import sys
  
  
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
  
  
        # set the title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python")
  
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel("Label", self)
  
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(0, 0)
  
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :3px solid black;")
  
        # setting label tool tip
