'',"FIRST_FIELD",'\'') %] + '-1.png'))

myWV2 = QWebView(None)
myWV2.load(QUrl('file:///D://tempo//' + [% concat('\'',"SECOND_FIELD",'\'') %] + '-2.png'))

Which is opening 2 images (in 'local' files) in two separate (non modal) windows. Some tweaking certainly required if you need another behaviour ...

I played a bit with strings to show you a working syntax (escaping quotes ...)
