PyQt5 QSpinBox – Getting ascent of the font
  • Last Updated : 26 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the ascent of the spin box’s font i.e text. The ascent of a font is the distance from the baseline to the highest position characters extend to. In practice, some font designers break this rule, e.g. when they put more than one accent on top of a character, or to accommodate an unusual character in an exotic language, so it is possible (though rare) that this value will be too small.

In order to do this we use ascent method with the spin box’s QFontMetrics object.

Syntax : font_metrics.ascents()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns integer



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, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
        # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating spin box
        self.spin = QSpinBox(self)
  
        # setting geometry to spin box
        self.spin.setGeometry(100, 100, 250, 40)
  
        # setting range to the spin box
        self.spin.setRange(0, 999999)
  
        # setting prefix to spin
        self.spin.setPrefix("PREFIX ")
  
        # setting suffix to spin
        self.spin.setSuffix(" SUFFIX")
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 200, 300, 60)
  
        # getting font metrics
        f_metrics = self.spin.fontMetrics()
  
        # getting ascent
        ascent = f_metrics.ascent()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Ascent : " + str(ascent))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
