fix loading of the default style from QML file (fix #21691) #14660

merged 2 commits into from May 27, 2019

commented May 24, 2019


When loading a layer QGIS tries also to apply default style to it and one of the options for default style is a QML file with the same name as layer file. This works fine for simple layers like shapefiles, but fails when layer URI is not a canonical file path, e.g. for GeoPackages (/path/to/layer|layername=name) or delimited text or SpatiaLite.

This PR is an attempt to partially fix the issue and allows loading default style from the QML file with the same name as GeoPackage/SpatiaLite/CSV layer file has. Note that it will work only for GeoPackage/SpatiaLite files containing single layer and when QML file has the same name as GeoPackage/SpatiaLite, not with the name of the layer inside it.
