In this article we will see how we can get layout direction of the QDateTimeEdit widget. Layout direction specifies the direction of the QDateTime, by default the arrow buttons which increment or decrement date-time are on the right-hand side although by setting layout direction with the help of setLayoutDirection method, they can appear on the left-hand side.

In order to do this we will use layoutDirection method with the QDateTimeEdit object.

Syntax : datetimeedit.layoutDirection()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns direction object but when printed it shows the value associated with it

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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a QDateTimeEdit widget
        datetimeedit = QDateTimeEdit(self)
        # setting geometry
        datetimeedit.setGeometry(100, 100, 150, 35)
        # setting layout direction
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 160, 200, 60)
        # making label multi line
        # getting layout direction
        value = datetimeedit.layoutDirection()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Layout Direction " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
