PyQt5 QDial – Getting Orientation Property

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
