PyQt5 – How to change size of the Label | label.resize method

While designing any GUI(Graphical User Interface) application we create labels that provide information, but sometimes there might be a case when the label size is not appropriate for the content then need of resizing of label arises.

In this tutorial, we will see how to change the size of the label in PyQt5. For this we will use resize() method.

Syntax : label.resize(width, height)

Argument : It takes two integers as the argument which are :
1. Width to be set.
2. Height to be set.

Code :





# importing the required libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
from PyQt5 import QtCore
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(0, 0, 400, 300)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel('Normal Label', self)
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
        # setting up border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border: 1px solid black;")
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_2 = QLabel('====== extra width label =====', self)
        # moving position
        self.label_2.move(100, 150)
        # setting up border
        self.label_2.setStyleSheet("border: 1px solid black;")
        # resizing the widget
        self.label_2.resize(200, 20)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_3 = QLabel('tiny label', self)
        # moving position
        self.label_3.move(100, 200)
        # setting up border
        self.label_3.setStyleSheet("border: 1px solid black;")
        # resizing the widget
        self.label_3.resize(60, 15)
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
