I'm currently working on a QGIS plugin which uses the selected items of a vector layer containing only points. Using the current selection is quite easy but I need to react in real time to a change in the selection.

How can i do that without creating a custom selection tool. I haven't found anything in the developper cookbook or on google.

You can use the selectionChanged signal like mentionned in this post :

  • Thank you! Now I don't even know how I missed the whole signal part of the python API after the time I spent in it ^^'
