In this article we will see how we can set the style hint of the spin box text. Style hints are used by the font matching algorithm to find an appropriate default family if a selected font family is not available. There are many styles hints offered by the spin box like AnyStyle, SansSerif, Times etc.
In order to do this we use setStyleHint method with the QFont object of the spin box. 

Syntax : font.setStyleHint(style_hint, style_preference)
Argument : It takes style hint as argument and second argument is optional which is the preference
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):
        # 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 range to the spin box
        self.spin.setRange(0, 999999)
        # setting prefix to spin
        self.spin.setPrefix("PREFIX ")
        # setting suffix to spin
        self.spin.setSuffix(" SUFFIX")
        # getting font of the spin box
        font = self.spin.font()
        # setting style Hint
        font.setStyleHint(QFont.Serif, QFont.PreferOutline)
        # reassigning this font to the spin box
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
