clear() method in PyQt5
  • Last Updated : 26 Mar, 2020

While using PyQt5, there occur a need of removing or clearing labels in order to do so clear() method is used. This method belongs to the QLabel class, and can be used on only label widgets.

Syntax : label.clear()
Argument : It takes no argument.
Action Performed : It clears(remove) the label from main window.

Below is the implementation of this method.

Code :




# importing the required libraries
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
        # set the title
        self.setWindowTitle("Move")
  
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(0, 0, 500, 300)
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label1 = QLabel('Label 1', self)
  
        # moving the widget
        # move(left, top)
        self.label1.move(100, 100)
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label2 = QLabel('Label 2 ', self)
  
        # moving the widget
        # move(left, top)
        self.label2.move(100, 120)
  
        # clearing label 2
        self.label2.clear()
  
        # creating a label widget
        self.label3 = QLabel('Label 3', self)
  
        # moving the widget
        # move(left, top)
        self.label3.move(100, 140)
  
  
  
        # show all the widgets
        self.show()
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())

Output :
clear-method-pyqt
As on the above image we can see Label2 will not be seen because of clear() method.
