__init__(parent=None, **opts)[source]

Arrows can be initialized with any keyword arguments accepted by the setStyle() method.


Changes the appearance of the arrow. All arguments are optional:

Keyword Arguments:  
angle Orientation of the arrow in degrees. Default is 0; arrow pointing to the left.
headLen Length of the arrow head, from tip to base. default=20
headWidth Width of the arrow head at its base. If headWidth is specified, it overrides tipAngle.
tipAngle Angle of the tip of the arrow in degrees. Smaller values make a ‘sharper’ arrow. default=25
baseAngle Angle of the base of the arrow head. Default is 0, which means that the base of the arrow head is perpendicular to the arrow tail.
tailLen Length of the arrow tail, measured from the base of the arrow head to the end of the tail. If this value is None, no tail will be drawn. default=None
tailWidth Width of the tail. default=3
pen The pen used to draw the outline of the arrow.
brush The brush used to fill the arrow.
pxMode If True, then the arrow is drawn as a fixed size regardless of the scale of its parents (including the ViewBox zoom level).
