QVBoxLayout#

The QVBoxLayout class lines up widgets vertically. More

Detailed Description#

This class is used to construct vertical box layout objects. See QBoxLayout for details.

The simplest use of the class is like this:

window = QWidget()        button1 = QPushButton("One")        button2 = QPushButton("Two")
button3 = QPushButton("Three")
button4 = QPushButton("Four")
button5 = QPushButton("Five")
layout = QVBoxLayout(window)        layout.addWidget(button1)
layout.addWidget(button2)
layout.addWidget(button3)
layout.addWidget(button4)
layout.addWidget(button5)        window.show()

First, we create the widgets we want to add to the layout. Then, we create the QVBoxLayout object, setting window as parent by passing it in the constructor; next we add the widgets to the layout. window will be the parent of the widgets that are added to the layout.

If you don’t pass a parent window to the constructor, you can at a later point use setLayout() to install the QVBoxLayout object onto window. At that point, the widgets in the layout are reparented to have window as their parent.
