PyQt5 QSpinBox – Getting the Special Value Text

  • Last Updated : 28 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the special value text of the spin box. By default there is no special value text but by setting special value text to spin box will display this special text instead of a numeric value whenever the current value is equal to minimum value. Typical use of this is to indicate that this choice has a special (default) meaning. Special value text can be set with the help of setSpecialValueText method.

In order to do this we use specialValueText method with the spin box object.

Syntax : spin_box.sepecialValueText()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns string



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")
  
        # setting special value text
        self.spin.setSpecialValueText("Geeks for Geeks")
  
        # setting status tip to the spin box
        self.spin.setStatusTip("Small Value")
  
        # creating a label
        self.label = QLabel(self)
  
        # making label multi line
        self.label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # setting label geometry
        self.label.setGeometry(100, 200, 250, 60)
  
        # getting special value text
        value = self.spin.specialValueText()
  
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("Special value text  : " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
