The same that it would mean if it would return Qt::Orientation::Horizontal or Qt::HorizontalOrientation :)

I’m guessing: whether the handle gets dragged horizontally or vertically, ie the opposite of what one would expect (whether the handle is v horizontal or vertical line). In which case the problem is the name of the property not of the enum type.
