  • Last Updated : 14 Jul, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set 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, they can appear on the left-hand side.

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

Syntax : datetimeedit.setLayoutDirection(Qt.RightToLeft)

Argument : It takes direction object as argument

Return : It returns 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 title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a QDateTimeEdit widget
        datetimeedit = QDateTimeEdit(self)
  
        # setting geometry
        datetimeedit.setGeometry(100, 100, 150, 35)
  
        # setting layout direction
        datetimeedit.setLayoutDirection(Qt.RightToLeft)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 160, 200, 60)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
