PyQt5 – Add Label to StatusBar

  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to add label to a status bar. We can set text to status bar by using showMessage method.

Label and StatusBar ?
A label is a graphical control element which displays text on a form. It is usually a static control; having no interactivity. A label is generally used to identify a nearby text box or other widget. A status bar is a horizontal bar, usually at the bottom of the screen or window, showing information about a document being edited or a program running.

In order to do this we will do following steps :

1. Create a label
2. Add text to label
3. Create object of status bar
4. Add label to status bar

Code :

from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(60, 60, 600, 400)
        # setting status bar message
        self.statusBar().showMessage("This is status bar")
        # setting  border and padding with different sizes
        self.statusBar().setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;")
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("Label 1")
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :2px solid blue;")
        # adding label to status bar
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
