When we create progress bar in PyQt5 its orientation is by default horizontal, but we can change it with the help of setOrientation method. In order to get the information about the orientation of progress bar i.e it is horizontal or vertical orientation method is used.

Syntax : bar.orientation()

Argument : It takes no argument.

Return : It will return Orientation object although when we print it, it will print 1 for horizontal orientation and 2 for vertical orientation.

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 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 progress bar
        bar = QProgressBar(self)
  
        # setting geometry to progress bar
        bar.setGeometry(250, 90, 30, 200)
  
        # set value to progress bar
        bar.setValue(40)
  
        # setting alignment to center
        bar.setAlignment(Qt.AlignCenter)
  
        # setting orientation to vertical
        bar.setOrientation(QtCore.Qt.Vertical)
  
        # getting orientation
        orientation = bar.orientation()
          
        # printing its type
        print(type(orientation))
          
        # printing the orientation
        print(orientation)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :

class 'PyQt5.QtCore.Qt.Orientation'
