PyQt5 QDockWidget – Unsetting Layout Direction

  • Last Updated : 28 Jul, 2020

In this article we will see how we can unset the layout direction of 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). Layout specifies how the children get arranged, by setting layout direction we can specify the order of the arrangement, it can be set with the help of setLayoutDirection method. un-setting means that layout direction will revert back to the default.

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

Syntax : dock.unsetLayoutDirection()

Argument : It takes no 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(self)
  
        # setting title to the doc widget
        dock.setWindowTitle("                   GfG ")
  
  
        # push button
        push = QPushButton("Press", self)
  
        # setting widget to the dock
        dock.setWidget(push)
  
        # setting layout direction
        dock.setLayoutDirection(Qt.RightToLeft)
  
        # unsetting layout direction
        dock.unsetLayoutDirection()
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GfG", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 200, 300, 80)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # setting geometry tot he dock widget
        dock.setGeometry(100, 0, 200, 30)
  
        # getting layout direction of dock
        value = dock.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
sys.exit(App.exec())
