PyQt5 QSpinbox – How to enable accept drops

  • Last Updated : 17 May, 2020
Geek Week

In this article we will see how we can enable the accept of drops in spin box, we know we can make drag enabled using setDragEnabled method with line edit object of spin box, but what is the use of dragging the text we can’t drop it anywhere. Allowing accept drop means that spin box has a property now to accept the drop text.

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

Syntax : line_edit.setAcceptDrops(True)

Argument : It takes bool as argument

Return: It returns None



Note : This method only make the accept drop property true in order to accept and display the text we have to add dragEnterEvent and dropEvent to spin box object.

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")
  
        # allowing accept drops
        self.spin.setAcceptDrops(True)
  
        # creating another spin box
        another_spin = QSpinBox(self)
  
        # setting drag enabled
        another_spin.lineEdit().setDragEnabled(True)
  
          
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
