PyQt5 QSpinBox – Getting tight bounding rectangle of the font

In this article we will see how we can get the tight bounding rectangle of the spin box’s font i.e text. The bounding rectangle always covers at least the set of pixels the text would cover if drawn at (0, 0).

Note : Newline characters are processed as normal characters, not as line breaks.

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

Syntax : font_metrics.tightBoundingRect(text)

Argument : It takes string as argument



Return : It returns QRect object.

Below is the implementation
