In this article we will see how to set action to a push button. QPushButton is a simple button in PyQt, when clicked by a user some associated action gets performed. For adding this button into the application, QPushButton class is used.

Syntax : button.clicked.connect(function)

Argument : It takes function as a argument.

Action performed: When button will be clicked it will call the passes function.



Code :




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
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 push button
        button = QPushButton("CLICK", self)
  
        # setting geometry of button
        button.setGeometry(200, 150, 100, 30)
  
        # adding action to a button
        button.clicked.connect(self.clickme)
  
    # action method
    def clickme(self):
  
        # printing pressed
        print("pressed")
  
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
  
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
  
# start the app
