PyQt5 – Checking if ComboBox is editable or not

  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how we can know if a combo box is editable or not. Editable combo box is such that user and change the value of it by typing. By default when we create a combo box we can only choose from the option in the drop down menu although in editable combo box we can set the text by our self. In order to do make editable combobox we use setEditable method

In order to check if combo box is editable or not we use isEditable,

Syntax : combo_box.isEditable()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : it returns bool

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):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # 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, 120, 30)
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Geek", "Geeky Geek", "Legend Geek", "Ultra Legend Geek"]
        # adding list of items to combo box
        # creating a editable combo box
        # checking if it is editable or not
        check = self.combo_box.isEditable()
        # creating label to show the status
        label = QLabel("Editable ? : " + str(check), self)
        # setting geometry of label
        label.setGeometry(200, 200, 200, 30)
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
