PyQt5 QListWidget – Getting Layout Mode

In this article we will see how we can get the layout mode 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 layout mode for the items. When the mode is SinglePass (the default), the items are laid out all in one go. When the mode is Batched, the items are laid out in batches of batchSize items, while processing events. This makes it possible to instantly view and interact with the visible items while the rest are being laid out. It can be set with the help of setLayoutMode method.

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

Syntax : list_widget.layoutMode(mode)

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns layout mode object
