PyQt5 QSpinBox – Getting word spacing

In this article we will see how we can get the word spacing in the text of spin box. Words are group of single alphabet which is separated by other alphabets with a space, word spacing will increase this space between them. We can set word spacing with the help of setWordSpacing method.

Note : Setting spacing a lower value can’t decrease the spacing.

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

Syntax : font.wordSpacing()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns float

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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
        # 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(" one two")
        # getting font of the spin box
        font = self.spin.font()
        # setting word spacing
        # reassigning this font to the spin box
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 200, 300, 60)
        # getting word spacing
        check = font.wordSpacing()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Word Spacing : " + str(check))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
