This class decorator is equivalent to the Q_ENUM macro from Qt. The decorator is used to register a Python Enum derived class to the meta-object system, which is available via QObject.staticMetaObject. The enumerator must be in a QObject derived class to be registered.


from enum import Enum, auto

from PySide6.QtCore import QEnum, QObject

class Demo(QObject):

    class Orientation(Enum):
        North, East, South, West = range(4)

See @QFlag for registering Python Flag derived classes.

Meanwhile all enums and flags have been converted to Python Enums (default since PySide 6.4), see the The New Python Enums section.
