Detailed Description#

Normally, you don’t need to use this class directly. Qt’s built-in layout managers provide the following functions for manipulating empty space in layouts:

class PySide6.QtWidgets.QSpacerItem(w, h[, hData=QSizePolicy.Minimum[, vData=QSizePolicy.Minimum]])#
Parameters

Constructs a spacer item with preferred width w, preferred height h, horizontal size policy hPolicy and vertical size policy vPolicy.

The default values provide a gap that is able to stretch if nothing else wants the space.

PySide6.QtWidgets.QSpacerItem.changeSize(w, h[, hData=QSizePolicy.Minimum[, vData=QSizePolicy.Minimum]])#
Parameters

Changes this spacer item to have preferred width w, preferred height h, horizontal size policy hPolicy and vertical size policy vPolicy.

The default values provide a gap that is able to stretch if nothing else wants the space.

Note that if is called after the spacer item has been added to a layout, it is necessary to invalidate the layout in order for the spacer item’s new size to take effect.
