PyQt5 QSpinbox – How to drag text from it

  • Last Updated : 17 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can drag the text/content i.e whole text including prefix and suffix from it. When we create a spin box we can’t drag text from it, dragging text means moving the selected text any where according to the cursor.

In order to do this we use setDragEnabled method with the line edit object of spin box.

Syntax : line_edit.setDragEnabled(True)

Argument : It takes bool as argument

Return: It returns None

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 prefix to spin
        self.spin.setPrefix("Prefix ")
  
        # setting suffix to spin
        self.spin.setSuffix(" Suffix")
          
        # getting the line edit object
        line = self.spin.lineEdit()
          
        # enabling the drag 
        line.setDragEnabled(True)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
