PyQt5 QListWidget – Getting Drag Drop Property

  • Last Updated : 06 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the drag drop property of the QListWidget. QListWidget is a convenience class that provides a list view with a classic item-based interface for adding and removing items. QListWidget uses an internal model to manage each QListWidgetItem in the list. Describes the various drag and drop events the view can act upon. By default the view does not support dragging or dropping (NoDragDrop). There are many options available like, drag only, drag drop, drop only, no drag drop. It can be set with the help of setDragDropMode method.

In order to do this we will use dragDropMode method with the list widget object.

Syntax : list_widget.dragDropMode()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns drag drop object



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 QListWidget
        list_widget = QListWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to it
        list_widget.setGeometry(50, 70, 150, 60)
  
        # list widget items
        item1 = QListWidgetItem("A")
        item2 = QListWidgetItem("B")
        item3 = QListWidgetItem("C")
  
        # adding items to the list widget
        list_widget.addItem(item1)
        list_widget.addItem(item2)
        list_widget.addItem(item3)
  
        # setting drag drop mode
        list_widget.setDragDropMode(QAbstractItemView.DragDrop)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeesforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(230, 80, 280, 80)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
          
        # getting drag drop property
        value = list_widget.dragDropMode()
          
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Drag Drop Property : " + str(value))
          
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
