In this article we will see how we can get the letter spacing in the text of spin box, letter spacing is the distance(gap) in-between two consecutive letter. Spacing can be change by specifying the pixels or the percentage. In order to set the spacing we use setLetterSpacing method with the QFont object of the spin box. In order to do this we use letterSpacing method with the QFont object of the spin box
Syntax : font.letterSpacing() Argument : It takes no argument Return : It returns floating value
Note : The returned value doesn’t tell if the value is in percent or in percentage Below is the implementation
# importing libraries

        # setting title

        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")
  
        # getting font of the spin box
        font = self.spin.font()
  
        # setting letter spacing
        font.setLetterSpacing(QFont.AbsoluteSpacing, 8)
  
        # reassigning this font to the spin box
        self.spin.setFont(font)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 200, 300, 60)
  
        # getting letter spacing in between the text
        space = font.letterSpacing()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Spacing Size : " + str(space))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
