Detailed Description#

QWebEngineScript enables the programmatic injection of so called user scripts in the JavaScript engine at different points, determined by injectionPoint() , during the loading of web contents.

Scripts can be executed either in the main JavaScript world, along with the rest of the JavaScript coming from the web contents, or in their own isolated world. While the DOM of the page can be accessed from any world, JavaScript variables of a function defined in one world are not accessible from a different one. ScriptWorldId provides some predefined IDs for this purpose.

The following Greasemonkey attributes are supported since Qt 5.8: @exclude, @include, @name, @match, and @run-at.

Use scripts() and scripts() to access the collection of scripts associated with a single page or a number of pages sharing the same profile.

Script Injection

class InjectionPoint#

This enum describes the timing of the script injection:

Constant

Description

QWebEngineScript.DocumentCreation

The script will be executed as soon as the document is created. This is not suitable for any DOM operation.

QWebEngineScript.DocumentReady

The script will run as soon as the DOM is ready. This is equivalent to the DOMContentLoaded event firing in JavaScript.

QWebEngineScript.Deferred

The script will run when the page load finishes, or 500ms after the document is ready, whichever comes first.

class ScriptWorldId#

(inherits enum.IntEnum) This enum provides pre-defined world IDs for isolating user scripts into different worlds:

Constant

Description

QWebEngineScript.MainWorld

The world used by the page’s web contents. It can be useful in order to expose custom functionality to web contents in certain scenarios.

QWebEngineScript.ApplicationWorld

The default isolated world used for application level functionality implemented in JavaScript.

QWebEngineScript.UserWorld

The first isolated world to be used by scripts set by users if the application is not making use of more worlds. As a rule of thumb, if that functionality is exposed to the application users, each individual script should probably get its own isolated world.

Note

Properties can be used directly when from __feature__ import true_property is used or via accessor functions otherwise.
