QgsLayerTreeModel: presence of embedded legend breaks ModelTest

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:20115


A single project with an embedded legend fails an assertion in ModelTester.
Ho to reproduce:

2. Add a vector layer

The default legend for vector layer seems to be embedded, so that QgsLayerTreeModel::rowCount() for it returns 0.
But when the legend item was added, the addition triggered a beginInsertRows was called promising a new row would have been added instead.
The ModelTester catches that discrepancy and crashes.

I don't know which way things should go (counting in embedded legends or skipping them elsewhere). Also I don't see if it could be possible to have multiple embedded legends in a layer...

Whaht does it mean exactly for a legend node to be embedded in parent's node ? It's not documented here:

#2 Updated by Martin Dobias about 8 years ago

Legend node embedded in parent means that the legend node will be not displayed in the view as a separate item under the layer's item, rather the legend node's icon should be used for the layer item. This is used e.g. with single symbol renderer - mainly to conserve vertical space in the view. The embedding should happen if there is only one legend node generated and that flag is enabled. That means you can have cases where there is just one legend node but it is intentionally not embedded.

It seems like beginInsertRows should not be called at all in case of embedded legend node.

#3 Updated by Sandro Santilli about 8 years ago

The following patch fixes the crash indeed, but I see beginInsertRows being also called from other places

#4 Updated by Martin Dobias about 8 years ago

The patch looks good from a quick look. The other beginInsertRows() call handles addition of layer tree nodes, not legend nodes.

  • Target version set to Version 2.8
  • Resolution set to fixed/implemented

Thanks for review, patch pushed as 32079ed3cf7cf851515c63ed01cb994169f45963 -- not sure if this is worth backporting to 2.6 branch, if anyone feels strong about it please state so here and repoen for the purpose.
