In the docs https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qgraphicsdropshadoweffect.html <https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qgraphicsdropshadoweffect.html> it says that
this is part of widgets "qmake:	QT += widgets"
That tells me that I should look in PyQt5.QtWidgets to find the class.

>>> from PyQt5 import QtWidgets

>>> QtWidgets.QGraphicsDropShadowEffect
<class 'PyQt5.QtWidgets.QGraphicsDropShadowEffect'>

How can I do this, I mean is there an inbuilt function. I tried adding box-shadows, box-shadow and boxshadow in the style sheet but everytime it says no property called boxshadow.
