PyQt5 QSpinBox – Checking if the arrow buttons are removed or not

In this article we will see how we can check if the spin box arrow buttons are removed or not, basically there are two buttons in the spin box one for incrementing the value and second for decrementing the value. In order to remove the buttons we use use setButtonSymbols method.

In order to check we will use buttonSymbols method.

Syntax : spin_box.buttonSymbols()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns QAbstractSpinBox object but its corresponding value is 2 if buttons are removed

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, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating spin box
        self.spin = QSpinBox(self)
        # setting geometry to spin box
        self.spin.setGeometry(100, 100, 150, 40)
        # removing the buttons
        # creating label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 160, 200, 30)
        # getting the button symbol
        symbol = self.spin.buttonSymbols()
        # checking if arrow button is removed
        if symbol == 2:
            text ="No Arrow buttons"
            text =" Arrow buttons"
        # setting text to the label
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
