PyQt5 QSpinBox – Clearing the Mask

In this article we will see how we can clear the mask from the spin box, masks are used to hide part of a UI Image element. We can set mask using setMask method.

In order to do this we use cleanText method.

Syntax : spin_box.clearMask()

Argument : It takes no argument

Action Performed : It mask on the spin box



Implementation steps :
1. Create a main window
2. Create a spin box set its range prefix and suffix
3. Add mask to the spin box
4. Create a push button
5. Add action to the push button
6. Inside the action method call the clearMask method

Below is the implementation

        # clearing the mask
        self.spin.clearMask()
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
window.spin.setFocus()
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
