PyQt5 QDockWidget – Setting Features of it
  • Last Updated : 28 Jul, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set features to the QDockWidget. QDockWidget provides the concept of dock widgets, also know as tool palettes or utility windows. Dock windows are secondary windows placed in the dock widget area around the central widget in a QMainWindow(original window).

There are many features already enabled for the dock, also there are feature like movable, closable, flotable, horizontal title bar or there is an option of setting all features or setting no features.

In order to do this we will use setFeatures method with the dock widget object.

Syntax : dock.setFeatures(QDockWidget.DockWidgetClosable)

Argument : It takes feature 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 dock widget
        dock = QDockWidget("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # push button
        push = QPushButton("Press", self)
  
        # setting widget to the dock
        dock.setWidget(push)
  
        # setting feature to the dock
        dock.setFeatures(QDockWidget.DockWidgetClosable)
  
        # setting geometry tot he dock widget
        dock.setGeometry(100, 0, 200, 30)
  
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 200, 300, 80)
  
        # 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())
