PyQt5 QListWidget – Getting Resize Mode Property

  • Last Updated : 06 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the resize mode property to 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 whether the items are laid out again when the view is resized. If this property is Adjust, the items will be laid out again when the view is resized. If the value is Fixed, the items will not be laid out when the view is resized. By default, this property is set to Fixed although it can be set with the help of setResizeMode method.

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

Syntax : list_widget.resizeMode()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns resize mode object, but when printed it shows the value associated 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 resize mode property
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeesforGeeks", self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(230, 80, 280, 80)
        # making label multi line
        # getting resize mode property
        value = list_widget.resizeMode()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Resize Mode Property : " + str(value))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
