PyQt5 QSpinBox – How to override the flags

  • Last Updated : 28 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can override the window flags of the spin box. Spin box has certain flags, flags specifies the widget properties so overriding the flags means to change the properties. For example if user set Qt.CoverWindow flag to spin box, spin box will not be visible.

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

Syntax : spin_box.overrideWindowFlags(flag)



Argument : It takes Qt flags 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 range to the spin box
        self.spin.setRange(1, 999999)
  
        # setting prefix to spin
        self.spin.setPrefix("PREFIX ")
  
        # setting suffix to spin
        self.spin.setSuffix(" SUFFIX")
  
        # overriding the spin box's window flags
        self.spin.overrideWindowFlags(Qt.CoverWindow)
  
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
