In this article we will see how we can set or change the top margin of the spin box, by default there is no margin set to the spin box i.e top margin value is zero. Although we can change that, setting margin to the spin box will not display any change in the spin box due to overriding take place by the widget to maintain its structure. But in order to set margin to the spin box we have set margin to the spin box’s line edit object by which we can display the margin in spin box.

In order to do this we use setTop method Syntax : margin.setTop(n) Here margin is the QMargin object of the QLineEdit object which belongs to spin box Argument : It take integer as argument Return : It returns None

Implementation steps : 1. Create a spin box 2. Get the line edit object of the spin box 3. Get the margin object from the spin box 4. Set the top margin to the spin box 5. Add this margin object back to the line edit object 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 line edit object
        line_edit = self.spin.lineEdit()
        # getting margins
        margin = line_edit.contentsMargins()
        # setting top margin
        # setting this margin back to line edit
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
