PyQt5 QSpinBox – How to get the elided text through font
  • Last Updated : 26 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the elided text of the spin box. If the string text is wider than width, an elided version of the string would be a string with “…” in it. Otherwise, original string will be displayed.

There are three mode parameters to get the elided text. The mode parameter specifies whether the text is elided on the left (e.g., “…tech”), in the middle (e.g., “Tr…ch”), or on the right (e.g., “Trol…”).

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

Syntax : font_metrics.elidedText(text, Qt.ElideRight, 80)

Argument : It takes 3 argument, first is the spin box text, second is the elide mode and third is the width in pixel.



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 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")
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel(self)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 200, 300, 60)
  
        # getting font metrics
        f_metrics = self.spin.fontMetrics()
  
        # text
        text = self.spin.text()
  
        # getting elided text
        elided_text = f_metrics.elidedText(text, Qt.ElideRight, 80)
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Elided Text : " + str(elided_text))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
