PyQt5 – Checking if drop down items are hidden or not in ComboBox
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how we can check if the items of the combo box from the drop down box is hidden or not i.e from the view box. In order to do so we have to get the view object of combo box and had to check it.

In order to check if the items are hidden or not we have to do the following steps –

1. Create Combo box
2. Add items to the combo box
3. Get the view object of combo box
4. Check if the view object is hidden or not
5. Create label to show the hidden status

Syntax :

# getting view part of combo box
view = self.combo_box.view()

# checking if the view object is hidden or not
status = view.isHidden()

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, 150, 30)
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Sayian", "Super Sayian", "Super Sayian 2", "Super Sayian B"]
        # making it editable
        # adding list of items to combo box
        # getting view part of combo box
        view = self.combo_box.view()
        # making view box hidden
        # checking if the view object is hidden or not
        status = view.isHidden()
        # creating label to show the status
        label = QLabel("Hidden ?: " + str(status), self)
        # setting geometry of the label
        label.setGeometry(200, 100, 300, 30)
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
