In this article we will see how we can set the base size to the spin box, base size is used to calculate a proper spin box size if the spin box defines sizeIncrement. By default, for a newly-created spin box, this property contains a size with zero width and height.

Below is the formula for getting new spin box size when main window get bigger.

width = baseSize().width() + i * sizeIncrement().width()
height = baseSize().height() + j * sizeIncrement().height()

Here i, j are the size increment in the main window

In order to set base size we use setBaseSize method.

Syntax : spin_box.setBaseSize(width, height)

Argument : It takes two integer argument i.e base and height

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 prefix to spin
        self.spin.setPrefix("Prefix ")
  
        # setting suffix to spin
        self.spin.setSuffix(" Suffix")
  
        # setting base size
        self.spin.setBaseSize(250, 40)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
