Would be nice to set group and/or layer visibility (check state) and expansion state in QgsLegendInterface. I just need it for my plugin, but I thought maybe somebody else could use it someday.

thanks for the patch. I have some suggestions for improvement of the patch in order to commit it:

  • setItemVisible works with both groups and layers, but only on top level. It would be better to split the functionality into two functions, e.g. setGroupVisible and setLayerVisible - where groups would be identified by the index, layers by the pointer to QgsMapLayer to keep the API consistent
  • the "setter" functions should get also appropriate "getter" function to query the state, e.g. for setGroupExpanded there should be a function isGroupExpanded.

Looking forward to see the improved patch,

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your suggestions. I hope the new patch is OK.
Added a groupExists function, too.
