In this article we will see how we can access the tool tip duration to the combo box. Tool tip is basically a tip occur when mouse hover over the combo box widget. In order to set the tool tip to the combo box we use setToolTip method. In order to set the tool tip duration we use setToolTipDuration method.

Note : Tool tip get only visible when mouse hover over the combo box not on the drop down view.

In order to access the tool tip duration we use toolTipDuration method.

Syntax : combo_box.toolTipDuration()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns integer i.e milliseconds

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):
        super().__init__()
  
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
  
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
  
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
  
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
  
        # creating a combo box widget
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
  
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 150, 30)
  
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Sayian", "Super Sayian"]
  
        # making it editable
        self.combo_box.setEditable(True)
  
        # adding list of items to combo box
        self.combo_box.addItems(geek_list)
  
        # tool tip
        tip = "Sayian Tip"
  
        # setting tool tip to the combo box
        self.combo_box.setToolTip(tip)
  
        # setting duration to the tool tip
        self.combo_box.setToolTipDuration(2000)
  
        # getting the tool tip duration
        duration = self.combo_box.toolTipDuration()
  
        # creating label to show the duration time
        label = QLabel("Duration  : " + str(duration), self)
  
        # setting geometry of the label
        label.setGeometry(200, 100, 200, 30)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
