PyQt5 QSpinBox – Making it enabled

In this article we will see how we can make spin box enabled according to the user, disabled spin box is basically spin box which can’t be edited i.e which get disabled and enabled spin box is normal spin box, by default spin box is enabled. In order to make spin box disabled we use setDisabled method.

In order to do so we use setEnabled method.

Syntax : spin_box.setEnabled(bool)

Argument : It takes bool as argument

Return : It returns None

Implementation steps :
1. Create a spin box
2. Create a push button and add action to the push button
3. Inside the action make the spin box disabled
4. Create another push button and add action to it
5. Inside the action make the spin box enabled

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 prefix to spin
        self.spin.setPrefix("Prefix ")
        # setting suffix to spin
        self.spin.setSuffix(" Suffix")
        # setting range to spin
        self.spin.setRange(0, 99999)
        # creating push button
        button = QPushButton("Disable", self)
        # setting button geometry
        button.setGeometry(100, 160, 100, 40)
        # adding action to the push button
        # creating push button
        e_button = QPushButton("Enable", self)
        # setting button geometry
        e_button.setGeometry(220, 160, 100, 40)
        # adding action to the push button
    # method called by push button
    def push_method(self):
        # making spin box disabled
    # method called by e_button
    def another_method(self):
        # making spin box enabled
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
