In this article we will see how we can access the step type of the spin box, there are two types of step types i.e default one which increment value normally and other is adaptive decimal.

In order to do this we will use stepType method

Note : This feature was introduced in Qt 5.12. so lower versions don’t have this feature.

Syntax : spin_box.stepType()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns QAbstractionSpinBox object but when it printed it shows value 0 or 1

Steps for implementation :
1. Create a spin box
2. Set step type to it with the help of setStepStype method
3. Create label to show the step type
4. Get the step type with the help of stepType method
5. Show type through label

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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating spin box
        self.spin = QSpinBox(self)
        # setting geometry to spin box
        self.spin.setGeometry(100, 100, 150, 40)
        # setting range
        self.spin.setRange(0, 10000)
        # setting value
        # setting step type
        # creating label
        label = QLabel(self)
        # setting geometry to the label
        label.setGeometry(100, 160, 200, 30)
        # getting single step size
        step_type = self.spin.stepType()
        # setting text to the label
        label.setText("Step Type : " + str(step_type))
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
