PyQt5 Label – Setting Vertical offset of shadow

  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set the vertical offset of shadow to the label, offset is basically distance between the shadow of the label and the label by default offset value is 8 although we can change it any time.

In order to do this we use setYOffset method

Syntax : shadow.setYOffset(n)
Here shadow is the QGraphicsDropShadowEffect object

Argument : It takes float value as argument

Return : None



Below is the implementation




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
import sys
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
  
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting background color of window
        # self.setStyleSheet("background-color : black;")
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating label
        label = QLabel("Label", self)
  
        # setting alignment
        label.setAlignment(Qt.AlignCenter)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(200, 100, 150, 60)
  
        # setting border
        label.setStyleSheet("border : 8px solid black")
  
        # creating a QGraphicsDropShadowEffect object
        shadow = QGraphicsDropShadowEffect()
  
        # setting blur radius
        shadow.setBlurRadius(20)
  
        # setting Yoffset
        shadow.setYOffset(100.5)
  
        # adding shadow to the label
        label.setGraphicsEffect(shadow)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
