class pygplates.PropertyName

Bases: Boost.Python.instance

The namespace-qualified name of a property.

All comparison operators (==, !=, <, <=, >, >=) are supported. PropertyName is hashable (can be used as a key in a dict).

create_from_qualified_string(name)

[staticmethod] Creates a PropertyName instance from a fully qualified name string.

Parameters:name (string) – qualified name
Return type:PropertyName or None

The name string should have a : character separating the namespace alias from the unqualified name, for example gpml:reconstructionPlateId. If the namespace alias is not recognised (as gpml, gml or xsi) then gpml is assumed.

An over-qualified name string (eg, containing two or more : characters) will result in None being returned.

property_name = pygplates.PropertyName.create_from_qualified_string('gpml:reconstructionPlateId')
create_gml(name)

[staticmethod] Create a property name qualified with the gml: prefix (gml: + name).

Parameters:name (string) – unqualified name
Return type:PropertyName
gml_valid_time_property_name = pygplates.PropertyName.create_gml('validTime')
create_gpml(name)

[staticmethod] Create a property name qualified with the gpml: prefix (gpml: + name).

Parameters:name (string) – unqualified name
Return type:PropertyName
gpml_reconstruction_plate_id_property_name = pygplates.PropertyName.create_gpml('reconstructionPlateId')
create_xsi(name)

[staticmethod] Create a property name qualified with the xsi: prefix (xsi: + name).

Parameters:name (string) – unqualified name
Return type:PropertyName
property_name = pygplates.PropertyName.create_xsi(name)
get_name()

Returns the unqualified name.

Return type:string

This is the fully qualified name minus the gpml: prefix (if created with create_gpml()).

For example, reconstructionPlateId.

get_namespace()

Returns the namespace URI.

Return type:string

For example, the gpml namespace alias has the namespace http://www.gplates.org/gplates.

get_namespace_alias()

Returns the namespace alias.

Return type:string

For example, gpml (if created with create_gpml()).

to_qualified_string()

Returns the fully qualified name.

Return type:string

For example, gpml:reconstructionPlateId.
