PyQt5 QSpinBox – Setting base size

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
