PyQt5 QSpinBox – Selecting all the text

In this article we will see how we can select all the text of the spin box, selecting text doesn’t mean printing or getting just selecting it. When we select text using mouse selected text get highlighted and with the help of right click of mouse button we can see option of copying and other option. Below is how selected text and when right click is pressed looks like.

In order to select the text we use selectAll method.

Syntax : spin_box.selectAll()

Argument : It takes no argument

Action performed : Select the text of the spin box

Note : It selects all the text in the spin box except the prefix and suffix.

Implementation steps :
1. Create a spin box
2. Add suffix and prefix (optional)
3. Set range of the spin box (to increase the values)
4. Create a label to show info about the push button
4. Create a push button and add action to it
5. Inside the action select the text of spin box

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 label
        self.label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry
        self.label.setGeometry(100, 200, 300, 40)
        # setting text to the label
        self.label.setText("When push button get pressed value get selected")
        # creating push button
        button = QPushButton("Press", self)
        # adding action to the push button
    # method called by push button
    def push_method(self):
        # selecting all the text in spin box
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
