Load the test data. Open python console. Run

117 QgsWKBTypes::Type wkbType() const { return mWkbType; }

Not sure that the test data actually matters.

Build 8e488ca. Originally experienced the problem w/QGIS 2.6, where .exportToWkt() would produce an empty string and .asWkb() would dump random memory contents.

  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Duplicate of #777.

A solution is to keep temporary reference to the feature you work with:

f = iface.activeLayer().selectedFeatures()[0]
print f.geometry().exportToWkt()

This will avoid destruction of QgsFeature instance while its QgsGeometry object is still in use.
