In this article we will see how we can get orientation property of QScrollBar. QScrollBar is a control that enables the user to access parts of a document that is larger than the widget used to display it. Slider is the scroll-able object inside the bar. The default orientation of the scroll bar is horizontal although we can it horizontal as well. Horizontal scroll bar will have same properties of normal scroll bar. It can be change with the help of setOrientation method.

In order to do this we will use orientation method with the scroll bar object.

Syntax : scroll.orientation()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns orientation 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):
        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):
  
        scroll = QScrollBar(self)
  
        # setting geometry of the scroll bar
        scroll.setGeometry(100, 50, 200, 30)
  
        # making its background color to green
        scroll.setStyleSheet("background : lightgrey;")
  
        # setting orientation
        scroll.setOrientation(Qt.Horizontal)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeesforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(200, 100, 300, 80)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting value changed signal
        scroll.valueChanged.connect(lambda: do_action())
  
        # method called when signal is emitted
        def do_action():
              
            # setting text to the label
            label.setText("Current Value : " + str(scroll.value()))
  
        # getting orientation property
        value = scroll.orientation()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Orientation : " + str(value))
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
