Synopsis

Functions

Virtual functions

Detailed Description

The class is designed as a common super class for widgets like QSpinBox , QDoubleSpinBox and QDateTimeEdit

Here are the main properties of the class:

  1. text : The text that is displayed in the QAbstractSpinBox .

  2. alignment : The alignment of the text in the QAbstractSpinBox .

  3. wrapping : Whether the QAbstractSpinBox wraps from the minimum value to the maximum value and vice versa.

QAbstractSpinBox provides a virtual stepBy() function that is called whenever the user triggers a step. This function takes an integer value to signify how many steps were taken. E.g. Pressing Key_Down will trigger a call to stepBy (-1).

When the user triggers a step whilst holding the ControlModifier , QAbstractSpinBox steps by 10 instead of making a single step. This step modifier affects wheel events, key events and interaction with the spinbox buttons. Note that on macOS, Control corresponds to the Command key.

Since Qt 5.12, SH_SpinBox_StepModifier can be used to select which KeyboardModifier increases the step rate. NoModifier disables this feature.

QAbstractSpinBox also provide a virtual function stepEnabled() to determine whether stepping up/down is allowed at any point. This function returns a bitset of StepEnabled .

PySide6.QtWidgets.QAbstractSpinBox.editingFinished()
PySide6.QtWidgets.QAbstractSpinBox.fixup(input)
Parameters

input – str

This virtual function is called by the QAbstractSpinBox if the input is not validated to Acceptable when Return is pressed or interpretText() is called. It will try to change the text so it is valid. Reimplemented in the various subclasses.

Return type

bool

PySide6.QtWidgets.QAbstractSpinBox.initStyleOption(option)
Parameters

optionPySide6.QtWidgets.QStyleOptionSpinBox

Initialize option with the values from this QSpinBox . This method is useful for subclasses when they need a QStyleOptionSpinBox , but don’t want to fill in all the information themselves.

PySide6.QtWidgets.QAbstractSpinBox.stepBy(steps)
Parameters

steps – int

Virtual function that is called whenever the user triggers a step. The steps parameter indicates how many steps were taken. For example, pressing Qt::Key_Down will trigger a call to stepBy(-1), whereas pressing Qt::Key_PageUp will trigger a call to stepBy(10).

If you subclass QAbstractSpinBox you must reimplement this function. Note that this function is called even if the resulting value will be outside the bounds of minimum and maximum. It’s this function’s job to handle these situations.

stepUp() stepDown() keyPressEvent()

PySide6.QtWidgets.QAbstractSpinBox.stepDown()

Steps down by one linestep Calling this slot is analogous to calling stepBy (-1);

See also

stepBy() stepUp()

PySide6.QtWidgets.QAbstractSpinBox.stepEnabled()
Return type

StepEnabled

Virtual function that determines whether stepping up and down is legal at any given time.

The up arrow will be painted as disabled unless ( & StepUpEnabled ) != 0.

The default implementation will return ( StepUpEnabled | StepDownEnabled ) if wrapping is turned on. Else it will return StepDownEnabled if value is > minimum() or’ed with StepUpEnabled if value < maximum().

If you subclass QAbstractSpinBox you will need to reimplement this function.

PySide6.QtWidgets.QAbstractSpinBox.stepUp()

Steps up by one linestep Calling this slot is analogous to calling stepBy (1);

str

PySide6.QtWidgets.QAbstractSpinBox.validate(input, pos)
Parameters
  • input – str

  • pos – int

Return type

PyObject

This virtual function is called by the QAbstractSpinBox to determine whether input is valid. The pos parameter indicates the position in the string. Reimplemented in the various subclasses.
