In this article we will see how we can get the drop indicator position 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. This property holds the indicator position which is shown when drag and drop is enabled and when we drop the item at a place an indicator appears it can be turned off any time. It can be set with the help of setDropIndicatorShown method. Position can be on item, below item or above the item it depend upon the interface.

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

Syntax : list_widget.dropIndicatorPosition() 

Argument : It takes no argument 

Return : It returns Indicator Position object but when printed it shows the associated value with it

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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # 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
        # setting drag drop mode
        # making drop indicator enabled
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeeksforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(230, 80, 280, 80)
        # making label multi line
        # getting drop indicator position property
        value = list_widget.dropIndicatorPosition()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Drop Indicator Position : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
