PyQt5 – How to Access ComboBox Description | accessibleDescription method

  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2020

In this article we will see how to access the description of the combo box. Description is the detailed information about the combo box which tells about the functionality use cases and other main information to understand the working of the Combo box, in order to set the description to the combo box we use setAccessibleDescription method.

In order to access the description of the combo box we use accessibleDescription method.

Syntax : combo_box.accessibleDescription()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns string

Note : If no description was set to the combo box then this will return null string.

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 Saiyan", "Super Sayian 2", "Super Sayian B"]
  
        # making it editable
        self.combo_box.setEditable(True)
  
        # adding list of items to combo box
        self.combo_box.addItems(geek_list)
  
        # description text
        text = " This is a description of the combo box "
  
        # setting description to the combo box
        self.combo_box.setAccessibleDescription(text)
  
        # getting the description
        get_text = self.combo_box.accessibleDescription()
  
        # creating label to show the description
        label = QLabel("Description : " + str(get_text), self)
  
        # setting geometry of the label
        label.setGeometry(150, 100, 300, 30)
  
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
