There are 4 buttons located in the execute tab, for controlling how to render the pgRouting query:
Draws in the canvas the resulting path.
Creates a temporary lines on the canvas. No additional information is shown, except for the Cost functions where an annotation is also created.
Removes from the canvas objects generated with Preview
When Clear Preview is called the generated temporary lines and annotation are deleted from the canvas. When the QGIS project is saved when there are visible annotations:
- Those annotations will be saved as part of the project
- Can be cleared with Clear Preview button, but the project needs to be saved again. On reopening a project that has annotation:
- The annotations will be shown, but won't be cleared using the Clear Preview button, they are not under the pgRoutingLayer GUI control
Creates a one row per edge line geometry layer
Creates a one row per path multi-line geometry layer.
Only one row is generated. Not all functions results can be merged, when that is the case then the button is dimmed.
