napari.utils.events.Selection#

class napari.utils.events.Selection(data: Iterable[_T] = ())[source]#

Bases: EventedSet[_T]

A model of selected items, with active and current item.

There can only be one active and one current item, but there can be multiple selected items. An “active” item is defined as a single selected item (if multiple items are selected, there is no active item). The “current” item is mostly useful for (e.g.) keyboard actions: even with multiple items selected, you may only have one current item, and keyboard events (like up and down) can modify that current item. It’s possible to have a current item without an active item, but an active item will always be the current item.

An item can be the current item and selected at the same time. Qt views will ensure that there is always a current item as keyboard navigation, for example, requires a current item.

This pattern mimics current/selected items from Qt: https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/model-view-programming.html#current-item-and-selected-items

Parameters:

data (iterable, optional) – Elements to initialize the set with.

active#

The active item, if any. An active item is the one being edited.

Type:

Any, optional

_current#

The current item, if any. This is used primarily by GUI views when handling mouse/key events.

Type:

Any, optional

Events:
  • changed (added (Set[_T], removed: Set[_T])) – Emitted when the set changes, includes item(s) that have been added and/or removed from the set.
    • active (value (_T)) – emitted when the current item has changed.

    • _current (value (_T)) – emitted when the current item has changed. (Private event)
