Detailed Description

A drop shadow effect renders the source with a drop shadow. The color of the drop shadow can be modified using the setColor() function. The drop shadow offset can be modified using the setOffset() function and the blur radius of the drop shadow can be changed with the setBlurRadius() function.

By default, the drop shadow is a semi-transparent dark gray ( QColor (63, 63, 63, 180)) shadow, blurred with a radius of 1 at an offset of 8 pixels towards the lower right. The drop shadow offset is specified in device coordinates.

class PySide2.QtWidgets.QGraphicsDropShadowEffect([parent=None])
param parent

PySide2.QtCore.QObject

Constructs a new QGraphicsDropShadowEffect instance. The parent parameter is passed to QGraphicsEffect ‘s constructor.

PySide2.QtWidgets.QGraphicsDropShadowEffect.blurRadius()
Return type

float

This property holds the blur radius in pixels of the drop shadow..

Using a smaller radius results in a sharper shadow, whereas using a bigger radius results in a more blurred shadow.

By default, the blur radius is 1 pixel.
