In this article we will see how we can get the layout direction of the QDockWidget. QDockWidget provides the concept of dock widgets, also know as tool palettes or utility windows. Dock windows are secondary windows placed in the dock widget area around the central widget in a QMainWindow(original window). Layout specifies how the children get arranged, by setting layout direction we can specify the order of the arrangement, it can be set with the help of setLayoutDirection method.
 

In order to do this we will use layoutDirection method with the dock widget object.
Syntax : dock.layoutDirection()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It returns direction object 
 

Below is the implementation 
 

Python3




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import *
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui
from PyQt5.QtGui import *
from PyQt5.QtCore import *
import sys
 
 
class Window(QMainWindow):
 
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
 
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
 
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 500, 400)
 
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
 
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
 
    # method for components
    def UiComponents(self):
 
        # creating dock widget
        dock = QDockWidget(self)
 
        # setting title to the dock widget
        dock.setWindowTitle("                   GfG ")
 
 
        # push button
        push = QPushButton("Press", self)
 
        # setting widget to the dock
        dock.setWidget(push)
 
        # setting layout direction
        dock.setLayoutDirection(Qt.RightToLeft)
 
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GfG", self)
 
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 200, 300, 80)
 
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
 
        # setting geometry tot he dock widget
        dock.setGeometry(100, 0, 200, 30)
 
        # getting layout direction of dock
        value = dock.layoutDirection()
 
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Layout Direction : " + str(value))
 
 
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
 
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
 
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())


Output :
