PyQtGraph – Getting All Child Items of Graph Item

  • Last Updated : 24 Oct, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get all the child items of the graph item in PyQTGaph. PyQtGraph is a graphics and user interface library for Python that provides functionality commonly required in designing and science applications. Its primary goals are to provide fast, interactive graphics for displaying data (plots, video, etc.). A Graph is a non-linear data structure consisting of nodes and edges. The nodes are sometimes also referred to as vertices and the edges are lines or arcs that connect any two nodes in the graph. Graph consists of a finite set of vertices(or nodes) and set of Edges which connect a pair of nodes. All child items are list of the entire item tree descending from this graph item.

We can create a graphic layout widget and graphic item with the help of command given below 

# creating graphics layout widget
win = pg.GraphicsLayoutWidget()

# creating a graph item
graph_item = pg.GraphItem()

In order to do this we use allChildItemsmethod with the graph item object
Syntax : imv.allChildItems()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It returns list 
 

Below is the implementation 
 

Python3

        # Define the symbol to use for each node (this is optional)
        symbols = ['o', 'x', 'o', 'o', 't', '+']
  
        # Define the line style for each connection (this is optional)
        lines = np.array([
            (255, 0, 0, 255, 1),
            (255, 0, 255, 255, 2),

        ], dtype=[('red', np.ubyte), ('green', np.ubyte), ('blue', np.ubyte), ('alpha', np.ubyte), ('width', float)])
  
        # setting data to the graph item
        graph_item.setData(pos=pos, adj=adj, pen=lines,
                           size=1, symbol=symbols, pxMode=False)
  
        # Creating a grid layout
        layout = QGridLayout()
  
        # minimum width value of the label
        label.setMinimumWidth(130)
  
        # setting this layout to the widget
        widget.setLayout(layout)
  
        # adding label in the layout
        layout.addWidget(label, 1, 0)
  
        # plot window goes on right side, spanning 3 rows
        layout.addWidget(win, 0, 1, 3, 1)
  
        # setting this widget as central widget of the main widow
        self.setCentralWidget(widget)
  
        # getting all the child items of graph item
        value = graph_item.allChildItems()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("All Child Items: " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
