In this article we will see how we can get word wrap property of the QListWidget. QListWidget is a convenience class that provides a list view with a classic item-based interface for adding and removing items. QListWidget uses an internal model to manage each QListWidgetItem in the list. This property holds the item text word-wrapping policy. If this property is true then the item text is wrapped where necessary at word-breaks; otherwise it is not wrapped at all. This property is false by default, it can be set with the help of setWordWrap method.

In order to do this we will use wordWrap method with the list widget object.

Syntax : list_widget.wordWrap()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns bool

Below is the implementation




# 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 a QListWidget
        list_widget = QListWidget(self)
  
        # setting geometry to it
        list_widget.setGeometry(50, 70, 150, 60)
  
        # list widget items
        item1 = QListWidgetItem("PyQt5 Geeks for Geeks")
        item2 = QListWidgetItem("B")
        item3 = QListWidgetItem("C")
  
        # adding items to the list widget
        list_widget.addItem(item1)
        list_widget.addItem(item2)
        list_widget.addItem(item3)
  
        # setting wordwrap property
        list_widget.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # creating a label
        label = QLabel("GeesforGeeks", self)
  
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(230, 80, 280, 80)
  
        # making label multi line
        label.setWordWrap(True)
  
        # getting word wrap property
        value = list_widget.wordWrap()
  
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Word Wrap  : " + str(value))
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
