PyQt5 QDial – Getting Orientation Property

  • Last Updated : 07 Jul, 2020
Geek Week

In this article, we will see how we can get orientation property of QDial. This property holds the orientation of the slider, the orientation must be Vertical (the default) or Horizontal. For vertical orientation associated value is 2 and for horizontal orientation, it is 1, it can be set to the QDial with the help of setOrientation method.

In order to do this we use orientation method with the QDial object

Syntax : dial.orientation()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns Orientation object but when printed it shows the associated value of 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, 500, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating QDial object
        dial = QDial(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the dial
        dial.setGeometry(100, 100, 100, 100)
  
        # making notch visible
        dial.setNotchesVisible(True)
  
        # setting orientation to it
        dial.setOrientation(Qt.Horizontal)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(220, 125, 200, 60)
  
        # making label multiline
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting orientation
        value = dial.orientation()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Orientation : " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
