PyQt5 QSpinBox – Getting Style Hint
  • Last Updated : 22 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the style hint of the spin box text. Style hints are used by the font matching algorithm to find an appropriate default family if a selected font family is not available. There are many styles hints offered by the spin box like AnyStyle, SansSerif, Times etc. We can set the style hint to the spin box with the help of setStyleHint method.

In order to do this we use styleHint method with the QFont object of the spin box.

Syntax : font.styleHint()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns QFont’s Style hint object but when get 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, 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")
  
        # getting font of the spin box
        font = self.spin.font()
  
        # setting style hint
        font.setStyleHint(QFont.Serif, QFont.PreferOutline)
  
        # 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 style hint
        style_hint = font.styleHint()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Style Hint value: " + str(style_hint))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
